23 sleeps, 22 days to Christmas…….
Today we continued with our Christmas activities.
Our first activity was the planting of the gulbiena (Christmas seed). The children first decorated the cup to look very Christmassy, then filled the cup with cotton wool and then placed the gulbiena seeds which we had soaked first thing in the morning. It was very exciting and some children expected the seed to grow miraculously 🙂 We then tried to find a place in the dark, so that our gulbiena grows lovely.
Our second activity was creating decorations for the classroom. Here the children had a lot of patterns to choose from. Everyone was happy creating along using their own imagination. At the end of the session, we had santa clauses, angels, bells, christmas trees, stars and stockings. The classroom looks beautiful with all the things you have created. You will all see it tomorrow.:-)
Today we kicked off the Christmas countdown.
First thing in the morning, we checked what Rudolph left us in the stocking of the 1st day of our Advent Calendar.
We then had fun decorating the Christmas tree, which finished off with a telling of a Secret by Ms Sue. As you can see we are all absorbed in what Ms Sue is telling us.
Later on in the day we started working on some Elves. We made them look like each one of us is going to be during the Christmas concert.
We also had time to start decorating our Classrooms. If you want to prepare some decorations and bring them in to decorate the classroom you are more than welcome.
Have a look at all the FUN we had today with our first day of counting down to Christmas…….
24 sleeps, 23 days to Christmas 🙂
