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!
In Reception, we have been learning about different shapes. Today some of the children used the shapes to create their own shape patterns. When i asked the children what shapes they had used in their patterns some of them were able to tell me that they had used a hexagon and how many sides and corners it had!
