Morning tea- cake with fruits

Morning group –
We started with our morning routine:
• Good morning song
• Days of the week
• Counting and number recognition
• ABC and letter recognition
We then revised our classroom rules which children are becoming very confident at identifying and following them. It was then to practise our Christmas songs for our Christmas concert which will be played as many times as we can during the day for children to become familiar with the words. The group time was finished by reading Lucia’s and Fynlee’s book.

Before lunch, children sang the Christmas songs again and watched a short, animated Christmas video followed by a few yoga poses to help us calm down.

Lunch – chicken noodle with vegetables

There are the raffle tickets in each child’s bag, this is for our Christmas raffle. It can be paid to the reception area.

We are missing a pink labeled fitted and flat sheets which belongs to one of our children. We would really appreciate it if you can look for it around the house as it could be misplaced in one of the children’s bag.
