Week 10 in Nursery

posted 19 Nov 2015, 04:29 by Vicki Bowes

At the end of last week we celebrated Children in Need day in Nursery. We got dressed up as Pudsey Bear or a superhero to show our support to those children less fortunate than us.

This week in Nursery we have been continuing to establish our speaking and listening skills and we have been focusing on developing our counting skills.

Whilst working in the areas and our outdoor environment, we have enjoyed counting through songs and rhymes and we have been trying hard to identify numbers.

Consolidating our learning of changes taking place within the environment, we really enjoyed learning about animals that hibernate during the autumn and winter months. Linked to our story focus, we sorted animals that hibernate and animals that do not hibernate.

Did you know that bats and hedgehogs hibernate?

We particularly enjoyed making hibernating hedgehogs using; bread, twiglets, carrots and raisins. We enjoyed eating them even more!!!

In PE we enjoyed exploring movement, using our bodies to travel in different ways.

On Monday we showcased our dance performance to the rest of the Academy to celebrate the end of dance week. We certainly were the best that we can be!

In Phonics, Mrs Edgar and Mrs Dean’s group have been developing their awareness of sounds and rhymes. They have been learning to distinguish between different sounds and to remember patterns of sounds. We really enjoyed making sounds with our bodies. Miss Pounder’s children have been listening carefully to initial letter sounds in words and developing their segmenting and blending skills. We really enjoyed investigating what was inside our sound bag this week.

It has been a busy week in nursery and we certainly have been making our best better to be the best that we can be!

Keep checking nursery’s webpage and the school’s Twitter page to find out what we have been getting up to! Next week our letter of the week is ‘c’ and our number of the week is 11. Can you think of a word that begins with this phoneme? Can you count up to the number 11? What number is one less than 11? What number is one more than 11?
