01.12.17 The beginning of Advent

We have had a very exciting week this week. We continued our learning about the Gingerbread Man story and helped to design extra enhancements to go in to our role play area. We were weighing and measuring the ingredients and retelling the story using props.
I'm sure you'll agree our representations of owls look amazing on the wall! Well done everyone.
Friday saw the beginning of Advent and we learnt about the Christian beliefs surrounding Advent. We have our own Advent boxes in the classroom which we were keen to explore. We opened parcel number 1 and the children were excited to see what was inside. Each box contains a different symbol associated to Christmas.
Following this, it was our first performance of our Nativity play 'Whoops- a- Daisy- Angel'. The children all did amazingly well and I'm sure those of you that came to watch thought so too. We are all very proud of them. Those of you that haven't seen it yet and are coming to Monday's performance - you are in for a real treat!
