The Colour Monster

How do you feel today?

This week in Nursery we have been thinking about our feelings. We have been reading the story of 'The Colour Monster' by Anna Llnes. At the beginning of this story the colour monster is all mixed up and confused because his feelings are all jumbled together. Throughout the story his friend helps him to sort his feelings into different coloured jars. This story has helped the children to discuss and label their emotions. The children have talked about what your body feels like when you are happy, sad, angry, scared, calm and in love. The children have enjoyed exploring the different colours from the story and using them to paint their own colour monsters; we have explored how to make different shades of each of the colours. For our Maths learning we have been focusing on colours and seeing if the children are able to name them. We have also started our Physical Phonics sessions and the children have enjoyed making the different sounds of animals and different types of transport.
