Friday was great fun, as we all joined in with a very frantic wake up shake up to the 12 days of Christmas! After this, the conveyor belt of Christmas crafts continued - NEXT!! (the only time of the year when we ensure everyone does what's on the 'list'!)
The children enjoyed using the dark den and equipment again this morning, and then decided it would be more fun to post all the cars and musical instruments through the window!
Meanwhile, we had a giant roll of paper on the floor and the children drew around the christmas stencils, colouring in..... cut out old Christmas cards..... stuck and glued!
After snack, the Christmas music came on, and with the ribbon dancing wands we had great fun twirling, dancing and running around!
And now for the science bit........ DID YOU KNOW?? When handwriting the movements originate from the shoulder so drawing giant circles, twirling ribbons. etc. exercises those muscles needed for writing.... - I bet you're trying it now aren't you!!! :-)
