The children were very excited on their arrival to Pre-School on Monday to share with us the fun they had in the snow on Sunday. Unfortunately, due to the weather and after carrying out a risk assessment, we decided that the pavements were too icy for us to walk down to watch Langham Primary School’s Nativity Rehearsal.
We did however, manage to venture outside. So with wet-suits, coats, hats, scarves, gloves and boots on the children enjoyed playing outside in the snow making snowballs, snowmen, snow angels and comparing the different prints they had made in the snow.
The children have been able to notice the changes in the weather over the week and lots of lovely language was explored such as ‘snow’, ‘icy’, ‘frozen’, ‘dripping’, ‘melting’, ‘winter’ and ‘cold’.
The children have continued to enjoy the festive music, singing and dancing and lots of Christmas Stories have been shared with the children.
On Friday we held our Children’s Christmas Party with lots of fun and games including musical chairs, musical statues and pass the parcel. We welcomed one of our grandparents Graham who played some festive tunes on his guitar for the children to sing and dance to. The children also enjoyed some party food. To finish off the party we had a special visitor who had taken time some out of his busy schedule to deliver a present to all of the children. And out of the mouths of one child ‘Is the big man visiting?’.
Thank you for sharing your adventures with us on your child’s Tapestry page. Please continue to share your memories made.
Finally we would like to thank you all for the Christmas Cards and gifts that we have received. We would like to wish all of our families a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and hope you all have a happy healthy holiday. We look forward to welcoming you all back to Pre-School on Monday 8th January 2018.
In the meantime, why not take a look at our advert in the Dedham Parish Magazine.
