Christmas is coming and we have had two new friends to help build up the excitement. Holly and Jolly, our resident Nursery Elves, have not only been up to mischief in the nursery but are doing a super job of keeping an eye on how friendly we are with one another to report back to Father Christmas himself in two weeks time.
Indoors, we have been recapping on some of our favourite listening games, creating body sounds as part of our Phonics topic and learning all about the number 4 and the different ways it can be seen e.g. in a row, as a curved line, dice 4. We have had fun with Mrs Allen to our Dough Disco tune "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer". I have a real Christmassy treat for dough disco next week which Erica in particular is going to love!
Outdoors, you have been very creative with the pine cones and created your own Rudolph's as well as making some excellent carpenters with your sawing skills. You enjoyed Mrs Allen helping you to make some wood cookies for our mud kitchen and were very sensible about this sharp tool. These skills are going to be key to help you next week to create your own outdoor Christmas tree.
It was lovely to welcome our new nursery friends on Tuesday morning to their "Stay and Play" session, we are looking forward to having all of you with us in the New Year.
Next week we will start practising and choosing some of our favourite songs, dances and action songs to share with you, our "audience", at our very own Nursery Christmas show. This will be on the last day of term, Friday 20th December, at 2.30pm in the school hall. If your child does not attend on this day and you want them to take part, please drop them at the cabin at 2.00pm and head on to the hall. Everyone is welcome to come and have a hot drink and mince pie - the more the merrier!
Have a lovely weekend
Mrs Mander, Mrs Allen, Mrs Franklin, Mrs Lewis, Mrs Barrett and Mrs Flynn
