As we prepare for the Christmas break, we have been keeping spirits high in school with singing festive songs - Jingle Bells and We Wish You a Merry Christmas are two the children know well!
Children have been making Christmas decorations using recyclable materials. We think carefully about the environment and try to reuse things and use scraps of tinsel as treasure.
Children have been sharing Christmas books and some children have listened to the story of the Nativity. They have acted out the story, using dressing up clothes and we have a small stable in Sunflower. The children were very interested in the gifts that are for Baby Jesus.
There has been lots of Christmas baking, with children following instructions, working together and using wonderful spices. One parent came in the make Weinachtsplatzchen (German Christmas Cookies). The recipe is below for you to try at home!
Children in the garden made hot chocolate to help keep warm and develop our real life understanding of measuring and number.
Today we have Christmas singing around the campfire - but it seems the rain has arrived, in which case we will move indoors and have a campfire on the large screen to keep us warm and cosy.
Our Christmas Party is on Tuesday 19 December and children finish school at 12pm.
We wish you, your families and the whole world peace and love for the festivities and 2024.
