Hi everyone, we hope you’re all happy and well as we make our way into the last month of 2022!

This week has marked the start of the Christmas festivities here in Dave’s class, and haven’t we just had the best time! On Wednesday afternoon our grown-ups began pulling all sorts of funny-shaped boxes and bags out of the storage cupboard, and by Thursday morning our normal classroom had been transformed into a festive wonderland!

Also on Thursday, we had a special advent assembly in the school hall to mark the first day of December and to learn a little bit about why we do all of these Christmas celebrations anyway. We had a great time singing along to the carols that the school band played, and we loved watching some of the other children place the advent figurines inside of the display. We were also lucky enough to have been gifted an advent calendar to share as a class, and we can’t wait to all get a turn at opening a door and getting the chocolate that’s hiding behind! We’re very very thankful to the incredible person who donated these advent calendars; buying one for each class must have cost a great amount and we can’t begin to share how grateful we are.

On Thursday afternoon we had an amazing time listening to our friend Chris, a wonderful storyteller who very kindly visited Hadrian school and put on a special interactive story just for us all about trees and the woodlands. We loved getting cosy and listening to his story, and we especially loved seeing all of his magic props! Thank you so much to Chris for visiting, and for Hadrian School for organising such lovely treats for us.

We hope everyone has a lovely weekend, and gets to begin to enjoy some of the festivities that December has to offer! See you all bright and early on Monday morning for another week of fun and festive exploration! – Dave and team 🙂
