It’s Beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

We have started decorating school and our Classroom with the Christmas decorations. Early Years visited John at the garden centre at the back of school to pick the Christmas tree for the hall. When we visited we walked up to the field and could see the tree still growing. John chopped it down for us and delivered it to school and it looks lovely.

We have also been making our own decorations using clay. It was a very different material to work with.

On Tuesday the hall was very different. There was a great big snow globe and Santa visited us in his grotto. Many thanks to everyone who paid money to school to visit the globe and grotto.

This week starts the beginning of advent. Nursery have been marking this by adding little pieces onto Santa’s beard every morning. We are beginning to understand that December is a long month!! And Reception’s advent calendar explores how Christmas is celebrated around the world. So far we have explored, China, Malta, Wales and Norway.

We have been very busy in the hall rehearsing for our nativity play. I won’t blog any spoilers here, but we can’t wait for you to see it next week. We’ve been so busy practising.

And of course, we have played lots outside. We have had a delivery of lots of large cardboard rolls. We played with these outside rolling pine cones down.
