We have been getting ready for Christmas! We learnt the story of the nativity and supported the Year 2 performance with our songs. We also had a visit from the innkeeper who answered our questions about what it was like the night that Mary and Joseph visited.


As well as our nativity story, we decorated the room and dressed up in Christmas jumpers and party clothes, as well as enjoying a visit from Santa Claus and our end of term party together.
