December News

What a rollercoaster December has been, which is why this blog is a little later arriving!  We have been busy making Christmas snowmen, snowflakes, paperchains and all manner of Christmas decorations for the classroom.  We also enjoyed a lovely Christmas celebration day where we made Christmas crowns and had a little snack party with Christmas music!  Mrs Johnson has been amazing too, teaching the children some beautiful Christmas songs which I hope you enjoy watching on our class Advent calendar.

It is such a shame that I can’t invite you in to look around at the moment, it is stunning thanks to all the children’s work and creations.  Hopefully, we can organise a Learning Journey sharing session soon as I realise that some parents and families may be feeling a little disconnected regarding your children’s learning and life in Nursery – watch this space!

Bookmaking and storytelling have been very popular this month.  We plan to build on this skill during the Spring term as we explore traditional tales – the three little pigs is a particular favourite!  Children are very motivated and excited to draw and write their own stories and then retell them at home-time for our story-time. 

Our plans for Spring term involve learning about shape and pattern in our maths lessons, for STEM we will be investigating the Seasons through learning about Winter and Spring, exploring shadow and problem-solving challenges involving cause and effect.

Wishing you a very safe, happy and restful Christmas.  We look forward to welcoming you all back on Monday 11th January,

Warmest wishes

Mrs O. Knappert, Nursery Teacher
