The children were learning about how St Nicholas Day is celebrated on 6th December in lots of European countries by laying out a shoe at night and having it filled with toys and sweets in the morning. To help celebrate, the children all took home a chocolate lolly from nursery on Friday.
Busy, busy week with decorations being made, singing practise and the children helping to make a Christmas Cake!
This week the children were very excited at the arrival of the Christmas trees. I think you’ll agree, they made a great job of decorating.
This week has been Nursery Rhyme Week in nursery and the children have been singing, making puppets and even baking nursery rhyme cakes. At the end of the week, parents were invited into nursery for a nursery rhyme quiz and to hear the children singing. All the children also received a lovely nursery rhyme picture book.
The aim of the week was to stress to parents , the importance of Nursery Rhymes in the language development of their child.
How much fun can be had with some corn flour and water as the children enjoyed experimenting with the “Gluck”!
This week, for a little change, we learned some Tai Chi movements to relax everyone after lunch. The music was very calming and the children responded well with everyone willing to give it a try.
Some of the children have been making puppets this week and enjoying acting out stories with them. Great imagination and expressive language.
