The children have a had a really busy week. We have been reading the book The Emperor's Penguin and finding out lots of facts about them. This will help the children next week as we write a Non-Fiction book together all about Penguins. We have been looking at the number 7 and finding different ways of making 7. We have counted forwards and backwards and found 1 more and 1 less of a number. In the outdoor area we were finding out about some more animals and making places for them to live.
Nursery enjoyed playing the instruments and listening to the sounds in our daily phonics session. They remembered the names of the instruments like chime bar, maraca and bells.
Next week we are looking at the number 8 and our nursery rhyme of the week is Incy Wincy Spider. We will be singing it every day and making a lovely display for our corridor. We are also looking forward to Little Zoo visiting us on Tuesday and having our Inside Out day on Thursday where we can wear an item of clothing inside out to highlight Mental Health Week. In EYFS we will be looking at what makes us happy,sad and angry and what we can do when we have these feelings.
Please keep up your reading at home and filling in your track each time you have read to an adult.
