Outdoor fun!

On Wednesday afternoon, although it was a little cold, the children put on their coats and had LOTS of fun practising their mark making skills with the chalk. It was great to see some of the children’s pictures, numbers and writing. The children were all showing each other their drawings and practising their listening and communication skills.

Week 4 – Jack and Jill

I am SOOOO proud of my Nursery children this week!Β 

They have all worked incredibly hard to learn not only one, but two verses of the rhyme Jack and Jill. They paired the words together with some great actions and sang their little hearts out πŸ™‚

Thank you once again to all the parents and carers who are helping their children to learn the rhymes at home – it is really paying off as it is great to see the children’s confidence growing each week.

Week 2 – Mary, Mary

This week saw the children learn the rhyme Mary, Mary as part of our 9 Rhyme Challenge. The children have worked hard to learn the words and simple actions and are really enjoying the challenge. Lots of parents and carers have said their children are practicing singing the rhymes at home which is fantastic πŸ™‚

Keep posted next week for Week 3 of the challenge.

The 9 Rhyme Challenge

This week the Nursery children have started their 9 Rhyme Challenge. Early Years staff understand the importance of speech, language and communication skills and we are actively seeking to develop these skills through the use of Nursery rhymes.

Singing Nursery rhymes is a great fun way to further develop your child’s:

  1. Confidence
  2. Listening and concentration skills
  3. Memory skills
  4. Knowledge and understanding of language
  5. Ability to tune into sounds to support early reading

Week 1 saw the children learn the rhyme ‘I’m a little teapot’. I think Nursery Murphy did a great job. What do you think?….

I want to take this opportunity to thank all the parents and carers for their support in helping the children to learn the rhymes at home πŸ™‚

Tune in next week for week 2 of the 9 Rhyme Challenge.
