Winter definitely arrived this week with frosty mornings and chilly days! We are heading towards Christmas now that December is here and practising hard for our Christmas 🎄 production.
Owlets got creative with their imaginations in class this week. They make whole cities and fantastic machines. Cooperatively working, learning to take turns and coming to agreements on the final designs. They learn so much through play.
