News from the Rooms
This month in the Toddler Room, the Toddlers are hard at work getting ready for Christmas. With a little help from Sarah and Elizabeth they have made a beautiful Christmas tree with stockings for presents. We have also started to learn Christmas songs at circle time. Our favourite at the moment is Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer. The Toddlers are all very excited about a visit from Santa.
Elizabeth & Sarah
The month of November was very interesting month for the Children in Pre-Montessori. Our themes included making a mini farm, learning our fruits and vegetables and also making a fruit bowl for the wall. We also put our photos of our ‘Bring & Share day’ on the wall so please come in and have a look. Christmas time is here again and we are going to be very busy decorating our room for Santa using lots of arts and crafts.
Diana & Anita
November was very busy for Montessori, we were talking about what lies beneath the sea and investigating various sea creatures. We talked a lot about dinosaurs this month, the T-Rex being the favourite. The children all loved this theme.
This month we will be talking about winter and we are looking forward to winning the room décor prize again (hahahahaha!!)
It will be Amaia’s birthday at the end of December and we would like to wish her a very Happy Birthday.
Our Giant Santa will be keeping an eye on his good girls and boys….
Have a great Christmas, Emer & Marie-Louise
The ECCE Room has been very busy over the past month. We’re starting to get ready for Christmas now. We have been writing our letters to Santa and making beautiful Christmas decorations.
It will be Zoe’s birthday at the end of December, we would like to wish her a very Happy Birthday!
Enjoy the holidays!
The Afterschool children are very busy in school these days and like to relax in the afternoon. They love to colour, paint and get messy with gloop. We’ve also made some nice clay figures and made some delicious cakes, we even tried making yummy chocolate croissants. We’re all really looking forward to Christmas.
This year Mother Hubbards Nephin road have decided to organise a Christmas present appeal for the Sophia housing association in Dublin and St. Vincent de paul. Your child’s teacher will give you a letter with further information on how to be a part of this worthy cause. These letters will also be up on our doors for all to see. Parents are under no obligation to participate in this appeal if however you are in a position to participate, we greatly appreciate your generosity in brightening up another family’s Christmas.
As the weather is getting colder could all parents please send in a suitable coat and a hat, scarf and gloves for their child for outdoor play. Wellies and raincoats should be provided for wet days. You can label these items and leave them in the centre if you wish to do so.
Also we love celebrating birthdays here in Mother Hubbards, parents may send in a cake and treats if they wish. All baked goods must be store bought and in their original packaging as per HACCP Guidelines.
A huge thanks to every parent who voted in our Halloween Competition, I am very confident there was no cheating!!!!!! Our Winners were the Montessori Room; Congratulations to Marie-Louise and Emer, enjoy the half day girls….
