The festivities have continued this week in Preschool! We’ve had lots of glitter, paint and sparkles as we finished off our creative, festive pictures and cards. Transition children learnt all about the Nativity story through and coloured in Nativity pictures. Some children even had a go at labelling their pictures, with support to sound out each name. The children have also enjoyed making Santa Hats with Oreos Strawberries for a Christmas snack. There has been plenty of festive singing this week as children have asked to sing their Christmas favourites (‘Jingle Bells’ has been very popular!)
The run up to Christmas is always so exciting and magical with little ones and it has been wonderful to share this special time with the children. We’re sure you’ll agree that last week’s ‘Winter Wonderland’ show was fabulous and showed how far the children have come this term. They all did so well to perform in front of an audience and we are extremely proud of them all, as we’re sure you are too. On Tuesday, the children were delighted to visit Dobbies Winter Wonderland. The expressions on their faces as they walked through the different scenes spoke volumes. Many of the children related the Winter animals to their school production and developed their vocabulary using descriptive language as they walked around the grotto. A babychino and a Christmas biscuit was a perfect end to the trip.
We would like to wish all the children and their families a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
We have had a very busy, productive and enjoyable term in Preschool and we look forward to next term! Thank you all for your continued support this term and for the generous gifts. We wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy new year.
