Stick Man

Friday 08 December 2023

Nursery is beginning to look very festive! This week, we enjoyed listening to Stick Man by Julia Donaldson and children loved the new ‘elf wrapping station’ in the Sunshine Room.  We made presents and added them to Santa’s sack and then we worked together to build a sleigh in the construction area.

In the home corner, children enjoyed decorating the Christmas tree and re-creating some experiences from home.

We’ve made Christmas cards and have practised our cutting skills in the creative area as we looked through toy catalogues for toys that we might like to ask Father Christmas to bring us. We also have started to make some props for our show. Can you guess what we’re painting red?

Outside, children loved decorating the trees with baubles and tinsel and making patterns in the sand.

Next week’s learning: 

We’ll continue with our Christmas themed learning and will find out about the Nativity story.

In maths, we continue to learn about length so will be using the words long, short, longer and shorter to compare different objects.

Nursery rhyme of the week – We’ll be busy learning songs for our Christmas show, ‘Santa’s Hat’ so please keep singing your favourite rhymes together at home.
