Week 12 in Nursery

posted 4 Dec 2015, 06:01 by Vicki Bowes
This week in Nursery we have been developing our effective characteristic of learning skills through play and exploration. 

On Monday afternoon we got to watch a special show of Jack and the Beanstalk to celebrate all of our learning that has taken place around this story!

We thought the giant’s baby was very funny!

In PE we have been thinking about different ways we can travel across apparatus using our bodies.

We have been continuing to look for the giant in nursery but we have been unable to find him! We really enjoyed using musical instruments to retell the story of Jack and the Beanstalk, thinking about which instruments represented each character.

At the end of the week we enjoyed planting magic beans outside in our outdoor environment. We will observe their development overtime and ensure that we look after them.

If a huge beanstalk grows, we could all climb to the top! Lets just hope a giant isn’t waiting for us!!!

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 sounds and developing an awareness of patterns of sound. We really enjoyed talking about different sounds that can be made with our bodies and what different sounds mean. Miss Pounder’s children have been listening carefully to initial phonemes in words and developing their segmenting and blending skills. We really enjoyed using the phoneme bin to explore phonemes and discriminate different sounds.

It has been a very 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 we will be focusing on the digraph ‘ck’ and our number of the week is 13. Can you think of a word that has this digraph in it? Can you count up to the number 13? What number is one less than 13? What number is one more than 13?
