The first week back in January will be “Dinosaur Week.” This is based on children’s interests, as lots of children asked for dinosaurs on their letters to Santa. We shall be learning all about when dinosaurs lived, what they looked like and what they ate. We will be using Non-Fiction books to find this information. Non-Fiction books give you information/facts. We would encourage you to use the local library or the internet to research dinosaurs with your child. Bring in anything you find, so that we can add it to your child’s learning journal.
Children had a wonderful time at our Christmas Celebration today. We enjoyed eating festive food, dancing with our friends, singing Christmas songs and we even had a very special visitor…Santa!!
We would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy, safe Christmas holiday, and we look forward to working with you in 2014.
Children have been working very hard throughout our ‘Creative Christmas’ week. Children have been challenging themselves to create Baubles for their christmas tree, building a stable for baby Jesus, buying presents for their friends in the role play shop, making christmas cards, writing gift tags and much more.
Next week we shall be having a: “Creative Christmas” week. Children will be encouraged to independently create their own christmas cards/calendars etc. Children can self access everything in the creative area, and are encouraged to think about what they want to do before they begin their wonderful creations. It would be lovely for you to continue this creative work at home. This video is just one idea of how you can create wonderful christmas decorations with your child.
