5 Currant Buns
The children have been focusing on the Number Rhyme 5 Currant Buns. We practised counting currant buns and comparing amounts, thinking about which child had more and which child had less currant buns. We then made our own currant buns, we looked at the ingredients we needed and then carefully followed the recipe.
1,2,3,4,5 once I caught a fish alive.
We have been learning about the Nursery rhyme 1,2,3,4,5 once I caught a fish alive. We focused on recognising numbers to 10, using our fingers to represent 10 and counting 10 objects. We developed our vocabulary for underwater animals, learning the names of sharks, turtles, starfish, octopus, jellyfish and crabs. Additionally, thinking about describing these animals and what they look like.
5 Cheeky Monkeys
The children have been focussing on the number rhyme 5 little monkeys swinging in a tree. We continued to focus on counting to 5, recognising numbers to 5 and counting up to 5 objects. We also thought about positional language to describe where the Monkeys are in the tree, such as next to, on top, under, behind and in front.
5 Little Ducks
In Nursery our learning has been based on the number rhyme 5 little ducks. We have been using the rhyme to practise representing numbers on our fingers and to help us recognise our numerals 1-5 and put them in the correct order. We also went for a visit to the school's pond to see of we could find any ducks.
