Over the last few weeks the children have been thinking about celebrations that they have with their families. The children talked about how looking and listening to fireworks makes them feel and how they can keep safe at such a dangerous time of year. All of the children shared their experiences with each other, talking about the traditions they have at Bonfire Night with their families.
As Christmas approached the children listened to the story of the First Christmas and thought about how Mary and Joseph must have felt on their long journey to Bethlehem. The children thought about how they celebrate Christmas with their families and what special times they had already enjoyed as they prepared for it at home.
The children chose their own bauble to decorate the class Christmas tree in Nursery and proudly stood in front of it for a photograph in their Nativity costumes as they got ready to perform to their grown ups.
