December is approaching fast, & we will be marking the start of the new month by talking about why some people celebrate Christmas & the story behind it, & decorating the classrooms, as well as doing Christmas star crafts & Christmas tree art! The children will also be dressing up & doing yoga – trying to balance the excitement with some relaxation!!
We are aware that there are many wonderful celebrations that occur during December, & would love to know if you celebrate any of them e.g. Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, New Year’s Eve – or any other that is special to you – & if so if you could send us a brief description of your celebrations/how you mark the occasion via email or text to the school that would be wonderful to share with your child’s class!
I’m a Little Christmas Tree (tune of I’m a Little Teapot)
I’m a little Christmas tree tall and straight,
Here are my branches for you to decorate.
First you put the star on the very top –
Just be careful that the baubles don’t drop!
There was a little snowman who had a carrot nose,
Along came a rabbit, and what do you suppose?
That hungry little rabbit, looking for his lunch,
Ate the snowman’s carrot nose….
Nibble, nibble, crunch!!!
