Painting Nursery Rhyme Pictures

This morning during our Art and Design group time the children painted some lovely pictures of their favourite nursery rhymes. We talked about different nursery rhymes we knew and then they chose which one was their favourite. They thought about the different coloured paints they would need to use for their pictures and what they were going to paint for their chosen nursery rhyme.

This week the children had the opportunity to use the interactive white board to retell the nursery rhyme of Jack and Jill. Most of the children were able to use their fingers to drag and drop the icons where they thought they needed to go.

Some children could retell the whole rhyme and recognised what a ‘well’ was. Only a few could tell me how to get the water out of the well and some gave a couples of answers to : can we drink the water? ” no we can’t because it’s got rain water in it” :- “no because it might have sea creatures in it.”

5 little ducks

This week for maths group time the children have been singing the nursery rhyme 5 little ducks. As they have been singing the song they have been recording the sums on their whiteboards. This has helped the children to understand the concept of taking one or more away each time and counting down.

Sequencing Nursery Rhymes

This week in the transition room the children have been using the interactive whiteboard to help Miss Lipyeat sequence different pictures from Nursery Rhymes after she got them in a bit of a muddle! The children sang the different nursery rhymes first and then took it in turns to work together choosing the right pictures to put in order. The children used their finger on the board to move and swap the pictures into the right place.  They did very well and were able to sequence Humpty Dumpty, Jack and Jill, Little Miss Muffett, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and Little Bo Peep.
