Many thanks for your cards, gifts and most importantly, kind words.  It has been a hugely successful first term for all the children – some are unrecognisable to those that arrived back in September. 


Counting Back

Our Gingerbread Men duplicated as we found 20 of them! We had fun splitting onto 4 trays and role-playing the song.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wCZ3dzFK6BI


Rudolph Hats

For our Christmas dinner day on Wednesday, we had fun making our own reindeer hats.  You remembered how to collage his nose with tissue paper and your hands made the best antler shapes!  We hope they have all made it home.

Communication and Language


We finally made it to the end of our small world Nativity story in the cabin!  Mrs Allen has also enjoyed sharing her new story – Countdown to Christmas.  We will be sad to pack these Christmas books away tonight.

Dough Disco

Merry Christmas Everybody, Slade

Another Christmas disco this week as we have sausaged and sang to this classic Slade track.  Enjoy.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BpfHSqLXePI

Write Dance

Santa Shark


Please play and see if the children can teach you all the actions!

Forest School

Sleighs and Tinsel

With the mud and sand continuing to be frozen, the patio has been popular this week.  You have made some excellent sleighs with the crates and tinsel.

Outdoor Game

Elf Hide and Seek

Jolly, our Nursery elf, has been playing hide and seek with you outdoors and teaching you how hiding behind something whilst Staying Quiet made him tricky to find.

A message for parents – over the Christmas break, please can you continue work of independence with the children?  Own shoes/boots on, coat arms in, teach them how to zip works, gloves onto hands.  We have a feeling this Winter weather will still be with us in the New Year!

In the words of Slade, Merry Christmas Everybody!

Mrs Mander, Mrs Allen and Mrs Franklin X
