Reception have had a great time taking part in World Nursery Rhyme Week. The children have learned different songs throughout the week, created pictures with paint, telescopes and even made a boat! Today the children dressed up as their favourite nursery rhyme character. Can you guess which nursery rhyme they are from?
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!
Today, in Reception, we have been learning a song about Little Red Riding Hood which links with our English topic. First we learned the words then the children helped us to come up with actions to help remember the song.
Reception got to see a real fire engine today and have a talk with the firemen about how they help people. The children had a look inside the firetruck and learned how it is never safe to play with matches or fires.
Reception have had lots of fun today learning how to make bread. The children learned how the dough has to rest and get bigger before they can knead and shape it. The children first washed their hands before starting and then used the palms of their hands to stretch, roll and manipulate the dough. Some of the children were surprised how sticky the dough was! The children then made bread rolls, plaited the bread and created a small loaf which was to be cooked and served to the children in school this week.
Today, these children decided they would read to the teddies during continuous provision. As we have been looking at Goldilocks, the children independently chose a book about bears and began to recite the story from memory.
