Week 6 in Nursery!

posted 21 Oct 2015, 06:26 by Vicki Bowes
This week in Nursery we have been focusing on the following aspects of learning; speaking and listening, understanding and space, shape and measure.

We have continued to explore the theme of Harvest and be thankful for the food that we eat and on Friday we celebrated Harvest as an academy in our school hall. We sang our Harvest song ‘The farmer plants his seed.’

Our story focus this week has been a book called The Little Red Hen. This story was about a hen who planted a single grain of wheat to make bread. When the wheat grew nice and tall, she harvested it, ground it into flour, and then used the flour to make bread. This gave us a fantastic idea, just like the Little Red Hen, we made our very own bread too. Unlike the characters in the story, we were very helpful and we worked together to make the bread!

We used plain flour, self-rising flour, salt, bicarbonate of soda and buttermilk to make our bread. It was delicious!

As well as consolidating our learning about all things harvest, we have also been developing our understanding of prepositions and challenging ourselves to use positional language to describe the position of objects.


Where is Emerald? Is he on top of Elizabeth’s head? Is he inside of the box? Is he behind the box? Can you spot him?

In phonics we have been developing our understanding of alliteration. We have been listening carefully to initial phonemes in words and we have learning to discriminate between them, exploring how different sounds are articulated.

We have enjoyed taking our learning forward in our outdoor environment.


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 ‘m’ and our number of the week is 7. Can you think of a word that begins with this phoneme? Can you count up to the number 7? What number comes before number 7? What number comes after number 7?
