On Monday the children were very excited to see the Christmas tree in the room. There was lots of touching and smelling as well as talking about where it came from and how it got to Kindergarten. We discussed what can be put on it, tinsel and baubles were added. The children have been very involved in making decorations for you. They are becoming rather excited about singing songs for you and having a party next week let alone Santa coming..........
Thursday was the last day of our Koala Group for 2013. It was a fun day full of laughter and sometimes silliness........... Outdoors there were some children rather involved in the sandpit cooking some amazing meals and others were busy using the red tins and brushes to paint water over seats, walls and trees. More Christmas craft was happening to finish off their gifts to you. Even on our last day we had so many helpers at pack away time. Thank you so much. I think they really like coming into the shed to see what they can find!!!!!!!!! Indoors we discussed what happened at Christmas. Santa gives us presents..... why ...... because we have been good and nice......... how does he give them to you........ he comes down the chimney....what happens if you don’t have a chimney.......... .ummmmmmmm...... a magic key was suggested to the children... This key can open lots and lots of doors....... the children had big smiles on their faces to know that Santa is magical and that he could be coming to their home......... There was also talk about Jesus and how he helped many people. We were also told that he was born on Christmas and that’s why we have a party. What very informed children they are..........?
Party celebrations on Monday 16/12/2013. Children to come into the room at 1.15 and then adults can come into the room at 1.30
Thank you so very much for letting us be a part of your lives.
Wishing you all a very happy and safe holiday season
