Christmas is getting closer and our room is looking beautiful with all the children contributing to the room decorations. It certainly is an exciting time – we will wrap our surprises we have made next week, and then we will hide them till Party day. We have a real Christmas Tree which our children have made decorations for. A reminder that our Party is on Thursday 19th at 1.15 p.m. – but we will need the children to arrive at 1.00 p.m to allow us to settle everybody ready to start. We have a drawing of Father Christmas flying across our window – so the children have done drawings of their houses to put underneath so he will know what to look for, also a drawing of Kindergarten.
We enjoyed a visit from the children at Our Lady of Lourdes School children last Tuesday to sing some beautiful Christmas carols for us – it was great to see some familiar faces of children who had been at our Kindergarten last year. We thank them for this experience, it is good to interact with other Schools in the area.
As always the children have been searching for nature things to share with us and learn about. Our Science experiment growing wheat was successful – the children were very excited to see some shoots starting to appear and to grow bigger each day. Our silkworms continue to lay more eggs. We are starting to have cicadas brought for us to see, and a beautiful fragile cicada’s wing. Our science experiment growing beans did not work – but that is what experiments are all about – some work and some don’t.
We are looking forward to our Party on Thursday 19th, and after to sadly say our goodbys. Please if you are able to spend some time helping us to clean up on the Friday we would greatly appreciate that. Have a safe and happy Christmas and holiday.
What will happen next week ?
