Nativity Art

With just a few weeks of school left for the year, we've started thinking about Christmas! Our art activity today was to make a Nativity scene. We drew a star with oil pastel, then painted the sky and the ground. We tried to make the ground one third of the page and the sky two thirds. We also painted strips of paper to make the stable and Mrs N gave us pictures of Jesus, Mary and Joseph to colour and cut out. Later, we got to draw extra things, like angels, donkeys, cows and sheep to add to our creations. Don't they look cute! We're really looking forward to doing more Christmas arts and crafts in the next few weeks.

Next week, we start swimming lessons. Living in Australia means that many of us spend a lot of time in swimming pools, or at the beach in the Sumner, so it's especially important that we all know how to swim. We are going to walk to the swimming pool and have one lesson after lunch each day for two weeks. It's lots of fun and we can't wait!

Love from The Smarties and Mrs N


  1. Hi Mrs N. This is lovely. I have been following your blog for years! I was wondering how you get those three photos so perfectly next to one another in a Blogger blog? In the post below you have a great photo design as well. Would love to know your secret! Thanks from Fiona (;
