Drumming Lessons

We had our second drumming lesson with Alan today. It's great fun and we are learning a lot also. Before we begin drumming we always do some fun warm-up exercises. Each week we build on the previous lesson and we are learning some cool new beats-it's great!!

Learning about Space

'Educate Me' visited today and did a wonderful presentation on Space. We learned lots of interesting facts about our Solar system and got to hold models of the planets; Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Poor Pluto has been demoted and is no longer considered a planet!! The first 4 planets (Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars) are called the inner planets. They are closest to the sun. These planets are made mostly from rock. The next 4 planets (Jupiter, Saturn. Uranus and Neptune) are called the outer planets. They are made mostly of gas.

A visit from Santa!!

Despite his busy schedule Santa still had time to come and pay us a visit before Christmas. He even brought some sweets for us. Thank you Santa.
