The morning class have been exploring different festive activities this week including making reindeer stables out of junk modelling materials and writing their own letters to Santa. The children showed excellent control using scissors to cut pictures out of magazines, they then used these pictures to make a Christmas list. During PE this week, the children all engaged in different obstacle courses. From crawling through tunnels, to balancing on benches to jumping from different heights. They even attempted to climb a gymnastics ladder table.
The afternoon class have also been engaging in different festive activities including making Santa’s sleigh out of junk modelling materials and using festive food magazines to design their own Christmas dinner. They have also shown a lot of interest in emptying and filling this week so we poured lentils and rice onto a table with our measuring beakers. Some of the children even compared the amounts in each of their beakers.
