This week we have been very busy with our Nativity practising songs and doing dress rehearsals which we were all fantastic at! We have also been busy with Christmas crafts, making Christmas cards and also putting up the Christmas tree and decorating it. We made advent wreaths in preparation for Christmas. This weeks story is You Choose so this week the children got to decide what they wanted to make, they decided it was between porridge and supercrunch and which ever had the most votes we would make. Supercrunch won so we cut up some fruit, mixed it with yoghurt and honey and crushed some cereal over the top. You can find this recipe on the Phunky Foods website.
