This week the children have been wrapping Christmas 'presents' (boxes, tubes and old containers) in an open ended activity. They have absolutely loved working together to cut sellotape, paper, and place their presents under our tree. I'm sure you'll agree, the result is…
Some of the Ducklings have enjoyed playing football today!
Our cheeky elf and his adventures have certainly inspired us all to do some writing about it!
Look where we found our cheeky elf today! He was with our nativity characters, holding baby Jesus!
Whatever will he get up to tonight?
This week our elf has been up to some very naughty tricks. The children have loved seeing what he's been up to through the night and writing about his antics.
We have been investigating how to get the light above the stable in Bethlehem to light up. We created simple electrical circuits using wires, bulbs, batteries and crocodile clips.
The Ducklings and Little Chicks performed their dress rehearsal this morning and their first performance this afternoon for their families! They were amazing! We are so proud of their confidence and the children have loved performing for you all.
You are in for a treat if you haven't been to…
The Ducklings have enjoyed creating Christmas crafts out of twigs for the Christmas fair. They were really careful using the saw and the glue gun. They were very popular and sold well.
Counting objects 1:1 accurately and matching to the correct numeral.
Our Duckling Elf Run was a huge success! The children loved getting involved and running the course for charity. Some children raised as much as £80! Well done, Ducklings.
Today we had a visit from Eve's Auntie Rose all the way from Alice Springs in Australia. The children learned about animals, seasonal differences and Christmas time in Austraila. They also learned an action song and listened to a story.
The Ducklings and Little Chicks have had great fun making Christmas decorations by dipping conkers in paint and then glitter.
