Early Years News from Miss Robbins – 07.12.17

This week
We have performed our Christmas concert to an audience three times! Our first was on Monday, our dress rehearsal to the rest of the school and then twice to family and friends. The children looked fantastic in their costumes, remembered their parts well and enjoyed performing. Thank you to all of you who supported us by providing costumes and watching the play, we hope it gave you a little bit of a Christmas sparkle! In the classroom, we have been learning about the traditional tale ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ as it is part of our Christmas play. We made Big Bad Wolf wanted posters and tried to retell the story from memory. We have also learnt about Christmas traditions eg- putting up a Christmas tree and advent calendars. If you have any particular family traditions it would be great if you could share these on Tapestry.
Next week
We will be focusing on Christmas including the story of ‘The First Christmas’ and continuing with Christmas traditions eg – making decorations, writing Christmas cards and Father Christmas filling children’s stockings. We have several events next week to attend as well, including Christmas dinner on Wednesday, a Christmas panto to watch on Thursday afternoon and Friday is Christmas Jumper day and class Christmas party afternoon…phew what a busy week!
