The month of December flew by in class.
My focus for all things Christmas was of course firstly on the nativity story as we retold this through the performance of the Donkey Seller for parents and families. Phew many, many rehearsals, singalongs, learning about an audience and how to perform sometimes for the first time on stage. It all came good in the end though, many proud parents and even more importantly all of the littles had achieved something for themselves whether that was acting, speaking, singing or just focusing through the performance on stage. They were proud and excited to know that lots of hard work had rewarded them.
We also had an advent bag taken home each day by a different little with one of my favourite seasonal stories by a local author and a hastily crocheted matching character. This went well with families and ensured at least one bedtime story during a busy few weeks at home.
We had lots of little nativity scenes and seasonal opportunities in class but definitely took things a bit slower this year as we worked on our nativity performance and the end of a long 9 week term.
It seems so long ago now!
Happy New Year.
