We had a visit from Santa!!! He brought all children in nursery a gift and handed them out with a little help from Big Megan the elf!!! We all sang him a few songs to thank him for taking time out of his busy schedule to visit us!!!
We did lots of exciting activities all week to celebrate Diwali. We chalked rangoli patterns on the floor, made lanterns, learnt about mehndi patterns and drew around our own hands to decorate them. We also read lots of stories and watched the ‘Rama and Sita’ story on the big screen. The babies decorated a pine cone with glitter to take home as a Diwali gift.
We spent the 2 weeks in the run up to Bonfire night doing lots of risky play activities. We used potato peelers to stick whittle, hammered into logs and pumpkins, used hand drills, used saws, started a fire using fire flints, melted crayons over a flame to decorate a pumpkin……………..before cooking our lunch (jacket potatoes with James’ chilli) on the firepit. Sian also used a special pan to make us some popcorn.
Today we celebrated our school leavers with a party just for them. It was an opportunity for them to say one last goodbye to their friends before they embark on their school journey. It was also a chance for their parents to chat about their own thoughts on the move to school, and munch on cake!!! We dance, played, danced, ate lots of yummy food, used props for selfies and really celebrated our time as a Jolly Giraffe.
