The Naughty Bus by Jan and Jerry Oke

What do you think the Naughty Bus would do at your house?

Many of our Nursery children have been fascinated by different types of transport recently. This has been inspired by lots of the new toys that they received at Christmas. Some of them are very proud of themselves because they have been given big bikes with pedals and they are very proud of themselves for being so grown up. So this week we decided to read one of Annabel's favourite books 'The Naughty Bus' by Jan and Jerry Oke. In this book a child is given a present which turns out to be a toy bus. The book then shows the adventure that the bus has around the child's house; but some of the things that the bus does are not very sensible. He makes a terrible mess by driving through the child's dinner, he drives over the dog and he gets too close to the pond and falls in. The children were inspired by the story to draw their own story maps to show the adventures that the bus could have in Nursery. We have then taken photographs to make our own Naughty Bus stories. In Maths we have been learning all about the number one and different ways to represent it. The children have been sorting objects and pictures to say if they are 'one' or 'not one.' In phonics this week we were thinking about animals that begin with the 'p' phoneme sound. The children are all gaining confidence when thinking about the initial phoneme sound of their names.
