   All I Want For Christmas Is You

 

I don’t want a lot for Christmas, there is just one thing I need.

I don’t care about the presents underneath the Christmas tree.

I just want you for my own, more than you could ever know.

Make my wish come true, all I want for Christmas is you.

 

I don’t want a lot for Christmas, there is just one thing I need.

I don’t care about the presents underneath the Christmas tree.

I don’t need to hang my stocking there up on the fire place.

Santa Claus won’t make me happy with a toy on Christmas Day.

I just want you for my own, more than you would ever know.

Make my wish come true. All I want for Christmas is you.

 

I won’t ask for much this Christmas. I won’t even wish for snow.

I’m just gonna keep on waiting underneath the mistletoe.

I won’t make a list and send it to the North Pole for Saint Nick.

I won’t even stay awake to hear those magic reindeer click.

I just want you for my own, more than you could ever know.

Make my wish come true, all I want for Christmas is you.

 

All the lights are shining so brightly everywhere.

And the sound of children’s laughter fills the air.

And everyone is singing, I hear those sleigh bells ringing.

Santa won’t you bring me what I really need.

Won’t you bring my baby to me?

 

Repeat verse 1.

  • Our class story this term is Letters from the Lighthouse by Emma Carroll.
    Olive and her brother have been evacuated to Devon, but her older sister Sukie is still missing from the night of the bombs. A mysterious note found in the coat of her sister suggests that Sukie was involved in something dangerous, but Olive can't make the pieces fit together. We can not wait to find out what happens next!
    In term one during our literacy lessons we all created a comic book. These are on display in our reading area.  Come and pick one off the tree and take a read. You will be amazed at stories and illustrations within each book. How many authors do you know that are also illustrators like Amethyst class?
