During the month of December, we were very busy getting ready for Santa in the Junior Room! We learned all about the journey our Santa letters and Christmas cards take during our Post Office theme in Aistear. At our writing station we wrote anonymous Christmas cards to one another and got a lovely surprise when they arrived back to us by post on the week of our holidays. We played in role as post men/women collecting and delivering post, assistants in the post office, working in the sorting station and got into role as customers. We used lego to build post offices, sorting centres, parcels and post vans.
During our Santa’s workshop theme, we worked as Santa’s elves helping him to build,test, weigh and wrap toys and get the sleigh and the reindeer ready for Christmas Eve. We had lots of fun dancing to Christmas music, decorating Christmas biscuits, decorating our tree, making Christmas tree decorations using clay and painting Christmas pictures.
