We have been busy all week decorating our classroom and preparing Santa's Grotto! It has been very exciting. We have made our own Christmas tree decorations.

This week we have been learning about time and the different things we do at different times of the day. We made our own clocks and we can read 0'clock.

We have been learning all about the first Christmas and we have started making our own Christmas Story books. As we are singing our songs for the Nativity we have been talking about the story of Jesus' birth.

Our Nativity songs are sounding very good and some children have brought their costumes to school already. The photograph shows what all the girls will be wearing and parents who are looking for ideas on a visitor costume, we hope the photograph helps!

We are looking forward to performing our Nativity on Thursday 10th December at 2.30pm and 6pm. Please can all children come back for the evening performance at 5.30pm. It will finish at approximately 6.45pm.

We are getting excited about all the things we will be doing next week. We will be learning about pattern and creating our own repeating patterns, will are going to continue to write our Christmas Story books and enjoy Santa's grotto by turning it into Santa's workshop and then the stable where Jesus was born.

We look forward to seeing you all on Thursday. Thank you for your support with providing costumes for our performance.

The children decided that first they would need to find out lots of information about the animals, diet, appearance, habitat and even a couple of extra 'interesting facts'...
