The Nativity and Christmas prep
Sat, 07 Dec 2019 16:19:00 +0000
The children are enjoying exploring the story of Christmas through books; looking at the illustrations and showing an awareness how stories are structured. They have enjoyed setting up the nativity scene identifying the main characters and recalling the narrative of the Christmas story.
The children at both Playschools were taken to the church to see the Playschool Christmas tree beautifully decorated with their handmade decorations. They have produced some lovely snowman and tree Christmas cards for their families by printing with bubble wrap.
The children have showed an interest in kicking hitting and throwing the balls. This child led play has then been extended with the introduction of plastic racquets. Some have shown a keen awareness of controlling the balls direction and have been encouraged to play with each other hitting the ball 'to and fro'. It has been interesting to watch the different methods adopted by the children working out how to propel the ball with the racquet.
The children have exhibited all these characteristics as they've explored the Christmas story. They have develop skills (willing to have a go) through making cards and decorations. being involved in the community project with the URC church Xmas tree festival is important to develop a sense of community(finding out and exploring). This is also seen in the tennis games being played outside (playing with what they know).

CHRISTMAS TREE OH CHRISTMAS TREE !
Sun, 01 Dec 2019 18:30:00 +0000
The children finished off their Christmas decorations which have now been hung in the URC Christmas tree festival which runs for two weeks . Some children so enjoyed the process that they made several. They look great and I'm sure their families will enjoy seeing them at the late night shopping.
The children have been practising their Christmas songs (for our SING SONG Tues 10th 11 am - that all families are invited to) remembering words and actions from memory. Staff have observed children singing the songs and moving rhythmically as they as they sang to themselves whilst listening the CD. The children are developing an understanding of the "Story of Christmas"
The children explored the frosty grass as we headed to forest school, some lovely descriptive language heard as we took a closer look at the frosted leaves and listened to the 'crackly' and 'crunchy' sounds as we walked across the field. One child worked out that the grass was green one side of the field because the sun was shining down on that part and frosty white where it wasn't.
AT Broadway Playschoool; The children were involved in making play dough this week where we added some extra ingredients giving it more of a Christmas theme, we added glitter and mixed spice!
SEE OUR CHRISTMAS TREE AT LATE NIGHT SHOPPING 6 DEC or during the week at URC church !
