World Nursery Rhyme Week 18/11/21

What is your favourite Nursery Rhyme and why?

This week the Nursery children have really enjoyed participating in World Nursery Rhyme Week. We started the celebration by all coming to school on Monday dressed as our favourite Nursery Rhyme characters. Lots of the children 'Wowed' us with their confidence and rhyming ability when they were able to recite their chosen rhyme in front of the rest of the class. We had lots of different Nursery Rhyme characters represented including sleeping bunnies, doctors from Miss Polly had a dolly, the cow who jumped over the moon, baa baa white sheep, Incey Wincey spiders, twinkling stars, the muffin man, Old MacDonald and many more. Over the rest of the week we have enjoyed singing lots of Nursery Rhymes and we have focused on learning 'Down in the Jungle' which many of the children were less familiar with. We have enjoyed playing with different animals in our jungle swamp and the children were fascinated when they got to see how it was made. They helped us to make green jelly and confidently talked about the changes that they could see when the hot water was added to the jelly. For our maths learning we have been using size vocabulary to talk about the sizes of the different animals and trying to make houses and dens that they can fit inside.
