This December at Horne Learning Services we are doing something fun for the children.
The Christmas Project started last week and was the first of 3 parts the children will be involved in.
|Our students' snowflakes decorate the wall|
Part 1 - Make a snowflake
Part 2 - Design a Christmas Tree
Part 3 - Write a letter to Santa Claus
So Part 1 was finished last week (8-13th Dec) and you can see the snowflakes on the wall in the picture above.
Parts 2 and 3 will be done this week (15-20th Dec). All 3 parts will be assessed for creativity, effort and good English. The overall winner of The Christmas Project will receive this little trophy:

There will also be 2nd and 3rd place trophies, in addition to consolation prizes for other notable efforts.

In Part 1 of The Christmas Project, students had 3 attempts at making a snowflake using various coloured pieces of paper and a pair of scissors. There were some excellent designs.

We are looking forward to this week where Parts 2 and 3 will be done. Part 2 - designing a Christmas tree, will be about creativity once more; Part 3 - Writing a letter to Santa Claus, will focus on imagination and good usage of the English language.
Prizes will be distributed next week (22-27th Dec) to all the best projects in class!
