It’s been another busy week in Nursery! Humpty Dumpty has been our Nursery rhyme of the week and we have been having lots of fun making making up new rhymes such as Humpty Dumpty sat on a head – Humpty Dumpty went to bed… The theme has continued with painting Humpty Dumpty and completing jigsaws and building walls with different construction sets. The children also practised their self help skills and fine motor skills when they helped prepare scrambled eggs and buttered their own toast for an eggy feast.
The weather has been ‘varied’ this week, but the children still want to be outside. We had a wonderful windy day, so we took out our streamers, burning off energy and using big arm and shoulder movements.
Inside the classroom, the new mobilo construction set has been really popular. Some fantastic vehicles have been built and then played with. A makeshift reading den has also been used well as a cosy place to enjoy a book. Lots of children are expressing their likes for certain books and stories and we have responded this week to a child’s particular interest by providing a ‘Dear Zoo’ interactive book activity. If your child has a particular favourite story please let us know and we can set up different interactive book activities.
