The past few weeks have seen the beginning of Christmas fever for the Nursery children!
Staff are busily engaged with children learning lines and new songs to present to their families on the 12th December.
Groups are being held for children to practice and develop their public speaking skills and to enhance their confidence in their abilities. for most this will be the first time that they have ever stood up and spoken in front of their family and other parents - very nerve wracking but they are already so good! Well done!!
We have already spoken with Father Christmas who has promised to come to see the Infants and Montessori children on the 10th December and the Reception children on the 12th December. He has advised me (on the quiet!) that he will be bringing gifts. Plans are underway to convert the staff room into Santa’s Grotto for the morning and I have still yet to find a place for the reindeer!
The kitchen is also busy with preparation for the EYFS Christmas lunch which is being held on the 2nd December. Children will be treated to a complete Christmas meal with Turkey (and vegetarian option) with all the trimmings.
All these events are part of the topic for the term of cultural celebrations. The children have also been treated to a puppet show hosted by the staff where the children were told the story behind Diwali. This was followed by some traditional sweets - always a winner!! We have also explored the history of how fireworks night came to be and I am sure that this has inspired some budding explosive experts!
The children have gained so much knowledge and understanding of the world around them and also the different traditions that are celebrated with in the school community. Their experiences are fun , concrete and very memorable!
