Dear families,

This week we continued learning about Winter. We talked about the different kinds of activities we do in the Winter, such as; skiing, bobsledding, building a snowman, skating, and hockey.

We used puppets to retell our story of the, "Gingerbread Boy".

The cow said, "You look tasty!"

We played a letter sort game. What is different about the letters? What is the same about the letters?

These letters are all in the grass!

We practiced printing our letters using sand. 

We had fun reading some books!
 At the end of the week we all brought in our ingredients and helped make the gingerbread cookies. Many of the families want to know our special recipe we used to make our cookies, so I have posted it below.


  • 350g/12oz plain flour, plus extra for rolling out
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 125g/4½oz butter
  • 175g/6oz light soft brown sugar
  • 1 free-range egg
  • 4 tbsp honey

To decorate

  • writing icing
  • cake decorations

Adding the eggs.

Adding the cinnamon. 

A small spoon of vanilla. 

8 spoons of honey. 

The cinnamon smells strong. 

I can help you pour the vanilla. 

Now it is time to add the brown sugar.

We need to mix it!

Lets roll it out!

Keep rolling!
Now we cut our cookies out!

Now it is time to decorate.

We used ice that had food coloring to paint a Winter picture.

Look what I made!
This is a lot of fun!

My winter day!

I'm making a snowman!

I made a pattern! Hot, cold, hot, cold.
I see a pattern!

 We used pipe cleaners to build a person skiing. It was a challenge, but we found it fun trying and lots of our friends were very helpful in teaching us how to add details to our ski girl/boy.
Look I made a person with ski poles!

I made a circle!

Our friends were showing us how to give our person hair using pipe cleaners.

I did it! 

I gave mine hair and a scarf!

I'm finished! Let's go skiing. 

I'm ready for the slopes!
