The children were very excited today to begin reading some festive stories. Today’s book was Little Robin Red Vest.
One frosty evening, a week before Christmas, Little Robin washes and irons seven warm vests for the chilly nights to come. As the days go by, he comes across lots of shivering animals and kindly offers them his vests to wear. But – oh no! – on Christmas Eve, Little Robin is cold and alone with no vests left! That is, until a special someone arrives to reward his kindness . . .
Here are some of the reflections about the book:

The 4BH assembly in week 7 has a Christmas theme. If possible we are asking the children to wear Christmas themed clothing. Red/Green/Gold t-shirt, Christmas dress or T-shirt, reindeer ears, elf hat, Santa hat etc. We are also asking for as many children as possible to bring a pair of sunglasses to add impact to one of our routines.
We have been having a great time working with our buddies preparing for this festive celebration.
