Whatever Next

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.

Initial sound j

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.
