Birthdays are a colourful celebration and with christmas coming up which is about a birthday you could lea form general birthdays into waiting for a specail child and go into Christmas. What a lovely topic title.

 

sorry about the typos one hand moves faster than the other and i keep getting reversals.

Could the role play be a party shop- the children make cards/paper/gifts/boxes, etc to sell? Decorate with streamers/balloons?

Or maybe a house set for a celebration -where they need to make party food and set table- choose cloths/counting crockery etc? My class have really enjoyed the original home crner for the whole of the last half term and have got lots out of it.

Unfortunately I think you'll have missed Diwali, but Eid (end of Ramadan) and Hannukah also happen before the end of term. Both have celebratory similarities and differences which can be explored to work towards the cultures and beliefs aspects of PSE and KUW.
