Yesterday the children payed a visit to the church prayer garden, not only to say a little prayer but to raid the garden for evergreens to make our Advent wreath today. The children were very creative and we now have a beautiful Advent wreath to put on our prayer table and we also lit our first Advent candle today.
Our next three weeks are going to be very busy and we have a lot to cram in. Father Paul is coming to visit us on Monday to meet the children and to talk about his work and how he cares for us and the community. On Wednesday we will be introducing our class Advent calendar as well as using our Advent wreath as a focus. We will be finishing off our seasons calendars which you will recieve at Christmas, starting our Christmas cards and each child will be making a Baby Jesus which can be used as a prayer focus at home. Our phoneme for next week is ‘i’ and our Nursery rhyme will be ‘The Grand Old Duke of York’.
This week we are going to be learning Christmas songs because on Thursday 16th December we will be going over to church with Reception class to sing songs to The Dementia Group. Nursery would also like to present the group with a basket of goodies for Christmas so we are asking if each child could donate some chocolate/biscuits for them – this would be very much appreciated. Take care and keep warm this weekend!
