Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

I'm going to let my little light shine!

This week has been very exciting in Nursery, it's nearly Christmas!

We have learnt about the birth of Jesus and shared our Nativity with our parents; we have engaged in lots of craft activities and made Christingles. We also had a visit from Father Christmas and have done lots of singing. We are counting down the days and there isn't long to go! 

We have been singing about Santa's reindeers, we counted up to nine reindeers!
Can you remember the name of the reindeer that has a red nose?
We are getting ready for our Christmas dinner next week by make our own party hat, we helped each other to design how we wanted our hats to look.
"I'm going to put the sticker there."
We have been designing our own Nativity scenes. We are able to re-tell the story of Jesus's birth.
What did the wise men follow to Bethlehem?
We each have a favourite character.
The angels were particularly popular characters as they could fly! 
Which animal did Mary ride to Bethlehem?
We invited our parents in to make Christingles with us.
Before we began we reminded ourselves of the reason as to why Christmas is important and what each element of the Christingle represents.
What does the orange represent?


We added the four sticks, to represent the four seasons.
Summer, Autumn, Winter and ______?
What season is missing?
After that we added raisins and sweets to represent the fruits that grow in each of the seasons. 


We then used our Christingles to colour our pictures in the correct colours.
Don't forget to let your light shine out to others as you light your Christingle candle that represents the light of God.
