It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Bathgate Early Years Centre……

The boys and girls are practicing all the songs for this year’s Nativity ‘Jesus Christmas Party’.  We have 12 to learn! Hope you are practicing at home too!  It is lots of fun dressing up as Nativity characters and playing in our stable.  Rehearsals are now in full swing and we are looking forward to having our audiences watch us perform.

We have been busy decorating our Christmas tree and making decorations for our Christmas party house, dancing to Christmas music, reading Christmas stories, playing Christmas puzzles/games and playing with Santa and his reindeer in the sparkly sandpits.  We are also working hard in the art area to make a ‘surprise’ to take home to our families at the end of term (ssshhhh).

We are having ‘planning meetings’ to decide on what food, music and games we would like at our end of term Christmas parties.

Next week (Monday 8th December) we will be making our own Christmas cards and the nursery Christmas Post begins for one week.  Please remember to just bring one card for everyone at nursery as we are an Eco School.

Ice Explorers

At the beginning of the week we discovered icy patches on our playground and frost all over the grass as temperatures dropped.  We have been experimenting with water by leaving it in various sized and shaped containers to see if ‘Jack Frost’ will turn it into ice overnight.  We then added paint to water to make rainbow ice.
