It's fair to say that our science theme has been popular this term, and we are planning to cover new science topics after Christmas.
With Christmas fast approaching, we bought and decorated our tree this week. As is our tradition, we made gingerbread decorations.
Last Sunday, we also had a children's carol service at church, with craft activities for all ages beforehand. My younger two managed to take the roles of Mary and Joseph yet again in our scratch nativity; my 8 year old was the only boy taking part, and none of the other girls wanted to be Mary! In addition, my 6 year old daughter volunteered to do one of the short readings, and did really well.
We also had just about enough snow for a snowball fight - which the children made the most of before we headed off to church for the carol service.

We've not had a heavy workload this last week, as the children are pretty tired. We've made it through another term, and are very much looking forward to a couple of weeks recover a bit, rest for a while, and get ready to begin again in the new year.
