Nursery Rhyme Week

Can you sing your favourite Nursery Rhyme to your family?

We have had lots of fun and games in Reception this week. It is World Nursery Rhyme Week! We have been busy learning some new and revising some well known rhymes. The children were in good voice for singing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Five little Speckled Frogs, 1 2 3 4 5 and B-I-N-G-O. A new one for some adults and the children was The Big Ship Sails on the Ally Ally-Oh!  Please ask the children to sing those rhymes to you - they really are very good at it! Old MacDonald had lots of animals on the farm and the children used their phonic knowledge to label pictures of the animals. They have also been writing shopping lists in the home corner. The classes now have model museums. If a child makes a model with lego or blocks or any material they choose, they can keep it on show for the week if they write a label with their name and what they have made. We have had quite a few models already this week. In Maths we learnt about Positional Language so,' Where is the monkey?' -  the monkey's under the bed (  On Friday, many of the children came dressed as a Nursery Rhyme character and some of them sang their rhyme in front of the class - how brave!
