Today was Gingerbread Day!

Today was the day! Gingerbread Day in Year 4! It was great fun :)
We started with handwriting - "Today is Gingerbread Day. We will be having a fun day!" then moved on to crown making. After that we had the whole year group (48 children) in my room and we did the Eat the Gingerbread Body Part  Bar Graph activity.
The most popular body part this year was ... the LEFT ARM!!

After recess we divided the children up into groups and rotated them through the three classrooms doing a different activity in each room. We had gingerbread house cards in one room...

gingerbread glyphs in the 2nd room...

and cookie decorating in room 3!

After lunch we finished our bar graphs and drew pictographs before heading off to specialist lessons. For homework they all have a mini-book story where they have to fill in the missing adjectives :)

It was a super fun day and we all enjoyed ourselves very much. I should have taken a photo of the 3 teachers dressed in their brown outfits, crowns and candy buttons but sadly I forgot :( Maybe next year!


  1. Gingerbread Day sounds like lots of fun! I'm still not sure what we'll be doing. I'd better decide because we get out for break on the 20th! Anyway, welcome to the world of blogging! I am now a follower.

  2. Oooh, you get out late! We get out next Friday (14th) and it's a half day too :) I'll be lucky to get any work out of my kiddies with all the festive activities planned but we have to finish our Topic work and they still have to learn how to use a compass so I'll have to get moving first thing on Monday morning. Glad to meet you :) and thank you for the welcome :)
