Good Morning Nursery!
A little while ago we focused on lots of stories about caterpillars and butterflies. I wonder which one was your favourite?
This week I have found another story about a different creature that changes. I wonder if you can guess what it is?
It is a Frog!
This week we will be leaning about the life cycle of frogs. We will be focusing on the story The Teeny Weeny Tadpole by Sheridan Cain and Jack Tickle.
Listen to the story:
Here are some questions to discuss with your family:
“What happened to the tadpole in this story?”
“How did the tadpole change in the story?”
“What did you notice about the fish the tadpole met?”
“Can you remember the names of the different fish?”
“What happened at the end of the story?”
Parents talk to your children about growth, linking it to their own growth through questioning –
How do we know we have grown?
Why do we need new clothes/shoes?
What keeps growing and needs cutting? (Hair, nails etc)
What do babies do and need?
How have you changed since being a baby – what can you do now?
This week we will be continuing to introduce the children to early phonics - letter sounds.
In Nursery we use the Jolly Phonics rhymes and actions to help the children to remember each sound. We will introduce two sounds each week.
This week the sounds are 'c' and 'k'
Continue practising this phonics song:
Watch these Jolly phonics videos regularly and practise the songs and actions.
Here are some videos to help your child write the letters that match these sounds.
This week we are going to be doing lots of different types of Maths work. I hope that you have got plenty of energy!
You have heard the story of ‘The Teeny Weeny Tadpole’. I hope you enjoyed the story.
All of the animals in the story can jump. Some can jump high and some can jump far. Poor tadpole has to wait until the end of the story until he can jump.
Your challenge this week is to investigate and measure jumps!
Find out a little bit more all about frogs.
This website is very good and explains things clearly.
Can you make a frog puppet or model?
Remember to show us your lovely work on the Nursery Blog!
