At welcome time this morning we did our welcome song, then we were going over the days of the week and what month it is now. The children are getting very excited about Christmas now. Phoebe had brought in an Elf called Crinkle holly bottom with whom we played a game of hide and seek.
Today for messy play we had a Christmas sensory activity which the children enjoyed. Some of the children were painting large cardboard boxes as our back drop for the nativity play. Others were doing activities with Miss Wallace and Mrs Brown.
Miss Wallace was doing number books working on the childrens recognition of numbers. Mrs Brown was working on placing lego bricks around the shape of the first letter of our name. They discussed whether their letters were curly or straight. Daniel commented that his sister Hannah's name started with the same as Hugh when Hugh was doing his.
At group time the children did the nursery's advent calendar. All the children will have a turn at opening a day. They then rehearsed their nativity. At goodbye time they had the story 'Shhh Santa' which Evan brought in.
