This afternoon something exciting happened! We had a phone call from Santa! He rang to tell to tell us to check in the role play he had left us a special present! In the box we found an elf! The children have decided to adopt him and call him Benny! There was a letter in the box that explained that we mustn't touch Benny or else his magical power would disappear and also he wouldn't move and speak whilst we was awake! This is going to be the focus of our writing up to Christmas!
The children came in this morning to a surprise! Benny the elf had MOVED! He was sat on the top of our Christmas tree! We then had a phone call from Richard the elf! He told the children he had set them a writing challenge to write a sentence about where Benny was sat! The children found their challenge in their tray
Benny the elf was in Matilda's tray this morning! He had written a note to say he was looking forward to having a sleepover in class 2 with her! He had brought his toothbrush, a toaster and a slice of toast!!
Benny the elf has been really naughty this morning! He turned the small into a sleeping bag! He even had his toothbrush! He also decided to make a Christmas tree out of sticks which had baubles, a star and a present! Benny also swapped the star on the top of the Christmas tree to a fox!!
We had a video message this morning from Benny! He told the children that he had been to see Santa this weekend and told him how good all the children have been. He told them he tried to write his Christmas list but he was struggling with his sounds. He asked the children if he could write the following items for him: bat, ball, pen and teddy! The children then had a challenge to write his list for him. If they all completed the challenge they would all get 3 dojos!!
The children have decided to set a trap to see if they can catch Benny being a cheeky elf! They have worked together to design a trap! They have put a chocolate on top of the number line with a net over it, we think Benny will try and eat the chocolate and the new will fall! Let's see what happens in the morning!
The children have returned from lunch to find that Benny has escaped!! We have received another message from Benny, telling us that he has returned to help Santa with a special job and will be back again very soon!!! We don't know when or where but Benny has asked us to keep our eyes pealed and see if we can find him!!
