reigate weekly memo

Babies

We have been joining with Pre-tods to practise our Christmas Songs. We have liked exploring the sand with different materials and tools, to look  at the textures. We have started to be creative making Christmas hand prints. This week we have welcomed new friends who have loved joining in with our music lesson and exploring the sensory room, looking at the different lights and textures.

Next week: We will continue practising our Christmas songs, and getting messy while completing painting activities ready for our Christmas displays. We will be cooking with pre-tods and looking at the different textures around the room.

Bunnies (Pre-Tods)

This week we have started to get into the Christmas spirit by practising out Christmas Carol songs, although we still need more practise!! We have been getting messy making our Christmas displays and starting with our advent calendar, using paints, different materials to make reindeers, stockings and our safe fireplace.  We have also cooked lemon muffins to look at the ingredients used.

Next week: We will be exploring winter and what we can do this time of year. We will make snowflakes, Santa’s with paint and glitter. We will finish of our winter board and practising our Christmas songs so it’s perfect.

Pre-School

This week we have been getting very messy making candy cane pictures using our finger prints, making our very own snowman out of paper Mache. Continuing with our Christmas trees using our whole hands. Also to get it the Christmas spirit the children have started to write their letters to Santa.

Next week: We will be continuing with our Christmas crafts – making cotton bud snowflakes, and making our own grotto in the home corner. We will be making a lot of noise by copying musical patterns, to listen to the different beats.

There is no homework this week, so please practise the Christmas songs for our play.
