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

Autumn Investigation

Today in Reception, the children went outside to investigate and find signs of Autumn. The children first talked about the different colours they could see and then went and collected some of the leaves on the ground. We discussed how the leaves are different now that they have fallen.

Focused Activity

Next Steps – To create a piece of art with the leaves that were collected.
