This week in Nursery
Friday 11th June | 2 comments
This week we have started to look at the number 4. The children enjoyed listening to the story of Puppy Number 4 and his 4 missing bones. Have a look at the photos of how the children can represent the number 4 with their fingers.
The children can show 4+0, 0+4, 1+3, 3+1 and 2+2. Ask them to show you the different ways of making 4 at home.
Here is one of my favourite songs about the number 4…
We will be listening to this song over the next 3 weeks so you may want to play it at home as well!
Some other maths …
This week we are learning about the phoneme ‘i’.
It is sometimes difficult to find objects around beginning with this phoneme but have a look and if you find something please take a picture and put it on EExAT.
Please support you child to have a go forming the letter. In Nursery we use our ‘magic’ fingers in the air.
Look at what we have been doing inside this week…
Outside we are very proud of our vegetables and flowers…
The children have been looking after our peas, beans and flowers as well as planting some lettuces. They helped to sweep up after the grass had been cut and enjoyed some role play in the new playhouse.
One of the children in Nursery found a ‘Golden Ticket’ in her bar of chocolate. Her prize was for all of her class to have a trip to the park. The children enjoyed climbing and swinging and then had their snack in the park. Quite an adventure!
Next week we will be contributing to the Mountain Challenge. Look out for how far we have walked in next week’s blog.
We have had a lovely week weather wise and all the children took a leaflet home at the beginning of the week about being ‘Sun Aware’. Please remember to send your child with a named hat and apply sun cream before they come to Nursery. When you purchase a cream please look for one which will last all day.
Have a lovely weekend in the sun, from the Nursery team.
