Personal, Social, Emotional Development.
We will conclude our learning around the NSPCC, PANTS Campaign. We will sing along with Pantosaurus, design our own pants and remember the PANTS rules;
Privates are private,
Always remember your body belongs to you,
No means no,
Talk about secrets that upset you,
Speak up, someone can help.
In addition we will explore some safety rules inspired by our text; considering, is it safe to go into somebody else's house without an adult and the safety rules we must follow when cooking porridge on an open fire.
Physical Development, Gross Motor.
Each day we will complete short burst energy activities to keep us healthy and to improve our co-ordination. On Tuesday morning we will have our P.E. session and on Wednesday we will have our Sports Day morning. Please ensure children come dressed in appropriate clothing and suitable outdoor footwear such as trainers as this session will be delivered outdoors on the school playground or on the field. In the event of good weather please apply sun cream before arriving at Nursery and include a sun cap in your child's bag.
Physical Development, Fine Motor.
We will continue to develop our accuracy when using mark making tools with a focus this week on letter formation and copying our name using our name cards. We will practice large scale movements, then practice the same patterns on large sheets of paper as part of our Squiggle while you Wiggle routines. We will continue to develop our finger muscles through our Dough Disco movements. We will develop our hand/eye co-ordination by working with a steady hand when we use the small pegs to pick up using a pincer movement and place into our peg boards.
Communication and Language; Word of the week, first.
Reading: We will name and discuss the characters in the text and the story settings as we read the book and re-enact the story using the stick puppets, story spoons and role play masks. The children will have access to their favourite stories as well as a rich collection of traditional stories that we will explore over the coming weeks.
Writing: We will practice writing our own names and other words found on a postcard such as "To," "Love from," and a message to the Bears. Children will create their own postcards drawing a picture on one side and a message to the Bears on the other. Children will have access to mark making materials in the role play area as they take breakfast orders at the Three Bear's cottage and write shopping lists to replace the food eaten by Goldilocks.
Our rhyme of the week is; When Goldilocks went to the house of the Bear's. We will sing and add actions to the song. Children will also have access to props when singing the rhyme at the story and rhyme table.
Older children moving into Reception Class in September will listen to an adult sounding out and blending a word and will identify what word has been blended using their listening skills, they will then be encouraged to sound out the words themselves.
Younger children remaining in nursery in September will explore different ways of playing the instruments then will create the same sound with the instrument as their friend. They will send two sounds around the circle copying them in the correct sequence.
We will copy, continue and create our own patterns using the plastic bear toys and use pictures of the Bear's and Goldilocks to copy, continue and create patterns. We will spot errors and make changes to ensure the patterns make sense. Our main focus will be on ab patterns; Big Bear, Little Bear, Big Bear, Little Bear but children will also be challenged to create abb patterns; Goldilocks, Baby Bear, Baby Bear, Goldilocks, Baby Bear, Baby Bear, bba patterns; Goldilocks, Goldilocks, Baby Bear, Goldilocks, Goldilocks, Baby Bear, and abc patterns; Daddy Bear, Mummy Bear, Baby Bear, Daddy Bear, Mummy Bear, Baby Bear depending on the children's individual ability.
Understanding the World.
We will make our own Porridge and cook it on an open fire during our Forest School sessions. We will observe the changes to the ingredients as we add milk and heat the food. We will explore the taste of the Porridge and experiment with different toppings.
Expressive Arts and Design
In the Creative Area we will make an observational painting of a bear using a range of colours and choices of different sized brushes. In the Construction Area we will make three different sized chairs and beds. In the role play area the children will act out the story using a range of story telling props.
Our rhyme of the week is, When Goldilocks went to the house of the Bear's, please continue to practise this rhyme at home with your children.
