Buddy the Christmas Elf!

Buddy the elf arrived in Nursery this week! We could hear his bells jingling on Monday in our special Nursery box, and when we sang our ‘Whats in the box?’ song, Buddy appeared! He has been leaving us notes and letters, and sometimes challenges to do! He has also been getting up to some mischievous things! We started the week writing Christmas lists and letters to Father Christmas, as well as building our gross motor skills in our Christmas themed ‘Funky Fingers’ area! On Wednesday Buddy asked us to make ‘Santa Searchers’ in our creative area, and we also built him a sleigh in the construction area. We have been matching numeral to quantity by adding decorations onto numbered Christmas trees, and exploring patterns using different Christmas objects. Later on in the week our home corner was transformed into an elf wrapping station, where we wrapped presents, wrote tags, and put them in Santas sack ready to be delivered!
