Fantastic Friday!

Welcome back to the last Fantastic Friday of the year! We have been enjoying lots of festive fun in the nursery in the run up to the Christmas holidays! We have been singing and dancing to lovely winter music and have mastered all the Christmas songs! We made some magic reindeer food to leave out for Santa and helped make some more fragrant snow dough. We have been very busy in the art area; making sparkly Christmas trees, painting lovely penguins and colourful stockings. We enjoyed a special tasty Christmas lunch on Wednesday and got some presents from our catering team! Our Christmas party on Thursday was lots of fun; we played musical statues, musical bumps, the corner game, a Christmas listening game, did lots of brilliant dancing, enjoyed a delicious party snack and even got some presents from Santa!

We hope you have a fantastic holiday, a Merry Christmas if you celebrate and a very happy new year! Please post some pictures of the fun you have at home on the Learning Journals! We look forward to seeing you all again on January 6th!

Fantastic Friday!

This week in the nursery we are still exploring light and dark and have started to discuss winter. We have been mixing different colours of paint to see what different light and dark shades we can create. We have also made spotlight shadow pictures, recycled models of our houses with lit up windows and bright lamp light pastel pictures. Some of us enjoyed making their own story books at the writing table, coming up with their own plots and illustrating their ideas. 
We made more snow dough to play with which made the nursery smell lovely. We helped to make some yummy pancakes and decorated some delicious “space biscuits” for snack. Now that the weather has turned Wintery, we have been discussing how to keep ourselves warm with hats, gloves, scarves, hot food and drinks. We have started to practice Christmas songs for our Christmas party – we have particularly enjoyed Feliz Navidad! We will send home a leaflet with the lyrics of our Christmas songs and would really appreciate it if you practiced these at home with your child.

Please continue to post your lovely pictures of all the fun you have at home on the Learning Journals. The newsletter will be sent out shortly and will have all the dates of our upcoming Christmas activities. We hope you have a great weekend and look forward to seeing you on Monday!
