It’s Christmas in Reception!

Last¬†week, our role play corner transformed into Santa’s Grotto and we were busy wrapping presents,¬†decorating trees¬†and writing Christmas cards!

… and we had a little visitor! We named our elf ‘Holly’ and she left a letter to say she had come to keep an eye out for acts of kindness! However, she’s a little cheeky and despite trying to be helpful by making Christmas decorations or decorating the classroom, she ended up getting in a bit of a pickle! We wrote to her to remind her how to look after our classroom!
