Watch our Nativity Vlog below. December is suddenly here and we are offically allowed to talk about Christmas! The countdown to the big day has begun with fun advent activities for the children.
Advent countdown to the Nativity
These include reading their favourite Christmas books, opening their advent calendars at home and virtually on the Makaton website (watch out for Mia and Natty who made their little video last month), practising for their school carol concerts and nativity plays, writing cards for friends and teachers, helping to decorate the house and joining in with creating homemade festive crafts.
We've cranked up a few of our top festive films already and the children have persuaded us to take them to the cinema to see Nativity 3. Phase one of Christmas music is to be heard playing around the house, the pop faves, not the full on Nat King Cole and Bing Crosy though. They get unleashed at the 11th hour.
