It’s starting to feel a lot like Christmas. The decorations are up and the children are well and truly getting involved making Christmas chains, stained window glass and baking Christmas decorations to paint. We made some delicious Christmas crackles using butter, marshmallows and white chocolate! The children made Christmas shortbread with Helen and decorated them with icing the following day...delicious! Eve and Tracey brought in some beautiful Christmas decorations for the tree- it stands in the room beautifully. The children have been talking about Christmas- acknowledging Christmas is celebrated in many different ways all around the world.
Tom took pride in telling his friends his family helps an African boy across the othersider of the world so he has food to eat and shelter. It’s good to ‘help’ people said Tom because ‘not all boys are lucky’ he said. Christmas is about giving and looking after each other- the children recognise it’s not all about presents!
The lady of Lourdes Primary school children came to visit our kinder and sung beautiful Christmas songs. Each year around Christmas the ‘big kids’ walk to kinder and share a morning with us- it’s so nice to see so many familiar faces who also attending the kinder. We have been busy practising for our Christmas concert; we sent the words home so the children can practise before bed time.
The children are excited to enter the next phase of life- and we hope you leave our kinder with fond memories....
Please make sure you take all your child’s belongings on the last day and any art work you might like to take that’s hanging up around the room.
We will miss you all...Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
Amy, Tracey, Helen and Fiona
