The Little Red Hen

Published on Friday 16 October 2020 by Miss Dickinson.

This week our story has been 'The Little Red Hen' so we have done lots of activities around this book. We talked about being kind and how we can do this to our friends in Nursery. We made some kind hands and wrote on what we can do to show this. Some lovely examples of what the children said were 'share the toys', 'say nice things to our friends', 'help tidy up', 'smile' and 'be nice'. What kind children we have in our Nursery! We also looked at rhyming words this week and the children blew us away with their skills. We gave them a word and they had to choose the object that rhymed with that word. Considering this was the first time we have touched on it they did a good job, so if you would like to do some rhyming at home that would be great!

We have also focused on shapes this week in Nursery for Maths and wow some of the children impressed us with their shape knowledge. Not only did some children name lots of the shapes but they were able to talk about their properties too. You can ask the children what shapes they have been learning and do a shape hunt at home and see if they impress you as much as they did us.

Our little rays of sunshine this week are Declan Irwin for naming shapes and being able to talk about their properties. Theo Graydon for settling brilliantly at Nursery and joining in with focused activities. Francesca Mayhew for impressing Miss Manifold with her shape knowledge. Grace Tanner for always being a fantastic friend and setting a good example to her peers. She also tried particularly hard with her rhyming skills. Finally, Toby Wallace for impressing Miss Gill with his shape knowledge. Well done to you all, what superstars!
