The children in Reception have had a very busy time preparing for Jesus’s birthday. From the time that they performed their star dance at the Infant Nativity until the end of term it was non-stop. All the children helped prepare the classroom for the festivities. They made paper chains; they made a beautiful advent calendar; they painted trees and they all helped to decorate the Christmas tree and were excited to put on the lights. They have enjoyed learning about the Nativity story and writing about it in their folders. They each made a clay bauble, using finger prints to decorate it, as a gift for their families, as well as lots of other decorations. They really enjoyed making jelly to celebrate Jesus’s birthday. They also enjoyed taking part in the school disco with the other children from Key Stage 1. We hope you all had a very Merry Christmas.
