Twinkle, Twinkle, Christmas Star

Twinkle, twinkle Christmas star,

How I wonder what you are,

Up above the world so high,

Like a diamond in the sky,

Twinkle, twinkle Christmas star,

How I wonder what you are.

Sing X2

 

Christmas Pudding

(to the tune of Frere Jacques)

Christmas pudding, Christmas pudding.

Steaming hot, steaming hot,

Sprinkle on some sugar, sprinkle on some sugar,

Eat the lot, eat the lot.

Sing X3

 

When Santa got stuck up the chimney…

When Santa got stuck up the chimney, he began to shout,

You girls and boys won’t get any toys, if you don’t pull me out!

My beard is black, there’s soot in my sack,

My nose is tickling too,

When Santa got stuck up the chimney,

Atchoo, atchoo, atchoo!

 

Snowflake, Snowflake.

Snowflake, snowflake, we love snowflake

We love snowflake falling from the sky

Snowflake, snowflake, we love snowflake

Falling, falling, falling, falling, falling, falling, falling, falling, falling,

Falling on my head.

Snowflake, snowflake, we love snowflake

We love snowflake falling from the sky

Snowflake, snowflake, we love snowflake

Falling, falling, falling, falling, falling, falling, falling, falling, falling,

Falling on my nose.

Snowflake, snowflake, we love snowflake

We love snowflake falling from the sky

Snowflake, snowflake, we love snowflake

Falling, falling, falling, falling, falling, falling, falling, falling, falling,

Falling in my hand.

Falling on my head,

Falling on my nose,

Falling in my hand.

Snowflake, snowflake, we love snowflake.

Our Gruffalo walk 👣🍂🐻

Today the children got all wrapped up in there coats and hats ready to go on a Gruffalo walk, Along the way children had to find the characters out of the Gruffalo story. The children really enjoyed there walk and were super excited when they found all the animals that had been hiding amongst the outdoor area.

Gruffalo printing 🎨 👣🖐

Our babies have had lots of fun creating their own Gruffalo pictures. We used green and brown paints to create a Gruffalo theme and used different tools such as rollers, brushes and dabbers. We really enjoyed having our feet and hands painted and walking along the paper to create feet and hand marks.

Take a look at our pictures..

Footprints 👣

We’ve had so much fun this afternoon making marks with our hands and feet. We decided to get out lots of different coloured paints and make lots of lovely patterns. Harry decided he wanted to paint his own feet and did such a good job. Amelia and seth enjoyed having a little conversation whilst they used the paint brushes with such good control. Alexandra created a line of handprints independently, been very careful to keep such a neat line. A lovely afternoon.

Little Assistants

Clare’s little assistants today are Holly and Ollie.

Holly and Ollie were chosen to be Clare’s Assistants today because they always do good sitting at lunch time and try all their foods, the children will be helping to serve the other children if they would like extra lunch, if they need more water and will be helping to clear away all the cups and plates when everyone has finished their meals. Holly and Ollie are also encouraging the younger children to remember to say please and thank you.

I wonder who will be chosen to help tomorrow? 😊

Making gruffalo crumble 🍴🍴

Today we made gruffalo crumble using the recepie from the story, children enjoyed exploring the ingredients and getting involved in the steps of baking. They showed lots of interest watching eyp’s then copying actions themselves and baking together. Their favourite part was tasting the crumble with custard!

It’s the Gruffalo 🌲🌲🌲

This week our book of the week has been the ‘Gruffalo’. What better way to get the children involved by introducing the story sack to them, they have loved listening to the story and watching eyp use the puppets.

They really enjoyed using the puppets themselves to re inact the story and used lots of sounds through their play.
