Our First Nativity

Who was born in a stable and who came to visit him?

This week Reception children have been learning the Nativity Story and practising the First Nativity for their performance next week. We read the Usborne Nativity book and the children realised that this was the same story they were going to be performing to their parents. We had our Nativity schemes out in the classrooms and have been retelling the story. We have combined our Maths learning with our Nativity scene as we are learning about positional maths so - Where is the baby? He is in the manger. Can you tell me where the star is? It is on top of the stable. Can you see Mary? She is standing next to Joseph. The children have been decorating their class Christmas trees and making paper chains to brighten the place up. They have also cut out pictures of the nativity story to sequence in the correct order.

Outside, a sprinkle of love, a scoop of oats and a dash of magic, were the ingredients needed to make reindeer food. Some children made magic wands to assist the magic. Bronze class dyed fabric using squashed berries which they squished themselves using hammers. Lots of fun and learning was had by all.
