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!

EMM – 30-50/40-60

Reading To The Bears

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.
