Although 2020 has been a challenge for many of us, the cheerful festive spirit did not stray from being lively at Rainbow Village, bringing the children a distraction from the outside world and instead allowing them to be jolly once again! As the cool winds blew with carols echoing in the air, the month of lights was finally here.
The children at Rainbow Village found embracing the holiday's spirit with the X-Mas' parade and by engaging themselves in endless learning experiences that involved the Christmas theme, from creating their very own Gingerbread man to constructing the Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer with arts and craft materials. While at the same time, engaging in literacy components and science experiments to further enhance their critical thinking and reasoning skills.
The interests which were observed during this month were:
Christmas (Santa Clause & the village, snowman, Christmas tree, Rudolph the red nose reindeer, puppet shows and carols, decorating Gingerbreadman)
Winter Snow (snow castles, snow angels, food colouring)
Beads (threading, fine motor skills)
Colours (science experiment with Skittles)
Alphabets (letter puzzles, tracing letters using stencils, enhancing vocabulary)
