We're dreaming of a white Christmas...

Over the last 2 weeks Bumblebees have started getting ready for Christmas. It all began with the Stick Man story...




"Stick Man lived in a family tree with his Stick Lady Love and his Stick Children three..."
As part of the story, the children learned about different seasons and observed the weather in the small world area change, too!


They had a lot of fun counting sticks...


...and using sticks to make a snowman.



Bumblebees made their own Stick Men, too!


Our role play also changed, becoming bright and festive.


The children in each session decorated the Christmas tree...


...wrote Christmas cards...


...and pegged them on a string.


Once the Christmas stockings were up, they inspected the numbers on the stocking to ensure all the numbers to 10 were there!


And of course, Christmas is not complete without the Nativity story...




We talked about Advent and have been rehearsing for our own Christmas show but you'll have to wait till our performance...

Here are some of the other activities we've done:











The week finished with an event we have been looking forward to - the trip to the post box to post our Santa letters. A HUGE 'thank you' to all the parents for your support in making the trip possible!

People who help us

This week we have been learning about people who help us.

We began the week by thinking about people who help us in our school and then went on to learn about the different jobs people do.

We enjoyed role playing police officers, making handcuffs and arresting each other.




We also had fun lining each other up and counting our fellow police officers.



Karen showed us just how to do it!


We received calls from the public and made 'Wanted' posters to try and catch the thieves.



Outside, we thought about the job of builders and did some building ourselves...



As the week went on we learned about the jobs of doctors and vets...







We made medicine...




...and even had a go at creating our own x-rays!




We  finished the week by learning how to be friends and look after each other.
