Christmas is a lovely time of the year at Merton Bank with lots of activities going on, bringing enjoyment and cheer to our pupils and our wider Merton Bank Community.
Letter from Father Christmas
Due to Covid-19 we couldn’t have visitors in school, so Father Christmas sent us a letter explaining that we were going to have a special Festive Breakfast with our friends instead
Getting Very Busy in the Early Years
We were very busy in Reception and Nursery doing lots of lovely festive activities during December. We loved being Father Christmas’s helpers and enjoying some festive treats.
We made a festive wreath for our classroom door, which was really special as we used our own handprints and put them together for our final piece.
The Elves’ Workshop
We worked hard making toys in the workshop for Father Christmas. We used our motor skills to make some brilliant items.
We had worked so hard making the toys for Father Christmas that we then had to wrap them carefully and place them under the Christmas tree.
Each class enjoyed a Christmas dinner with all the trimmings including crackers! The staff served them with festive cheer and we enjoyed some festive music as we enjoyed our delicious food.
Helping Our Community
We collected donations for Teardrops to provide food for those who need it this time of year.
Christmas Jumper Day
We celebrated National Jumper Day by wearing Christmas jumpers for the day and by being festive
Each class ate yummy party food, danced away to the festive music and played lots of party games. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and there was a lot of festive spirit to be seen across the school
Christmas Movie Afternoon
Each class had the opportunity to have an afternoon in our Christmas cinema where they enjoyed popcorn, hot chocolate and a Christmas film.
