Five for Friday 11.12.15

Another week over and done with! 
I can't believe we have just one more week left in School before we finish for Christmas! Time is going so fast and we have been super busy!

It's Friday which means I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for 
Five for Friday!

It's been a busy week, so it was really hard choosing photos! 
Anyway, here they are:

Well, this is a little bit of a sad one. It was two years ago this past weekend that we tried to take the kiddos in my school to Lapland. I'd put together a big 'charity' and worked my socks off to raise as much money to take as many of our autistic pupils as possible. It resulted in us being delayed at the airport then cancelled, we were stuck there for 10 hours. Then, all the wonderful people of South Wales started to donate different things to us. It still brings a tear to my eye now.

You can find out more info from the news articles available here and here. You can also listen to the radio appeal here.

Pictured here with staff from the School who gave up their time to come and take some of the pupils to Lapland, I don't know how I could ever thank them enough!

This week we went on our class Christmas trip. We visited a local farm and had loads of fun! Plus it was just our class of 7 there meaning it was nice and relaxing for our children! We got to pet lots of different animals; rabbit, goats, pony and even got to see some gerbils. Then we had our faces painted and got to see Santa! But, the best part was when Santa left on his sleigh pulled by reindeers at the end !! The children loved watching him go off on his sleigh! 

We have been working hard on our term topic - The 3 Little Pigs. We have been helping the pigs build their houses! 

We have been working extra hard on Frosty the Snowman! Our Christmas concert was yesterday and our part was to sing and sign to Frosty the Snowman! The pupils all dressed up as snowmen and the staff all wore Christmas jumpers!

I finally finished off all my treat bags for the Christmas hampers! Not all of them are pictured here as I forgot to take pics of the Olaf Poo, Build an Olaf and one or two others, but here are the ones I did take pics of :)

What have you been up to this week?!
