Amongst our Christmas lessons and Christmas play preparations, we also have been keeping fit with our 12 Days of Fitness, our movement breaks to Christmas music!

We danced, ran, jumped, stretched...and had fun!

History - Toys

Toys was a theme for the month of December. We talked about toys from long ago - that our parents and grandparents played with. Here are some examples from our own families. 


We also looked at a timeline of our own toys - one we played with as a baby and one we enjoy playing with now. Here are our baby toys.

We are enjoying our gymnastics PE lessons this term! We are making our bodies into pancakes & bridges and doing forward rolls & backward rolls. We are excited about using the gym equipment - the spring board and trampoline.
