What a fantastic first week it has been! They have all settled amazingly! Little Elvers have had so much fun! Our focus this week has been nursery rhymes. We have been focusing on ‘Humpty Dumpty’, ‘5 Little Ducks’ and ‘Old McDonald had a Farm’. Our books have linked to our rhymes. They were ‘Little Lumpty’, ‘Duck in the Truck’ and ‘A Squash and a Squeeze’.
We have been problem solving how to put Humpty together again, building our own walls from a range of materials and investigating if different materials can prevent Humpty breaking when he falls off the wall.
Little Elvers have enjoyed acting out rhymes with musical instruments, creating role play using Old McDonalds Farm small world and using paint, pens and printing resources to create their own art master pieces.
We have been using the 5 little ducks to help us to group objects, look at numbers and recite numbers in order. We have also been using water play to explore and problem solve.
It has been lovely to return to nursery and find our blackberry bush is full of delicious blackberries. The children have really enjoyed collecting them and cooking chocolate and blackberry muffins!
Throughout the week we have been exploring fine motor activities. We have been threading beads on to pippets, using scissors, threading laces and rolling balls.
We are all looking forward to lots more fun next week!
