Nursery boys and girls celebrate birthdays.
The topic for the children in Nursery this half-term is ‘Celebrations’. Over the past few days, they’ve focused on birthdays and have not only discussed their own birthdays but also the birth of baby Jesus as they excitedly count down the weeks until Christmas.
To tie in with the theme, the children drew the presents they would like to receive on their special days and they used their Maths knowledge to compare different presents by weight and size. The pupils loved making little cupcakes from clay, too, painting their models in bright blue and purple colours and topping them with a birthday candle, ready to take home.
The new Celebration display in the classroom is serving as a constant reminder of the ongoing topic.
