World Book Day
Week Beginning 1st March 2021
This week in nursery the children have been doing lots of work on the story 'The Enormous Crocodile' by Roald Dahl. We listened to the story on YouTube and used words to describe what the characters were like, how they looked and their personality. We drew a picture of our favourite character and either wrote a sentence about them or told and adult a sentence. The children recalled the clever tricks that the crocodile did when he tried to eat the children, they gave me some lovely sentences to write down and then we ordered the pictures of the story from the beginning to the end.
We talked about different ways to find out information about a crocodile to make a fact file, Emily said " Mrs Boulton could get her phone and say hey google do you know all about crocodiles." Moses told us that "they have long bodies and four legs", Amelia said "they have long tails" and Elsie said "they can swim".
We made a crocodile from junk and used non standard measurement to measure the length of the crocodile, we also ordered the three crocodiles from the longest to the shortest and we painted pictures of the characters.
We joined in will Mrs Cahalan's story time on zoom and made hats with our favourite story book character on. We've had lots of fun this week.
Week Beginning 22nd February 2021
This week in nursery the children were given three skills to work on holding scissors correctly and cutting, writing their name using cursive writing and putting on and doing up their coats. They have worked so hard.
This half term our topic in nursery has been 'Once Upon A Time', the children have been looking at five different stories - Frozen, Pirates Love Underpants, Trolls, Supertato and Little Red Riding Hood.
We've had lots of fun getting creative as you will see from the photographs .
In Literacy we have described story settings and characters, we have looked at what happened at the beginning, middle and end of each story and made storyboards and story paths. The children have helped to write sentences for story pictures and we used the characters from each story to help us with our counting.
We have had lots of fun singing and dancing along to Frozen and Trolls, we became Pirates and Superheros as we copied the actions from the songs and during the last week we all came dressed as a character from one of our stories - we had Elsa, Anna and Kristoff from Frozen, Poppy from Trolls, lots of Pirates including one pirate with her underpants over her leggings and lots of Superheros.
