The last week of term before Christmas has been full of festivities.
Snowy messy play using happy land to role play and explore. Also using some christmas decorations in shaving foam to feel and describe textures.
We followed the story of the gingerbread man and used props to create our own story and make gingerbread men.
We’ve loved seeing the boys and girls in their Christmas jumpers and outfits this week.
St Helen’s decided to spread some Christmas cheer and sent a little card, with messages from the children to the residents of Brooklands care home. We also sent them an audio of the children singing, and a song sheet so they can sing along. The children helped to make stars this week as part of the Costessey cares campaign, our stars are now in the windows of The Crown PH and The Cooperative on Dereham Road.
As you may have already heard, this week we enjoyed a yummy Christmas snack consisting of snack sausages, cheesy biscuits, pineapple, orange, apple, and the children had a choice of biscuit or mince pie. In the afternoons we had hot chocolate and marshmallows.
Im sure we’re all deeply disappointed by the fact we couldn’t hold our usual open morning this Christmas, due to COVID-19 restrictions. As always the health and safety of our children and staff is paramount. We have tried our best to enjoy the festive season as much as possible with the children. We hope all our parents enjoyed the Christmas goody bag sent home and have seen the special video posted onto our closed Facebook group.
The staff and committee at St Helens would like to wish you and your families a healthy, happy Christmas and new year. Stay safe and take care. 🎄⭐️❄️🎄⭐️❄️
