Good morning Nursery!
We hope you all had a lovely half term break.
This half term we will be looking at a series of rhymes and stories based around the theme ‘Transport’. We will be learning about boats, trains, buses and lots more!
This week we are looking at Boats.

Watch the story Mr Gumpy’s Outing by John Burningham on YouTube and talk to your family about the story.

Can you write some of the letters in your name?
Use as many different writing tools and sensory resources as you can.

Practise your counting with these warm up songs.
Can you use your toys, farm animals or pictures to order the sequence the animals went into the boat.?
