We had a fabulous Christmas Party on Wednesday shared with parents. It was a magical morning spent with Santa who arrived in a Fire Engine because there was nowhere to land his sleigh!
Big thanks to the Sumburgh Local Authority Fire Brigade for rescuing Santa from a field and bring him to our party and big thanks to Santa for travelling so far to come and visit us. The bairns thoroughly enjoyed chatting with Santa and finding out all about his reindeers and elves.
We loved playing all the party games……
….but the highlight was definitely our Gingerbread House building competition! Great to have so many parents and family involved and who better to judge the winner for best Gingerbread House, than SANTA himself!
Just look at the amazing creations that were made by everyone…all the bairns did a fab job and good to see some healthy competitiveness from the parents!
Hoooray to Santa’s winners…Sophie, Bronagh, Isla, Callum and Willum!
Snack time to recharge our energy…
Thank you for coming everyone and making it a special day for all.
Wir bairns were absolute stars at their Christmas Concert! What an amazing achievement to stand on stage and perform in front of such a big audience.
The bairns chose their own words to the tune of “Ten Little Elves”, to create their own version of a Christmas song. They thoroughly enjoyed the process and the confidence gained from having ownership of their own song, was clear to be seen from the amazing participation, singing and happy faces with which they performed ….and of course the fact that they are all still singing it a week later!
We are all so proud of every one of them. Here’s a snap shot of their performances…..
It’s fair to say the Christmas frenzy has hit us! What an exciting and busy time we’ve had.
For our advent calendar this year, we really wanted to emphasize the value of quality time together, rather than just “things”. So we filled our advent calendar with activity and challenges tailored to each individual bairn’s interests. Each bairn has a special activity to do and the opportunity to share it with their friends if the wish. Quality one to one time and time with friends can often be overlooked at such busy times and we’ve all really enjoyed our advent times together so far.
Here’s a sneaky peek at what they’ve been up to…….
Christmassy Water play!
Digging for Christmas treasure!
Build a snowman………
….and knock it over!
Making hot chocolate…
Create a unicorn making craft station!
Frozen dance off and musical statues….
Make your own christmas sand tray…..
