Nursery Rhyme Week – Day 3

The rhyme we have been exploring today was called Old King Cole. This was a rhyme that we were not very familiar with, however, after a few practises we soon remembered the words and the tune!

We loved performing the rhymes we have been learning so far at the Stay and Play with our parents and carers. We then enjoyed creating our own crowns out of collage materials so we could be just like Old King Cole!

Here are Morning Nursery:

“What does Old King Cole wear on his head?”

#en “a hat”

“It looks a bit like a hat, but we call it something else starting with a ‘c’ sound…”

#gk “he wears a crown!”

Here are afternoon Nursery:

In reference to Old King Cole, #tw said “I think he lives in the castle”

What have you made? #ra “a king crown”

#na “I want to wear the king hat too”

Talk Boost

These children are taking part in the Talk Boost intervention with Mrs Webb. This intervention focuses on communication and language and aims to build up the children’s listening and attention, understanding and speaking.

In these photographs, the children were learning about the following objectives; with our eyes we can look at it and say what we see, with our ears we can hear, with our hands we can touch/feel, with our tongues we can taste/eat, with our noses we can smell.

Active Learning

In Nursery we work together

Both Nursery classes have been working very hard in making relationships with different members of their class. We have been talking a lot about how to be a good friend, and we know that sharing and taking it in turns are some ways of how we can be one of these.

The following pictures are some lovely examples of how the children have been working together in their play.
