Traditional tales

First  of all very well done to all the nursery children. The older children have adjusted very well to having lots more friends to share the classroom with and have been excellent role models helping the new children to settle in. It is hard to remember that the  new children have only been with us for a week, (and some not even that.) They have settled so well and are joining in enthusiastically with all aspects of the nursery morning.
This week we have been thinking about traditional tales. We have listened to the story of the 3 little pigs, the gingerbread man and the little red hen. The children have been talking about the characters and events that make up these stories and joining in with the repeated refrains found in these stories. 

In busy fingers we have enjoyed filling different sized containers with sand and finding out how using funnels makes it easier to fill some pots.

In RE we talked about what happens at a celebration. Some of us played a game trying to remember what celebration objects were on a tray.

We also had our first PE lesson  as a whole class. Here we are in action. (Please remember no tights on  PE day which is usually a Wednesday as we do PE in bare feet.)

On Wednesday we went to our first Key Stage One assembly and were complemented on how well we sat and listened.
Next week we are learning all about rhyming words and will be listening to some rhyming stories. We will also be exploring how you can change the sound of an instrument by playing it in a different way. In maths we will be counting and comparing 2 groups of objects and finding out when they have the same or a different number.
Here are a few of the other things we have done this week.

Thank you for the family photographs. If you have not yet had a chance to bring one in, then next week is fine to do so. Please could all the children who started in January bring in their favourite book next week to share at key worker time.
Have a lovely weekend,
Jill Clarke
