The Language of the Season!

It is important to include students in the preparation for Christmas by encouraging them to make their own decorations and to talk about what they are doing. Nano Cottage became a hive of activity as a Nativity Scene was constructed using a cardboard box lid and finger puppets with gold crowns, became the three kings!A yellow 3D star was made using a plastic cup with a cut out star-shape attached and carefully placed on the top of the tree!

Lots of good "At home this is what we do ...." stories, were generated and correct seasonal terminology used! A Christmas wreath was made using a scarf and strawberry candles, with sprigs of lavender placed in the centre!
