Today was an amazing morning of child initiated play using their imagination to engage all their friends in a fabulous piece of learning developing lots of areas of learning. Our morning children decided to get on the Santa train. Heidi said we were going to see Santa and Elliot told us that we had to go to The North Pole. Obviously Miss Frisby used this opportunity to get some mark making evidence and told them that only good children could go and they needed to write their names on the good list. The blanks list were all ready as they had shown an interest in this last week so Miss Frisby had made a ‘good’ book and a ‘not so good’ book. Everyone was in the good book. Yay! Although Livia decided that her sister Lente’s teacher, should be on the ‘naughty’ list. So she wrote her name on the sheet and off we went to tell her! I’m sure Mrs Mallaby will be good from now on!
Miss Frisby found a bell like the one Eliana has and everyone was deafened as various people rang the bell with all their might. Daisy shouted ‘all aboard’ and rang it so hard that the middle of the bell fell out but don’t worry, Miss Frisby fixed it! Miss Frisby supplied a Santa hat which the driver of the train wore and they efficiently organised chairs so that everyone could fit on the train. They loved it and the writing and language opportunites were amazing.
