It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas....

Published on Friday 10 December 2021 by Mrs Fox.

We have had such a festive week to get us in the Christmas spirit. Elfie has kept us entertained and has surprised the children each morning with his cheeky antics. He has also left us lots of exciting treats such as a wrapping station, a sleigh and an elf workshop to help Santa make his toys. Elfie must have thought he had earned lots of pom poms for all of his hard work, as he made quite the mess when he pinched them from the children's pots. He also delivered some beautiful Christmas trees, which we have worked very hard to decorate. To celebrate the different nationalities within our Reception community we focused on the countries Syria, Poland and Britain and enjoyed learning how these countries celebrate at Christmas time. We incorporated these traditions into our Christmas decorations and I am sure you will agree the tree looks spectacular!

We have also been working very hard to write our letters to Santa. We were blown away with the children's determination and they did an amazing job segmenting and spelling the words in their letters. The children were thrilled when we got a special delivery in the post all the way from the North Pole. Santa must have been very impressed with the children's work too because he wrote to each and every child in response to their letters.

To end a very exciting week we filmed our Christmas songs. This will be uploaded online very soon so please keep checking the website for this so you can watch a truly spectacular performance. We also had lots of fun wearing our festive Christmas jumpers to complete our Santa Dash. We would like to thank Mrs Thompson for organising this for us it was so much fun completing the different obstacles and we were thrilled to earn a medal when we completed the Dash!
