November was a very busy month for us in Cummins’s class. We made ‘Funny Face Cookies’ that we got from our book, Friday’s at the Café. Some of us were too hungry to wait for teacher to take a photo of our cookies! We made our own 4 – tier cake for display on the window to show our parents our great cutting skills. We made enclosures for different animals using blocks, Lego and mobilo! For the last week of November we were learning about Advent and we have started making our own Advent Calendar for Christmas.

We enjoyed the recent fine weather and went on a Nature Walk around our school grounds where we saw items like berries, cobwebs and conkers.
