Melbourne Cup in Prep/One

6 Nov

Yesterday was the Melbourne Cup and we celebrated it well in my classroom.

We had a class Sweep.


We coloured in a jockey and horse to match the horse we had drawn in the sweep.


We made fascinators and hats.


We all entered in Fashions of Field.


We had a pciture of a horse race where we found and coloured in horses depending on their position.


We had a hobby horse race.


and finally we watched the great race on the Big screen!


I LOVE these fun days!

I am linking up with My Little Drummer Boys  for Wordless Wednesday.

    That is a brilliant day at school! I organized something similar for mums and bubs last year where everyone could dress up in their favourite dress or going out outfit and wear a fascinator. I had hat craft and colouring in too and we had a pin the tail on the horsey!! The sweeps were fun too. I love getting in on the fun with the Melbourne Cup.

    Hobby Horse races are just the best fun aren’t they. We have them around here regularly.

    I used to love holding cup day celebrations in my classroom. And I never did manage to win the sweep!
