Make Your Own Christmas Tree Card
One of the last activities for our year we held Secret Santa for all class members. Each person took home a diary note explaining the expectations of Secret Santa. We needed to opt out if we didn’t want to join in, we would each get a name that we needed to buy a small Christmas present for, we could spend up to $10. 00 but no more and our present needed to be under the tree by Wednesday of week 10. Everyone joined in and some people found it very hard to keep things a secret!!!! We weren’t meant to tell anyone who we had for Secret Santa but it was really hard!!!!
To give our Secret Santas some clues for items we might like we thought of 3 subject areas or items that we might like. This was a huge help to people.
As the gifts started to arrive everyone got more and more excited – some people were caught checking out the presents!!!
On Thursday we opened the presents and tried to guess who our Secret Santa was. Everyone LOVED their presents and it was just lovely to see so many happy faces in the class. We receive all sorts of presents – books, basketballs, games, T-Shirts, soft toys, pencils, erasers, pencil grips, art books, decorations, cricket bats, One Direction books, Lego kits, cricket magazines, Science kits, nerd guns, iPod speakers, lollipops, lip gloss, Ben Ten lunch boxes, buzz bombs, cars, a calendar, pet games and, hair clip sets and so many other items!!! How lucky!!!
Here is everyone with their presents just after we’d opened them.

Did you enjoy joining in with Secret Santa?
We’ve been getting ready for Christmas. Today we went to the presentation by the local churches to participate in different Christmas activities and learn about why we celebrate Christmas.
We’ve also been making lots of Christmas decorations – many thanks to the children who have been teaching us how to make a simple Christmas decoration – plus providing all of the materials.
Here’s a bit of Christmas fun from the Jib Jab website. We hope you really enjoy our movies!!!
