Year 2 enjoyed looking after the guinea pigs. Every day the children brought them into class.
They carried them up in their travel boxes and everyone in the class held and stroked the guinea pigs. Later in the week, some children helped clean out their cages.
They had to take out the old hay and sweep the cage and then put new bedding and clean water in.
The guinea pigs were scared of the children to start with but got used to them. They were really soft and friendly.
Here are some tips on how to not get a cold and to have a healthy Christmas this year:
1 – Every time you shake someones hand, wash yours. That person might have germs and make you get a cold. Running lots of water will dilute all the germs away into the drain.
2 – Go to bed! If your not feeling too well, sleeping will help. 8 to 10 hours a night is enough.
3 – Keep your hands from touching your nose and eyes. Those are the most common places for germs to enter your body.
Hope you don’t have a cold at the best time of the year.
Have a Merry Christmas
This Christmas here are some DIY ideas. You can make these for yourself or as a mini gift for your friends.
1 – Snow-Globe
Make a snow-globe in a jar. Use fake snow and a small fake tree as the Christmas tree.
2 – Pine Cone Christmas Tree
Find some pine cones outside your house, bring them inside and transform them into a mini Christmas tree. Spray fake snow on and also decorate them (optional).
3 – Christmas Chains
With your younger siblings, you can make Christmas chains. Cut strips of paper for your siblings while you stick them together and complete your chain. Afterwards you can hang it up on your wall in your living room or bedroom.
4 – Winter Lip Gloss
This will help to moisturise your lips and is a way to celebrate Christmas. Get some clear lip gloss and mix blue food colouring. The more food colouring you add, the more pigmented it gets.
5 – Winter Nails
Decorate your nails with this DIY. First, paint your nails with a colour of your choice (I would pick turquoise). Next, for a cold and icy effect, coat on clear glitter nail polish. After, with a fine brush make the snowflake like a six pointed star. For more detail do spikes on each line on the snowflake. This is a great idea for a Christmas party.
Bye guys, have a Merry Christmas!
This winter it is stifling! We usually forget about our lips, yet I have the PERFECT winter lip balm recipe for you!
1 – Get some plain Vaseline or lotion (Tesco)
2 – Put it into a container
3 – Add blue food colouring or gel (you can find some at Tesco or Asda)
4 – Mix the food colouring with the Vaseline
5 – Add some peppermint scent
6 – Sprinkle some coconut shavings on top as snow
Then hey presto! A snowy, moisturising and kawaii (cute) lip balm! You can add extra ingredients to personalise it.
That’s all folks!
Stay happy, stay festive, stay positive this Christmas.
Today I am going to tell you all about the Christmas Disco. This event will be next Thursday. It will start at 3.30pm until 5.30pm.
From tomorrow your child will need to bring £1 if they would like to go. There will also be food and drinks for them.
Today I want to show you a quick and easy recipe. I’m going to show you how to make snowmen cookies.
You will need:
- White Chocolate
- A Spoon
- Smarties or MnM’s
- Chocolate Chips
Firstly you will melt the white chocolate then dip the Oreo’s into the melted white chocolate.
Then get your smarties, use the orange one as a nose and put it in the middle of the Oreo. After you have done this get your chocolate chips and make a smiley face with them as well as two eyes at the top of the Oreo. Lastly, wait until the melted chocolate sets, then you can eat your yummy snowmen cookies!
That’s all peeps, bye!
