We have learnt at nursery that Christmas is the celebration of Jesus’ birthday. We prepared for the celebration by decorating our tree. We counted the days with our advent tree. Each day one person took home a salt dough angel to hang on their tree at home. We learnt how to make paper chain decorations to hang in the house, made Christmas cards for our family and a snowman bauble to hang on our tree at home.
We made toys in Santa’s workshop, a flying potion for the reindeer in the water and wrote letters to Santa in the writing area.
We invited our parents to our nativity play and told the story of Jesus’ birth and drew a picture of the people who visited the stable.
