For yoga this week we made shapes with our bodies, which decorations can you be? A rag doll, orange ribbon, crab apples, cat's collar for the lights. There was lots of stretching and bending - oh don't forget the singing of our Christmas songs.
The children have been busy finishing their surprise Christmas crafts. The children have loved doing these. We have done some sensory craft to bring home this year which the children all done independently, choosing their materials and making their own creations. We tried to involve most senses, touch, smell, and sight - hope you enjoy them!
We have been very busy practising our nativity and we have managed a dress rehearsal and performed in front of Stanton Drew Primary school. The children really enjoyed this practice and interacted very well with the older children and teachers. We were really proud of them all.
Some children showed an interest in throwing and catching the soft ball so we set up a plastic box as a target and the children practiced throwing to get the ball into the box. The children encouraged each other when it wasn't their turn and showed delight when another child scored a goal. Excellent team work - well done.
On Thursday afternoon, we enjoyed a party in our outside area. We had a fire in our new fire pit and talked about staying safe near fire. We then warmed some juice on the fire and enjoyed some Christmas chocolates after having a hunt for them. We then played some party games which all the children and staff really enjoyed.
We hope you all had fun at our nativity. The children were amazing, they performed brilliantly and it was surprising to see the confidence in such young children to stand on a stage in front of an audience. A big thank you to all that attended. We had lots of fun at the after party with plenty of food and games organised by Kelly.
