This week our story is called Leaf Man by Lois Ehlert.
When we read the book we are going to be thinking about words which we are not really sure about - maybe we might not have heard these words before or don't know what they mean. Look out for the words being sent out on the app or Tapestry so you can talk about them at home.
We are going to be making our very own leaf men and leaf animals this week. To help us develop our fine motor control and use of tools we are going to be using scissors to cut leaves. The grown ups in Nursery might need to help with this to show us how to hold scissors correctly. This is something you could practice at home as well.
In Phonics we are going to be using instruments to create rhythms. We are going to be encouraging the children to copy simple rhythms.
Number Song of the week
This week our song is going to be 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 Once I caught a fish alive.....
In small group time we are taking early steps towards counting objects with 1:1 correspondence with the children knowing that the final number we say when counting objects is the amount of objects there is.
It's all about 5 - concept of 5
This week we are going to be finding out about the number 5. We will be looking at the numeral, looking at ways of representing '5' - on our fingers, on paper or with objects.
We will be looking for things that are in 5's. We might find 5 leaves, 5 wheels or 5 friends - if we look very hard we might see the numeral '5' around the Nursery.
We would love to see any photographs of your child on a '5' hunt at home!
