Busy, busy, busy!

Hello everyone,

We really have been busy this week learning about number 1, reading our Here We Are story and learning the routines and boundaries at school.  Here are a few images that will give you some insight on what we’ve been up to.  Everything that we do has a learning context; it’s not just playing!

     Finding shapes and colours on our large carpet and moving our bodies building our gross motor skills.

 

 

 

Filling containers and using language to describe full, empty, half full.

 

 

 

 

  Making cakes for Mummy which builds our fine motor skills and helps us to write.

  Banging the drum for Nursery!

We listen to different musical genres and investigate further the ones the children like best.  This half term it will be reggae and country music (some of the songs from last week’s blog are ‘loosely’ in these styles).  Bob Marley  is currently the children’s favourite, particularly Three Little Birds (the children have exceptionally good taste) .  We’ve also listened to Jimmy Cliff so far.  Over the year we will listen to jazz, classical, classic ‘pop’ such as ABBA (one of Mrs Howe’s favourites), polka, bhangra and many more!

Until next time, do good looking for adventures, clean your ears out for good listening and turn your noggins (brains) on for good learning.

Take care and stay safe,

Mrs Howe, Mr Salih, Mrs Mitzman, Mrs Hill and Mrs Bence
