Over the past two weeks we have been having lots of fun celebrating Christmas!! We were very busy getting ready for the Early Years Nativity, we hope that you were able to make it and that you enjoyed watching it. The children sat and sang so well and the costumes were fantasic!! Thank you all for your time, money and creativity.
Our main focus was to understand the real reason we celebrate Christmas, IT’S JESUS’S BIRTHDAY!!!!. We were able to demonstate this with our Christmas cards. We printed a Christmas tree on the front and then inside, baby Jesus in his crib in the hay. Please take this off the card and hang on your Christmas tree year after year.
We were also busy making angel calendars, salt dough decorations with gift boxes and talking about the First Christmas using our Nativity wheels. We also enjoyed a great Christmas party and the food lasted a couple of days!!
After Christmas we are going to looking at different forms of transport. We will be looking at all modes of transport and then talking about them in more detail as the term goes on. Over the holidays if you could talk to the children about different modes of transport that you have travelled on and maybe share this with us in your homework books, photos would be great!
We would like to thank you all for you genorous gifts and cards and hope that you all have a joyful Christmas and we look forward to seeing you in the new year.
Thank you for all your support in 2017!!
