This month in Pre-School we have been very busy with all our Christmas preparations. We started December by writing our letters to Father Christmas. We had great fun looking through all the toy catalogues and choosing what we would like – it was very hard to choose. We then began to decorate our classroom. We all painted our hands to make our class Christmas tree and everyone made a bauble to decorate. There was lots of glitter and sparkle. Pre-School were so excited about Christmas and couldn’t wait to see if they got a special visit from the North Pole.
One of Father Christmas’ elves came to see us each day in nursery. His name was ‘Elfie’ and each day he left us a little message. He helped us with our counting and counting the days down till Father Christmas would be here.
We then went on to learn all about The First Christmas and the reasons people celebrate this special occasion. We learnt all about Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus and how he was born in a stable in Bethlehem. In our school nativity play we played the part of the animals in the stable. We practised very hard to learn our song and we had lots of fun learning the actions.
Pre-School had a very busy month in December, they celebrated Christmas dinner with their friends, supported Christmas jumper day for Save the Children and just before they finished they managed to have a little Christmas Party to celebrate. They even got a visit from Father Christmas!
Happy Christmas Everyone!
