The story ‘Whatever Next!’ by Jill Murphy was enjoyed by all and the children were fantastic at acting it out using the props. They worked together to create a giant bear collage, also practising their cutting and gluing skills. In Maths, they gathered food and equipment for bear to have on a picnic, remembering to count one item at a time. Outside they counted jumps on the trampoline and experimented with different ways to move their bodies. The children have learned a new way to put on their coats independently using the ‘Coat Trick’- they put their arms through the sleeves and flip it over their heads! To end the week, they were introduced to a song using sticks and they had to tap the sticks in different positions such as: up high, down low, in front and behind. We also had a lot fun making a stage and performing!
Ask your child if they can show you how to put their coat on using the ‘Coat Trick’.
This week you learned ‘Teddy bear, Teddy Bear, Turn Around’. Can you practise the rhyme with your teddy?
Teddy bear, teddy bear, turn around,
Teddy bear, teddy bear, touch the ground,
Teddy bear, teddy bear, reach up high,
Teddy bear, teddy bear, touch the sky,
Teddy bear, teddy bear, bend down low,
Teddy bear, teddy bear, touch your toes,
Teddy bear, teddy bear, go to bed,
Teddy bear, teddy bear, rest your head,
Teddy bear, teddy bear, turn out the lights,
Teddy bear, teddy bear, say “good night”.
Next week we will be revisiting our favourite rhymes so far.
Next week our book of the week is ‘I Like It When…’ by Mary Murphy. We will be talking about the what the children like; discussing how to keep safe by using kind hands to tidy up and be gentle; revisiting our favourite songs; talking about patterns and making patterns and mark making in response to a familiar song.
Well done to the following children who received a Class Teacher’s Award this week:
Aashi, Mikail, pritish and Alina
The children have enjoyed talking about their experiences and role playing being on an aeroplane, after listening to the story od the week: Maisy Goes on a Plane. They also enjoyed practising saying their numbers while singing the song Five Little Men in an Aeroplane. Sammy Squirrel made a visit and the children were very good at saying goodnight to him but found it hilarious when he was a bit silly at bedtime. The children enjoyed talking about different feelings (happy, sad, angry) and looking at photographs and deciding how the children felt. To end the week, we celebrated what we did in Nursery this week and shared our experiences with our friends.
A few highlights:
Our book of the week will be ‘Whatever Next!’ by Jill Murphy.
The children will be: acting out the story using props; making bear collages; collecting and counting food for a picnic; talking about their families and learning a song while playing claves.
