Christmas is coming


Throughout the week the children have been engaged in various Christmas decorating activities. The class have been excited to discuss how we are going to decorate our room for Christmas and to offer their ideas of what should be added to the room. Some of the activities have been challenging for the children but they have persevered and persisted until the activity has been completed. The children are proud of the drawings and cutting they have been producing. They look amazing! The decorations and artwork have been hung around the room to celebrate Christmas time. Everyone is welcome to come and admire the children's gorgeous work!
