We have been getting ready for Christmas by preparing our own Christmas Eve bag!
We have made our own Magic Reindeer Dust and have made our very own Christmas Cake (for Santa!). We have made sure we did not forget Rudolph by adding a carrot for him in the bag!
Is it shiny?
We've been learning lots more about shiny things. On the way to nursery Olly noticed the moon will still in the sky! This led to lots of discussions about day and night. We remembered about 'stars' and thought that Monty Magpie would like shiny stars for his nest. But how would he reach them? Fly? Go in a rocket? Climb a tall tree? We shared a story 'How to catch a star' about a little boy trying to catch a star.
This has led us to think about night times, space, nocturnal animals and lots more!
We have also taken part in Road Safety Day. We learned how to cross the road safely. STOP, LOOK, LISTEN, THINK!
We looked at safe places to cross.
"At the traffic lights, you press the button and the cars stop." - Autumn
"The zebra crossing." - Caitlyn
"A lollipop person." Zac
We thought about being seen in the dark and reflective clothing. We made our nursery very dark and played with the glow sticks. It was lots of fun and very colourful!
Nursery Rhyme Week
Our challenge was to learn 5 Nursery Rhymes. Some of them we already knew but some were new ones. We practiced each day and held our own Nursery Rhyme Show in our very own 'Little Stars Theatre'.
We all received a certificate for our great work!
