We read several versions of the christmas story. We also watched a DVD of the story and the KS1 and KS2 performances and commented on them. We set up a stable in the role play area and the children were taught how to act as the various characters. A puppet and small world area was equipped for them to retell the story.
In circle time, we thought about what we would take for the baby Jesus and then some of us drew and wrote about them. We wrote about our experiences of our school nativity. In the construction area the children designed a stable for the baby Jesus to stay.
