Still image for this video
We managed to get a little video of the lovely elf who decorated our classroom for us! I think he is just as excited as the children were!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in our classroom!

We drew around 2D shapes to make pictures
We then had to name the shapes we had used
We loved showing off our skills to our mummies

We worked so hard!
