In Nursery the children were learning how to program the Bee Bots. They pressed the control buttons before pressing Go then watched as the Bee Bots moved as instructed. The children had a lot of fun watching them move.
In Nursery the children have been practising their races for Sports Day next week. Everyone is taking part in two races. These include running races, balancing a bean bag on the head race, a costume race, an obstacle race and a bat and bean bag race.
Today we looked at double consonants in Phase 2 – ck,ff,ll and ss – and words where they can be found at the end. The children helped blend the sounds orally to hear the words before the pictures were revealed.
This week the children in Nursery have been listening to the story ‘Whatever Next’ by Jill Murphy. We talked about what the bear packed and thought about why he chose these. Then the children thought about what they would pack to go to the moon, drawing these and talking about their choices.
The children made cards to say thank you to someone special in their lives who helps them and takes care of them.
This week the children in Nursery have been listening to the story ‘Here Come the Aliens” by Colin McNaughton. They talked about the different aliens and chose a favourite, drew a picture and described the alien.
This week we have focused on the letter ‘j’ and the children have listened for this sound at the beginning of words. They also listened to the sounds in words beginning with j such as jam and jug to help blend them to hear the words. Then they had a go at listening for the sounds to help spell the words. We also practised forming the letters in the air and on whiteboards.
In Nursery today the children learnt the phoneme ‘ck’ and that the two letters together made the sound stronger, hearing it and saying it only once. They also learnt these letters are not found at the beginning of words and listened for words with this sound at the end.
In Nursery today the children practised forming numerals up to 10 in our mark making books. We used our formation rhymes to help us.
