Wow!...To finish off our exciting term we had a really fantastic Christmas party.
Both our morning and afternoon children came together for a fun filled party with dancing, comedy and surprises!
The children wore their special party clothes and looked amazing! They were all really excited about a nursery day that was very different but lots of fun.
We began with a very special guest called Peter Presto. Peter entertained us by doing lots of funny things and showing us lots of magic tricks. We were all really surprised as things appeared and disappeared, changed colour and made funny noises. He also had some furry friends who came to see us too! Peter was very funny and really made us all laugh! He even chose some of our nursery children to help him with his magic and they were absolutely amazing! Peter and his helpers all did a brilliant job and the children really enjoyed the show...a big thank you to Peter.
Our party lunch was very special today. After we had all made sure our hands were clean, we carefully and safely went together to Long Room and were each given a lovely Christmas picnic box. We had already chosen our favourite sandwiches and enjoyed these and lots of other lovely party food and everyone remembered their good sitting and their beautiful manners too.
After our lunch we had party music to create our very own disco and the children really enjoyed dancing and playing some games like musical statues and musical bumps. We also had a very special visitor too…Santa Claus!... took time out from his busy schedule to come and visit us at South Normanton Nursery!
We talked to him about the things that we would like for Christmas and he even had a bag of gifts for each group that he had brought with him today. One special gift for each child to put under their Christmas tree, to open on Christmas day! Before Santa left we sang him some of our favourite Christmas songs which he seemed to really enjoy and then we said thank you and goodbye until Christmas Day...and then got ready for our grown ups to come.
We had a really busy and fantastic party...what a lot of fun and what a lovely way to finish the term.
So now all that remains is to wish all of our children and their family and friends a very Happy Christmas and all the very best for 2018. Stay safe, have fun and enjoy the holidays.
