Happy Christmas from Nursery

December has been a magical month in Nursery. The children learned about the first Christmas and how people celebrate Jesus’ birthday each year. They role played the Nativity in the home corner and made an Advent wreath to take home.

As always Nursery put on their amazing Nativity Play. This years performance was called ‘A Little Bird Told Me.’ Every child sang their hearts out and knew all of the actions! Miss O’Connor is incredibly proud!

 

 

 

 

It would not be Christmas without a Christmas party and the children all looked wonderful in their party clothes!

  

 

  

We hope you all have a great Christmas and a super New Year!!!
