It’s been another bust week to bring us to the end of term. The children loved buying gifts in the Secrets Room and we had an exciting visit from Father Christmas on Wednesday and luckily all our children have been extremely good this year, so they were all very lucky to receive a gift! Last, but not least, Isaac had a birthday and shared a fantastic Thomas cake with his friends.

This week we have been rehearsing for our Nativity play and finally Friday arrived and the children were so excited to put on their costumes and perform.

The recording will be available soon.
We also had ‘Watch Dance Week’ which was great fun and the children loved showing their parents their dance routines.

We have also continued with our autumn theme by making trees with our arm prints and then leaf printing to add colourful leaves to our trees.
We prepared for our Harvest Festival by making soda bread hedgehogs which was sticky but great fun! We then enjoyed our beautiful Harvest Festival Service on Thursday and we welcomed lots of grandparents who enjoyed looking around our classrooms to see what we have been doing so far this term.

We have had an action packed week in Nursery and Kindergarten, with cooking sessions with Chef Bear where we made salmon pate and we also filled the Pre-Prep with delicious smells when we baked bread.
We have made the most of the lovely sunshine by getting outside as much as possible. We went on a walk in our grounds and looked at all the spectacular autumn leaves on the trees and then we turned our thoughts to next spring by planting daffodil bulbs in our garden. When we got back in the classroom we painted beautiful pictures inspired by our autumn walk, using our hand prints as leaves.
Last, but definitely not least, Lawrence had a birthday!
