Away in a manger!

This week we travel to Bethlehem as we explore the Nativity story.

We will be exploring lots of descriptive language as we describe scenes on cards and patterns on wrapping paper. We’ll also be testing our memory on a story quiz.

Whilst in maths we will be learning all about coins. As we learn which is which and also match the right amount of coins to price tags. We will also be doing coin rubbings and enjoying a coin game called money bugs.

We will also be using this time to reflect on Christmas traditions and people less fortunate.

In our creative activities this week we will acting out the Nativity story and learning a Christmas cracker dance. We will also be singing some Christmas songs that the children have not yet learnt!

We will also be getting active exploring ways to move as though we were in a bauble!… which we are sure will leave the children in lots of giggles. We will also be practising our ball skills throwing and catching.

Amongst all this fun we will also be making some reindeer food ahead of the big day plus working together to find ways to make a manger for the baby

Wow, what a week we can’t wait to get started!
