How many weeks until Christmas!!

In Reception this week the children talked about Advent, the days leading up to the festival of Christmas. With the Advent house ready, whose picture will be behind doors 1 and 2 as we open them on Monday and light the Advent candle? The Christmas story was read, watched and the illustrations are fabulous. Look out for them in the infant corridor when you come to watch the Christmas play. Talking of the play rehearsals on the stage have started! A few children still need to find their big playground voice. Try standing them at the top of the stairs, can you hear them in if you are in the kitchen?! Singing is coming along well. Please practise Away in a Manger!

The children have been learning to count 2p coins as we prepare to use our Christmas Grotto and pay to visit Santa next week.

St. Andrew’s Day tomorrow and the children used the Internet to find out more about Scotland and their famous Saint. Eating Scottish shortbread was probably the highlight of the lesson. Happy St. Andrew’s Day for tomorrow!
