This week we have enjoyed singing lots of nursery rhymes. The children have brought in books, jigsaws and objects to talk about their favourite nursery rhymes and it has also been great to find out what your favourite nursery rhymes were when you were growing up.
On Monday, our song of the day was 5 Currant Buns. The number 5 was also our new number of the week. The children had fun baking some buns.
On Tuesday, our song of the day was Humpty Dumpty. The children enjoyed sharing their favourite nursery rhymes and books, jigsaws and objects from home.
We also did a very excited science experiment. Professor Myers came to visit and told us that somebody was pushing Humpty Dumpty off the wall and we needed to find a way to protect him! We experimented with different materials to see which material would protect him the most. Before dropping the egg we predicted (a sensible guess) what might happen. The children also had some great ideas of what else we could use to protect Humpty Dumpty.
- “We could drop him on a cushion then he won’t break.”
- “We could wrap him in an apron.”
- “We could wrap him in paper.”
On Wednesday, the song of the day was A Sailor Went To Sea. The children enjoyed playing hand games together.
On Thursday, the song of the day was I’m a little teapot. The children had lots of fun experimenting with different musical instruments when singing the song.
On Friday, the song of the day was Round and Round the Garden. The children enjoyed making circle movements during squiggle whilst we wiggle. Squiggle whilst we wiggle is a great way to develop our gross motor movements that help with letter formation. On a Friday we also do dough disco – this is a great way to develop our fine motor skills that help with writing.
What a busy week we have had!
