I went to school
and learnt how to get cool
I like to learn to read
I always succeed
When I get home I swim in the pool

There was an old man who wore red
He brought presents to children in bed
He flew through the air
Delivering presents everywhere
Landing his sleigh in a shed.
There once was a big brown bear
Who had very long luscious hair
He went to the shop
To buy a new mop
But he didn’t get anything there!
One day there was a girl
Her name was not Pearl
Her name was really Little Red Riding Hood
She was feeling very good.
One day her Grandma was sick
So she decided to go very quick!

I'm a Christmas tree
I'm as happy as can be.
I fell down a chimney
and I love singing glee.
As you can see I'm very twinkly
I'm a little happy Christmas tree.

Responsible Pet Ownership
Last Monday we went to the performing arts room to learn about Rory the dog and his owner Simon.
If you see an angry dog you stand still with your hands by your side, look to the ground and stay as quiet as a mouse.
If you want to pat a dog you stand in front of the dog, you ask the owner, you put your hand in a fist and the dog will sniff tour hand. Then you can gently pat the dogs back.

Not long until Christmas! Enjoy!
