What a magical morning ðŸĨ°

We just love our job so much, Christmas is so magical through the eyes of children âœĻïļ 😍 âĪïļ

Today we visited Santa's real reindeers, there were so many.

Christmas music was playing as we bought the special reindeer food to feed the reindeers so they can fly on Christmas Eve.

The children giggled with excitement as the reindeer licked the food off their hands ðŸĪĢ

We had the whole paddock to ourselves, we even chased a few chickens 🐔 😂

Once we had finished feeding the reindeers we washed our hands and used hand sanitizer to make sure our hands were clean again

First of all we stopped off at the letter tree to receive our letters from Father Christmas 🎅

The theme was Children in need, in the craft room there was a tuff tray filled with coloured rice, funnels, scoops and cake cases, there was also coloured felt balls and cups and bottles.The children enjoyed filling the bottles with the rice and using the scoops and funnels.

We also made some rainbows 🌈 we used glue and coloured paper to stick onto the rainbow.We talked about the colours.

On the wall was different coloured paper and the children had a sticker sheet each to peel the coloured stickers off and match to the coloured paper.

In the large playroom was the soft shapes, role play kitchen, cars and garages, books and activity toys.

To finish the session off we had some parachute games and some music and movement ðŸŽĩðŸŽķ

Today we did some observational work as we cut open a pumpkin 🎃 The older children gathered around the table as Linda cut open the pumpkin, we talked about sharp knives and that adults must only use them and the children said if they used them they may cut themselves.

The children said there were seeds inside .

We placed the pumpkin on a table with the lid off for the children to scoop out and explore.

The younger children enjoyed touching the inside of the pumpkin and feeling it.

The older children put the seeds into pots and counted them too.

Just before lunch we read a story that one of the children brought in to share with their friends 😀

So frightening now the dark mornings and nights are here .
I always say that schools should allow brighter clothes/coats for Winter so that children are clearly visible.
There is a child in the same place on both pictures, top picture in a bright coloured coat, bottom picture in a dark coat .
