Morning tea- Fruit, raisin bread and homemade jam

Morning group –
We started with our morning routine:
• Good morning song
• Days of the week
• Counting and number recognition
• Christmas songs
We then practised to our Christmas concert songs. The first time we listened to it carefully and for the second time, we all stood up sang along with it and came up with some actions to go with the song. Miss Sana then asked our friends to sing a big Happy Birthday to Warren!
We then read Hendrix’s book to finish off group time before playing.

Before lunch, the children listened to Liam and Lola’s books. Thanks for sharing! We then all made our beds before sitting at the table ready for lunch!
