December 2020

We’ve had lots of Christmas and winter fun!

We were polar explorers and found lots of animals…. We had lots of snowy fun and the playgroup ended up looking like the north pole with all the pretend snow.

 

We had lots of fun making a handprint christmas tree, we made lots of sparkly baubles and also attached some real christmas lights

 

Continuing the christmas tree theme we had a tuff tray tree decorating activity too, we used pom poms, sparkly pipe cleaners, bows and some of our loose parts to decorate the trees

 

As we had so much fun with the polar themed tray we had a different one today where we had to try and find all of the penguins. Can you see any little penguin beaks poking out of the snow?

 

We had lots of different Christmas activities to have a go at throughout December
Bead threading candy canes – for our christmas trees, this helped our fine motor skills, it took lots of concentration to thread the beads onto the pipe cleaners

 

We also made some special biodegradable reindeer food for Rudolph and his friends using bird seed, oats and edible sprinkles

 

We made some salt dough gingerbread people, it was lots of fun weighing the ingredients, mixing and rolling the dough out and then cutting out the gingerbread people

 

We also made some spiral christmas trees that we covered with paint and glitter….. we ended up with glitter everywhere☺🎄

Our Christmas crafts

 

As usual our term ended with our nativity play, this year because of Covid we couldn’t invite parents in to watch our play at the playhouse so the staff and committee worked together to make a lovely keepsake DVD/download. We had lots of fun dressing up in lots of costumes and learning the nativity story. We also learnt lots of fun Christmas songs…. we all loved the Christmas pudding song and when santa got stuck up the chimney!
Our last day together before the holidays was our party day, we had lots of fun playing traditional party games, dancing and we even had a special visit from the big man himself!

What a great finish to the term!
