Week 6 in Nursery

posted 10 Oct 2014, 05:58 by Tom Kentfield-Wells   [ updated 10 Oct 2014, 05:58 ]
This week in Nursery we have continued to learn about the changes that take place during autumn.

We explored natural objects found within our local environment including leaves, conkers and fir cones. We also made a den for Ned the hibernating hedgehog in our investigation area. 

In Literacy we read a non-fiction book about animals that hibernate. We identified animals that prepare to hibernate during autumn and we talked about reasons why they hibernate. 

In maths we have been teaching Emerald how to count and recognise numbers. We have been learning to count objects accurately by saying one number name for each object.
We had lots of fun counting conkers, fir cones and leaves. 

In phonics we have been developing our understanding of alliteration by listening carefully to phonemes at the beginning of words. We have been exploring how different sounds are articulated to further extend our understanding of alliteration. Our new letter of the week this week has been 'i'. 

We enjoyed looking at and identifying sounds in our ‘sound bag.’

In our topic session we read a story about a hibernating hedgehog called Ned. After reading this story we made our very own hedgehogs using bread, twigglets, carrots, cucumber and raisins.

We have had lots of fun this week developing our understanding of changes that take place in autumn and learning about animals that prepare to hibernate during the autumn months! Keep checking Nursery’s webpage to find out what we have been getting up to! Next week we look forward to learning about all things Harvest!
