December -6

This week we started with our weekly Monday assembly, where we repeated some Nursery Rhymes and learned some new ones.  Some of the fun links you can enjoy include:
1,2, Buckle My Shoe:
Pictures that refer to the ‘’big fat hen’’, a pillow used in lace making:
 Baa Baa Black Sheep:
There was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly:
Row row row your boat:

Every day all preschool classes came together to rehearse and practice for Friday’s assembly!  Finally, on Friday, Toddlers, Preschool 1 & 2 performed their Nursery Rhyme performance for the whole school!  The assembly was continued by a Zumba session to raise money for the fire-fighter families who were affected by the tragedy in Zolitūde in November.  The whole school community took part in dances and movements and for about 40 minutes positive energy and power were spread all around!
During the week we all were busy making Christmas tree decorations for both trees – the one in our Pre-school area and the big one in the main hall.  Have a look, it looks so beautiful and Christmassy.
On Monday we opened the first doors on our Toddler advent calendar presented to us by Jurijs’ mommy. The children enjoy exploring the pictures behind the each door and eagerly wait for Christmas every day.
All week long Toddlers have been rehearsing their favourite Nursery Rhymes for our first whole school assembly (we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!), and we also practiced a dance with jingle bells for the Winter festival. Thank you Mr Medd for supporting us throughout our rehearsals!
This week we worked on some special arts & crafts projects for next week, but we will keep it top secret for now!
On Friday, after our first whole Preschool assembly, Toddlers enjoyed joining all the big children and teachers in the Zumba session. They reflected on what they had experienced by saying “FUN!” and “JUMP!” for the rest of the day. We can certainly say that our new favourite word is “FUN!” And we definitely had fun playing in the first snow during our outside recess on Friday!

Preschool 1
Preschool 1 children started the week by celebrating Marat’s birthday – Happy Birthday Marat!  Preschool 1 enjoyed making decorations for the trees and the rooms and we would like to express our thanks to Lorenzo’s, Marat’s, and Alisa’s mummies and nanny for helping with the lovely ornament workshop!  Also a special thank you to Laura, Raimond’s aunt, who read a lovely book to the Preschool 1 children last week! 

Preschool 2
This week Thursday we said good-bye and farewell to Miss Sandra who was in our class for the last 6 weeks.  It was a pleasure to have her with us for this time and we will surely remember her!  Miss Sandra gave us a nice calendar with memories of her time spent with us.
