Week ending Friday 16th October
This week we have been learning all about fairy tales. Our nursery children have become storytellers and have used puppets and role play to retell The Gingerbread Man, The Three Little Pigs and Goldilocks.
We have put the gingerbread man’s buttons back on him in our maths activity using 1:1 number correspondence. We also ordered the sizes of the three bear’s belongings in our Goldilocks maths activity.
After listening to The Three Little Pigs, we looked at a selection of items and ask children to predict which will blow away. They sorted them into the two columns and used a fan to test which materials are best.
Week ending Friday 25th September
Oor arrrrr me harties! ☠ We have had a fun filled week learning all about pirates.
We started off the week with the story Pirate Pete and dressed up with Pirate props. We talked about what might the story be about and the children did very well pointing out all the main things that a pirate has / looks like. After this, the children enjoyed investigating pirate/ beach bits and bobs in the tuff tray- drift wood, shells, stones.
We have been learning to sing the song 5 Little Pirates with props and children were able count how many pirates are left each time. Later in the week we sang this song using the parachute and one child jumped off ‘the ship’ each time.
Our favourite activity this week has been our pirate treasure hunt. We looked at a treasure map and talked about what it could be. We jumped on board our pirate ship and went exploring to find the buried treasure. Nursery used their map of the forest school area to locate the golden coins and were amazed at how much treasure they found.
Our nursery children have advanced their learning this week through their chosen pirate enhancements. They have really got into role making pirate hats, dressing up making maps and scrolls and their own treasure chests to cut and stick coins
We are so proud of our nursery children and how well they have settled back into their routine over the past two weeks. So much so that we have made them all stars of the week this week!
