Week 4 in Nursery

posted 5 Oct 2015, 07:57 by Vicki Bowes
Happy learning everybody! This week through our classroom areas and outdoor provision, we have been focusing on the following aspects of learning; Speaking and listening and writing.

At every opportunity we have been learning to give meaning to the marks that we make. We have been trying hard to ensure that we hold our pencils correctly and we have been using our name cards to copy our names on our work using identifiable letters.

This week we have had lots of fun thinking about our dreams and what we would like to be when we grow up. We made dream catchers to catch our dreams and we hope that the dream fairy listens carefully to our goals and aspirations.

What are your goals and aspirations this year?

We noticed some changes in our environment this week. We spotted some brambles growing in our outdoor area and we decided to pick them. Once we washed them, we were given the opportunity to taste them. They were delicious!

In phonics we have been developing our awareness of rhyme through rhyming stories, games and songs. We really enjoyed joining in with nursery rhymes and making rhyming soup.

We have enjoyed consolidating our learning about shapes this week by playing with shapes to make patterns and arrangements and using them to make shape monsters.

Linked to our learning about ourselves, we learnt a new song this week called ‘My Body’ Click on the link below to listen to this song.


The weather has been kind to us this week and we have really enjoyed extending our learning in our outdoor provisions.

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

Keep checking nursery’s webpage and the schools Twitter page to find out what we have been getting up to! Next week our letter of the week is ‘i’ and our number of the week is 5. Can you think of a word that begins with this phoneme? Can you count 5 objects? What number comes after 5?
