Amongst the busy-ness of the final week of term Year 6 have found some time to reflect on the highlights of this term. These included:
DT – bug homes
Music with Mrs Freeman
Young Sports Leaders
Working with younger children
Having more responsibility
Mixing with all of Year 6
Being a Christmas elf
Mrs Saturley’s help
Elspeth being born
Late Night Christmas shopping
We also thought about the new skills and knowledge that we had learnt and about people – what we had learnt about ourselves and others.
Erin Mc also reflected on the meaning of Christmas as she wrote her poetry homework.
Silver stars shining, sparkling up high,
Pale winter sun adorns the sky,
Waiting, waiting for Christmas sounds,
Crisp and sparkling, frost covers the ground.
Up the path are little elf gnomes,
Christmas carols sung in festive tones,
People wait to hear the church bells,
Some candles are lit, waxy smells.
Turkey, roast potatoes, drinks in mugs,
Family and friends and lots of hugs,
Giving presents, watching joy spread,
Emerald holly and berries red.
Remember the time when He came,
When He cured the sick and the lame,
The little King who brought such joy,
Christmas is more than just new toys.
MERRY CHRISTMAS to you all
from Miss Philpott and the Housemartins
