Katrina organised a party at the church as a celebration of Jesus birthday. The children talked about what you need for a celebration.

 “a cake”. – Jacob

“decorations…. you have some there and there is a sign” –Isabella

“There are balloons, they are for a party”- Emily

The children helped telling the Nativity story. They discussed the long journey and how Joseph helped Mary. They then sang some songs with actions about the star

“The star is like a diamond in the sky”. -Isabella

Then the children pretended to be the animals in the story which they had acted in the Nativity play. Then they all had a party blower and a hat to have a celebration in the classroom afterwards.

We would like to say a huge Thank you to Katrina for our party and all of the fantastic learning activities she has provided over the years with Maple Class.
