We have had a wonderful and busy week we have had exploring lots of different activities around National Days and the children’s interest.
The children have had fun being festive this week ready for when Father Christmas comes to visit!! We have had ‘Santa List Day’, all the children got to write their letters to Father Christmas to tell him what they would like for Christmas and if they have been good girl/boy this year. The children also got to send them in the post to make sure he gets them. We have also had ‘Visit to Lapland’ all the children got to use their imitation skills and pretend that they were at Lapland with Father Christmas, helping him and the elves make toys for everyone!! And lastly we have ‘Christmas Jumper Day’ all the children got to come into nursery in their festive outfits. We have Christmas party dress, Christmas jumpers as well as Christmas pyjamas. The children also got to design their very own Christmas jumper too.
Its Christmas jumper day both the babies and children have enjoyed wearing their jumpers. Come and take a look at all the different jumpers we have had.🎄👶👦👧.The babies enjoyed going down to the messy room were they enjoyed chalking on the chalk board and playing with the play dough. With the play dough they enjoyed using a Santa hat cutter to make Santa hats.🎄🧢We have had a super good day today!
