Counting down to Christmas.

Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree...........
Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree...........

On the lead up to Christmas some of the children went to choose  Christmas trees at Strawberry Corner Garden Centre before bringing them back to nursery to decorate. The children have been hearing the Christmas story and have been able to dress up as all of the characters. This week we are writing to Santa to invite him to our parties. We are hoping he can come – we know he is very busy at this time of year! We have also been learning a selection of Christmas Carols and songs to sing at our Carol and cake service at the church. Some of the children will be visiting Levenhall Nursing Home and singing there. Everyone is getting very, very excited!

Congratulations! Two of our children’s paintings have been highly commended in a recent art competition at the Sick Kids Hospital. Both children collected their prizes at an award ceremony held at the hospital. Their paintings will be on display in Ward  7 for the next year. Well done to them both.

Bookstart treasure chests………..

On Friday 6th November Elspeth Pandit, Bookstart Coordinator, visited us to give out  Treasure Chests to all the ante pre school children. Hamish the bear was there to help her. The children had prepared for their visit by making pirate hats and learning some pirate songs and rhymes. Before getting their chests, Elspeth read the chidren a pirate story. Parents were invited to the event and lots of them joined us for the fun.

Hallowe’en…….

[rockyou154590953] On the Thursday and Friday of Hallowe’en we invited parents and carers to join us for  fun days. We enjoyed carving pumpkin lanterns, making chocolate snakes nests, Hallowe’en gluings and we shared a delicious snack of witches fingers and monster eyeballs! There was also lots of fun dooking and catching coconut rings on a string – no hands allowed. The children listened to a spooky story before singing scary songs to the adults. Great fun for everyone.
