World Nursey Rhyme Week – Day 1 

As part of World Nursery Rhyme Week the children in Reception will be learning a nursery rhyme each day and taking part in activities linking to that rhyme. This helps develop the children’s communication and language, literacy skills,  maths and helps them to develop socially and emotionally.
The rhyme we focused on today was Bobby Shafto. The children enjoyed learning the song and coming up with actions to help us remember it .

The children then made telescopes to help them look out onto the sea and some children used boxes to make a boat!

Maps

Today some of the children in reception designed a map to help Little Red Riding Hood find her Grandmas house. We worked together to think of things she might come across on her journey and then drew them on our map. We then talked about how she would get there.

#RS said “She needs to go over the bridge.”

#RE said “She can’t swim in the water so she will have to go around it.”


Reading Books

Reception received a special delivery in class today.  All of the children each received a reading pack which consisted of a book and a guide for parents/carers to help with reading at home. The children were all very excited to take their new books home and do some reading and talking about the pictures with their adults.
