NSPCC Number day

On Friday the children wore clothing with numbers on to celebrate number day. Nursery enjoyed exploring all the number activities we had out in the classroom. Some children were number dectectives and tried to find the jelly numbers hidden in the dinosaur land. Others enjoyed painting with numbers, drawing round Numcion and counting how many wholes each piece had to find the total. Also they loved playing on the interactive white board as they counted how many spots the ladybird had and matched the quantity to the numeral.

Chinese New Year

This week the children have been learning about Chinese New Year. Nursery have loved role playing in our Chinese restaurant. They have even practiced using chops sticks!

Numbers and number songs

This week some of the Nursery children have been learning about the number 0. Please could you practice this with your child at home by drawing 0, by putting away toys so there is 0 toys on the floor and watching the numberblocks video 'Zero the hero'. Follow this link:
 Here is the Number Rhyme for drawing 0.

Some of the other Nursery children have been learing the Nursery Rhyme 5 Little monkey jumping on the bed. It would be lovely if parents could sing this song with thier children to help with the children's counting skills. During the song you could ask them, 'how many are left now?' Fowllow this link for the song:

First week back- I see porridge!

Our book of the week is Goldilocks and the three Bears. The children have loved taking on the roles of the three bears and acting out the story using masks and other role play props. Also the children have been fascinated with the porridge oats. They have explored pouring and filling the porridge into three different sized bowls, from the story. They have talked about which bear gets more porridge and which bear gets the least porridge. We have began to discuss why the bears need and get different amounts of porridge.
