A Festive Week in P5B

This week’s review was created by Caitlin, Alyssa, Keziah, Lila, Izac, Amelie, Hannah, Scott, Rhys, Alex, Zayaan and Christopher

This week in P5b we have been having a Christmas themed festive week! We have been practicing our carol singing with P5a to prepare for our visit to Archview next week. We also had our Christmas lunch on Wednesday. The Primary 7s helped organise and serve the food and they did a super job.

We have been also been learning about how other countries celebrate Christmas because not everyone celebrates the same way. For example in India they put up Christmas stars made out of paper as a decoration. In Ireland they place candles in the windows to light the way for Mary and Joseph. In Poland they serve twelve dishes at Christmas dinner, one for each of Jesus’ disciples. In Russia they have an old lady called Babushka who gives presents to the children to make up for not guiding the three wise men to Jesus. We also learned about some weird and wacky Christmas traditions from around the world. Ask your child about the shoe throwing ritual in the Czech Republic, the Japanese and their love for a KFC Christmas dinner and the eldest daughter’s responsibilities in Sweden!

We had a Christmas Top 10 where P4-7 voted for their all time favourite Christmas songs. Then on Wednesday we gathered in the school hall for a dance and a sing song and to find out the results. The top 3 results were Jingle Bell Rock, All I want for Christmas Is You and our number one song was Last Christmas! What’s your favourite Christmas song?

Earlier in the week we were lucky enough to visit the church to watch the P1 and P2 Nativity performance. It was called The Very Hopeless Camel. We thought they did an amazing job and should be very proud of themselves!

We have been decorating our classroom this week to make it as festive as possible. As part of this we created Christmas baubles and stockings to stick on the wall. Rhys chose to split his design in half and created an amazing Christmas snowman and reindeer combination! Our classroom is now ready for Christmas!

Next week we are all in the Primary 5 choir and are performing at the church on Thursday. We are hoping that you all enjoy our performance in the afternoon and we look forward to seeing you there. We also have our Christmas party next week which we are really excited about. As part of this, we would like every child to bring in an old Christmas card for one of our games.

Have a lovely weekend!
