Another busy week in Nursery!
Thursday 1st February | 4 comments
There have been no monsters this week but the children have still been super busy. In phonics and music, we have been using the tap sticks to tap out syllables in the words avocado, broccoli and tomato. We also sing songs tapping the rhythm with our sticks. The children have listened carefully to the story ‘The 3 Little Pigs’. They joined in with the wolf “Little pig, little pig let me come in” and the pigs “Not by the hair on my chinny, chin, chin”. We talked about the characters and how they felt and recreated some of their expressions ourselves.
In our number work we had to help Charlie pack his case for his holiday. He had a list of things he needed and how many of each. The children had to either read the number or count the objects to work out how many of each item to pack. We have done lots of counting forwards and backwards.
We continue to encourage the children to say ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ without being prompted and they are trying really hard.
We had another busy stay and read session: it was lovely to see some new faces reading stories to the children. Everyone is welcome and you don’t have to come every week.
The children had a fabulous time at the pyjama party organised by Ayla. She planned the games and food. We enjoyed playing sleeping lions, dancing, pass the parcel and eating pizza!
The children are developing their friendships and it is lovely to watch them playing cooperatively together. We made slime this week that the children loved playing with. Playing with our friends…
Have a fun weekend, wrap up warm.
