Wow! We have been very busy this week getting into the Christmas spirit!

On Monday we had some of our parents come in and watch our wonderful Christmas singing! All of the children sang beautifully and there are some videos below of the children singing their songs for the people who want to watch it all again or who may have missed it. A big thank you to the parents who came and joined in with our lovely singing J

On Tuesday we had a very fun day full of Christmas parties! We ate lots of Christmas food, played pass the parcel, went into the big hall to play music statues and we learnt a new game called ‘The Christmas Train’ All the children had lots of fun and tried really hard to win! Well done to all our winners!J

On Wednesday it was the morning children’s turn to go to Roves farm and we all had a fantastic time meeting Santa Claus, playing on the big play area, going down the very fast slide, making some lovely Arts and Crafts, all the children did a fabulous job in the nativity play, well done to our little Mary- Laney and our little Joseph- Russell! And to end our day we had fun meeting some of the animals having a cuddle with the rabbits and feeding the sheep and goats. Thank you to all the parents who came to the farm, we hope you all had a wonderful day and all the children slept well that night as I know all the teachers did J

On Thursday we had a very special visit come and see us Santa Claus! He came and gave us some wonderful presents. The morning children got a magical castle and the afternoon children got a happy land safari set! All the toys will be shared between all the children! Thank you very much to Santa for taking the time to come and see us!

Forest School Term 2


This week we have been working with Mrs Holmes for our Forest School session.

Our task this time was to create Christmas decorations using natural resources.

After collecting twigs and branches from the local park, the children used bow saws and

hand drills to design their individual pieces.

The children had a wonderful time and have all made something special to take home.

We are very sorry there has been no blog for the last couple weeks, we have been very busy in St Erth class preparing for Christmas.

This week we have read the nativity story to get ourselves ready for the school trip to Roves Farm. We have loved role playing in Santa’s workshop, wrapping the presents, writing our Christmas lists for Santa and we have especially loved making Santa’s sleigh using the big cardboard boxes.

At the beginning of the week we had a very special treat, we got to go and watch the year 2 nativity play which was absolutely brilliant and we all really enjoyed it! Thank you for the invite year 2! J

“My sister was Mary”

We have been very busy making all our Christmas arts and crafts! You are in for lots of surprises this year that you can treasure for years to come.

Even the grown-ups have been getting crafty… making a couple of little treats for us to bring home at the end of termJ

We even had a very special snack this week; we had a mini Christmas dinner: – a turkey sandwich, a pig in blanket and a gingerbread biscuit for pudding!


We want to say a big thank you to all the families from the afternoon session that came on our trip with us to Roves Farm. The children had an absolute blast meeting Santa Claus, doing some Christmas arts and crafts, playing on the big play area, going on the tractor ride, feeding and stroking the little farm animals and re-telling the story of the nativity. All the children did a wonderful job and really enjoyed it! Well done to our very own little Mary – Oliva.R and a little Joseph- Santiago. All the children were very brave when it came to touching/ being near the animals! We really hope all the parents enjoyed themselves as well! If you have any pictures of your children all dressed up or just enjoying the day, please feel free to send the photos over to us through our nursery email address (nursery@evenswindon.co.uk) or print them off for us to put in their learning journeys!

We are really looking forward to next week’s trip for the morning children! And we hope they have as much fun as the afternoon children did!
