Friday fun

Friday 10th November 2017

 

We have lots of lovely activities for the children to explore. The activities were chosen by the children to reinforce the learning intentions for this week. Child-initiated learning will encourage the children to settle in their new surroundings faster and these activities can foster both collaborative and parallel play.

The children have loved accessing the resources and learning the sound of the week 'p.' In addition to this, we have been talking about our families, our homes and where we live. We have used the computer to colour and draw pictures and the children have been drawing things beginning with p.

This week we have been learning all about the letter p. 

Can you think of any more words that begin with 'p'?

Phonics in Nursery

The children have been learning some phonics in Nursery. The sounds they know so far are s, a, t. We have been using letters and sounds games and jolly phonics songs to help reinforce their letter recognition and the sounds the letters make. Tuesday 31st October we learnt the letter t for tower, tennis and teacher. We also had a go at learning to write it.

Phonics drumming outdoors

Tuesday 3rd October

 

In nursery we are learning to listen to sounds in the environment and to make new sounds. Today we have been listening to the sounds we can make with the drum sticks on different surfaces. We found that drumming on metal sounded different to drumming on wood. We also listened to the different sounds the different drum sticks made. Please feel free to practise listening to sounds around the home and identifying them. We used a plastic bag and some noisy toys, the children had to listen and identify the toy from the sound it made. We have been giving them lots of praise and rewarding them with stickers for following the rules and routines in nursery. We are very proud of our nursery class.

Float or Sink?

Nursery have been investigating floating or sinking. Keep it up at home; play in the bath or in the paddling pool this weekend, in the sun.

 

Adventurous Eaters

 

peppars

 

Delicious red and orange peppars formed the snacks for today! Most children were brave enough to try some and these five found that they really liked them and had seconds (thirds for one of them).

 

Have a great weekend in the sun!
