This week, we have read the story Each Peach Pear Plum. We learned about the queen and about the platinum jubilee. We enjoyed playing in the castle role play area and creating our own castles. We have also been mixing colours.
This week, we have been looking at the story of ‘The Gingerbread Man’. We explored loose parts to create a gingerbread man. We also played some gingerbread man themed maths games and explored magnets and hooks on the cranes/lorries to carry a load.
Last week, we continued to focus on the story of ‘Little Red Riding Hood’. We discovered paw prints in our classroom and thought they might belong to the big, bad wolf. We created wanted posters to find the wolf and made traps. The children enjoyed sticking their posters up around the classroom for others to see.
In nursery, we have started to learn our set 1 phonics sounds. We follow the Read Write Inc. scheme for phonics. In RWI, each sound has a picture card and a rhyme to help write the sound. Your child will be familiar with letter names from learning the alphabet song. In phonics lessons we talk about the sound and the rhyme to help us write that sound. In nursery, we will be focusing on the children pronouncing the sound correctly. The children will be given opportunities to mark make and form the sound throughout their play e.g. painting in glitter, writing with chalk, forming the sound with loose items.
Clear pronunciation of sounds is extremely important. This video will demonstrate how to say sounds clearly.
This week, we have enjoyed looking at the story of ‘Little Red Riding Hood’. We made baskets, explored red paint and looked for red objects outside. We have also started our RWI phonics and learnt how to say ‘m’ and ‘s’
Last week, the children in nursery enjoyed the story ‘Supertato’. We made traps for the evil pea, created our own supertato and explored printing with vegetables.
