Hereford's December Blog


In December we looked at the amazing story of 'Santa Post'. First, we drew a story map, then we wrote letters to Father Christmas. In these letters we asked him for the gifts that we wanted the most! Once we had written to Father Christmas we innovated our letters and wrote to either an elf, Rudolf or Mrs Claus.


In Maths we had began December by looking at the difference between heavier and lighter. We used scales to compare different objects within the classroom using different measuring techniques. We also looked at longer and shorter. When we were learning about this we used lots of different measuring techniques such as using our hands and feet, measuring with cubes and using a ruler. We have also been practising to count in twos every day.

Christmas Performance:

Hereford Class were amazing during December and performed their Nativity fantastically to all the parents of all three classes. The children sang ‘Rat-a-tat-tat’ all by themselves and joined in with others. My favourite was ‘Little Donkey’ but I think theirs was ‘It was on a Starry Night’. All of the children did so so well and we are all very proud of them. 

Safari week:

For the last week on the half term, we have been in the Christmas spirit. We made lots of different things, using our best art skills to help us. We created a snowman card, finger painted Christmas scenes and our own Christmas jumper.  We hope you have enjoyed looking at the creations they have brought home for you. During this time, we also got a visit from Father Christmas. He answered lots of questions and gave us a gift!



I would like to say thank you for all of your help and hard work this term.


I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and happy new year.
