Nursery – Humpty Dumpty

Humpty Dumpty has come to visit Nursery.

This week we have chosen “Humpty Dumpty” as our special rhyme of the week.

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall.

Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.

All the king’s horses and all the king’s men.

Couldn’t put Humpty together again.

Our teachers have been asking us lots of questions about Humpty Dumpty, for example:

“Where is Humpty Dumpty?” 

“What happened to him?”

“How can we help him?”

“What does Humpty Dumpty look like inside?”

So, to find the answers to these questions we have been exploring, investigating and experimenting.

We built a wall just like Humpty Dumpty’s and watched what happened to an egg when it fell.

Then using our fine motor skills, we peeled, cut up and ate the egg.

 

 

 

 

Do you like eggs? our teachers asked us and we replied “Yes, I like eggs.”

And “No, I don’t like eggs”

We carefully coloured In Humpty using all our favourite colours.

Then practised our scissor skills cutting him up and sticking him back together again.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Can you draw Humpty Dumpty? 

We can.

 

 

 

 

 

 

And we even had a Humpty Dumpty egg and spoon race. Look how hard we are concentrating, making sure we don’t drop our eggs.

 

 

 

 

What fun we had working as a team with a variety of constructions to build walls………………

……………..and using role play to sing the rhyme all together.

  “We love Humpty Dumpty”

Reception B – “Commotion in the Ocean”

In Reception B, we have loved learning all about our topic “Under The Sea”.

Having enjoyed reading the story, “Commotion in the Ocean” by Giles Andreae, the children eagerly set about researching and finding out about all the strange and curious sea-creatures from the story. In particular, they were thrilled to learn about “the most amazing creatures” from the part of the story that focuses on the deep-sea.

In doing so, the breadth of vocabulary the children acquired was phenomenal and the children wanted to show everybody by making their own class video; each child confidently reciting their favourite part of the story.

Wow…Reception B, we are so proud of you!

 

Pre 2 Little Bears: Conversations in English

On our first day back in school we had a fun time! We began a new story called “Dinosaur Dinner” by Sue Hendra.  The children then began to “draw” dinosaurs amongst other pictures in the salt trays. We had wonderful conversations in English about what we were doing and understood what our teacher was saying.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We used our fingers and sticks to make our pictures; helping to develop our hand-eye coordination and the control of our fine motor skills. We are beginning to make representations and developing our ability to form patterns and shapes, which is a pre-requisite to writing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Even though we are only between the ages of two and three, we understand what our teacher is saying and some of us can talk to her about our picture. Here is a short video of the children having a conversation with her; displaying their understanding, following the theme of the conversation and developing their ability to speak in English.

We are so clever at speaking and listening!

Pre 1 Little Bears: Winter colours

We are beginning to explore the season of Winter. We used the colour blue to do some painting in wintry colours.

We are working very hard; holding our paintbrush, making marks, concentrating on what we are doing and we can all repeat the name of the colour blue!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When our painting dried we then added to it using blue stickers. This also helps our hand-eye coordination as it can be very tricky to remove the stickers and stick them on.

What a wonderful time we had playing and working together!

Happy New Year! New “Early Explorers” Toddler Group

Nursery : “n” is for nursery and nurse and nest…………..

In our Nursery class we have been having fun learning all about the “n” sound. We have had a nurse role play area and have developed our imagination and social skills.

We have done activities to enhance our fine motor skills; using chopsticks to pick up noodles, cutting  birds to stick into our nests and hammering nails to make shape pictures.“Look at how many noodles I have picked up!”
                                                                                               
 “These noodles are stringy.”

“Tap, tap, tap, banging the nails.”  

We loved learning about how birds make nests and experimented making our own nests with straw, leaves and twigs………….

 


…………..and even made some out of chocolate.

Yummy!

Yummy!

 

 

Reception A: Handa’s Surprise

Reception A have been looking at Handa’s Surprise by Eileen Browne as their class story. We retold the story using some animal masks and fruit props and wrote some simple words and phrases relating to the story.

“Carefully does it!”

 

“Look, no hands!”

 

 

 

 

 

“I can write a sentence about Handa’s Surprise.”

 

 

Handa’s Surprise is set in a village in Africa. We were able to look at other areas of the curriculum and had a fun-packed African week. We made some African inspired patterns, did some paintings of Handa for our display board and made some sunset pictures with animal silhouettes on. We even tasted some of the fruits that appear in the story and described them. We also looked at some African rhythms and tried to play them on djembes and danced to a song all about animals from Africa.Click on the following links to see the djembe playing and the animal song.

This was a fun topic, that allowed us to cover all areas of the curriculum. The children were so inspired by this story that there were many examples in their own free play such as making fruits from plasticine, making patterns from shapes and role playing Handa carrying the basket to her friend Akeyo.

 

 

Well done Reception A!

Little Bears Pre 1 and Pre 2: We love stories!

 

It’s not only about Christmas at the moment, Christmas is also a special time for families. We have been exploring “What is a family?” and have listened to stories about different types of families, including animal families.

In the Little Bears class we love stories!  Our Pre 1 Nursery class loves looking at books and has just begun listening to stories told by the teacher.

 

 

We are learning how to turn the pages of a book.

 

 

 

 

Look at the happy baby in this book!

 

 

 

We may also have pets in our family.

“Woof! Woof!” says the dog.

 

 

 

Our Pre 2 Nursery love listening to stories as well, as you can see by their expressions! Stories can take you to an imaginary world where you can be who you want to be; offering a world of fantasy or reflecting real life and evoking emotions and reactions.

They are an important part of language development in young children; helping communication, developing listening skills, extending  vocabulary, developing memory and motivating reading. But most of all they give us pleasure and are FUN.

We have listened to the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears and reenacted it in our own way and through play. Developing our mathematical concepts of size: “big”, “medium” and “little” and quantity: “How many is ‘three’?”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We have listened to the story of The Three Little Pigs and then built houses of “bricks”, sometimes outside, while developing our social skills and collaborating together on a joint project.

 

 

We have had great fun acting like the wolf and blowing houses down.

 

 

“Little pigs, little pigs. Can I come in ?”

“Oh, no! Not by the hair of our chinny, chin, chins we won’t let you in.”

“Then I’ll huff and I’ll puff and I’ll blow your house in.”

 

Even at the young age of two and three years, children are able to recall and “read” stories that really capture their interest and fire up their imagination. Click on the link to watch and listen to one of our young “readers” who was in Pre 2 in June of this year. He absolutely adored the story that we read in class “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt” by Michael Rosen.

The child in the video was motivated  to look at this book, after listening to the story in class, and began “reading” to himself spontaneously. The teacher overheard him and began recording. It is absolutely amazing!
