December in Room 8!

We have been very busy during the month of December in Room 8. We have been learning all about toys! We looked at toys from other countries such as Russian dolls. We also looked at toys from the past such as a Rubix’s cube and a slinky. We had to work together to build a stairs using books in our classroom so that we could play with the slinky. We also had a toy workshop in our classroom where we had to design, assemble and wrap toys for Christmas.

We have also been busy counting down the weeks and days to Christmas. We learnt about Advent and made an Advent wreath. Each week we have a lit candle on the wreath in our classroom.

We were also lucky to have Siún teach us a Christmas dance. We practised every Thursday with Siún and today performed it on the stage for the rest of our school and parents.

There has also been an elf visiting our classroom in December. Today we all made our own elf by elfing ourselves!
