This week the children have had their dress rehearsal, and are looking forward to the real thing on Wednesday and Thursday. They have heard the story of Jesus’ birth from the Bible, and have had fun retelling it in their own words.
The children were very excited to strut their stuff in the dress rehearsal, clad in their fancy outfits. They particularly like the camel outfits! We can’t wait to enjoy their performances, and we highly recommend you bring tissues – although whether you are likely to cry from pride or laughter remains to be seen!
In the classroom we are still exploring winter wonderlands, and there is a strong science ‘flavour’ to our choosing our own learning times. There are glittery, coloured ice cubes in the water, carrots frozen in ice cubes that we are trying to melt, tyre-track making in ‘snow’ and the delights of air-drying salt-dough. The elf workshop has been very popular, and the children are very busy in there. Today one of the children was busy making lists for Santa, writing what everyone wanted, and she made sure the grown-ups put down their wishes, too!
Our story of the week is ‘The Christmas Carrot’, and in Maths we are recognising numbers, counting carefully (without losing track!) and writing numbers.
What a busy and exciting week!
