We have our tadpoles in nursery and they are growing fast. Here are some books you might like to read together.
Our children have become very interested in Space. Here are some books you might like to share with your child this week.
As Springtime is here we thought you might like to read these books about growing with your child.
As we are coming up to Easter and we may begin to see the first signs of Spring after the Beast from the East, you might want to read some of these stories with your children.
This week will be Sharing Week so I hope everyone has signed up to do some fantastic things with our children. We are going to put the group time planning on our website from now on so have a look below and see if you would like to read the same stories, sing the same songs and talk about the things we are doing.
Big book – Peace at Last
Read story, encouraging children to recall it when finished. Talk about the noises that we can hear in our house or outside
Discussing feelings using the puppet
Puppets to act out a situation which depicts them fighting over a dressing up costume. Encourage the children to talk about what the puppet might be feeling and how we want him to feel. How can we change things so that our puppet feels happier? Children may want to talk about rules and boundaries to support the discussion and to use in the future
Singing familiar songs
Using the book “Round and Round the garden”
Maths – supporting one to one number correspondence
Play the game “Pegs on the Plate” with the group, observing counting and one to one correspondence
Singing familiar Nursery Rhymes
Sing with the children, choosing favourites as well as unfamiliar rhymes. Perhaps ask the children to make a list of their five favourite nursery rhymes?
This week we are giving the children the opportunity to choose their own favourite stories. Discuss with your child what they like to read. This will support what we are doing at school. Here are some of the ones they have come up with so far.
This week we are concentrating on the Little Red Riding Hood story and games linked to this.
