What a busy and exciting week we have had – we have now sent home all the wonderful Christmas crafts the children have been making – we hope you really like them!
On Monday we had lots of fun making our Christmas biscuits – we hope you enjoyed them! We each had our own dough to roll out after washing our hands and wearing aprons. Maybe next year we can do some more baking as the children seem to really enjoy it – especially the decorating part!
In Child Initiated Learning we have had lots of fun playing with Christmas play dough, making patterns in the snow (plain flour!) and generally using up our excess energy playing outside. Inside we have all been practicing our wrapping skills. The children on Wednesday set up a few chairs together as they decided they needed to go on a bus: so we rolled with it and with help they came up with tickets, the steering wheel, and even seat belts (masking tape)! They stopped at the zoo and the beach – what fabulous imaginations we all have!
On Wednesday we had a very special visitor and the children were really excited about seeing Father Christmas. We loved seeing all the lovely sparkly Christmas jumpers.
Until next year (!), do good looking for adventures, clean your ears out for good listening and turn your noggins (brains) on for good learning.
Take care, stay safe, enjoy the Holidays, and Merry Christmas to all of you who celebrate!
