The McDougalls Christmas Party

The children have all been enjoying watching the ‘McDougalls Christmas Party’. There has been lots of dancing, singing and laughing! The children particularly found the jokes from the Christmas crackers funny!!

‘What did one snowman say to another snowman?’
‘I smell carrots!’

’What did Santa’s little helper learn at school?’
’The elfabet!’

This certainly got us into the Christmas spirit!! We saw a cheeky elf, Santa and a Christmas fairy visiting the McDougalls. We had great fun doing the Hokey Cokey. It’s a big thumbs up for the pantomime from the children at Cart Mill.

Polar Express

The children had been discussing different festive movies they have been watching at home.

A favourite was Polar Express, this led to the children deciding they wanted their own Polar Express in Cart Mill.

The children selected boxes and wanted to decorate them. They used various media and techniques that were available throughout the studio to design and decorate the train.

 

The children used the various boxes and discussed size and placement as they put it together.

Once they were happy they all jumped inside and  took a magical trip in the Polar Express and used lots of expressive language and actions.

“sparkling snow”

“shouts of ho ho ho “

 

It was great to see the children all working collaboratively, sharing resources and experiencing festive joy.

I wonder what the children will create next ?
