The Bare Trees Rhyme Party (REAL Event)
This half term, the REAL project has focused on the development of Oral Language. We held A 'Rhyme Party' for each of our Reception Classes and their families.
We had a great time singing and joining in with the actions to lots of different nursery rhymes.
Then we had fun making props to go with our favourite nursery rhymes such as Twinkle Twinkle stars and Incy Wincy spider hats. We had a music corner where the children could join in singing nursery rhymes and play their favourite musical instruments. We finished our session with a short story and group rhyme session. Some children were even confident to lead, by choosing their favourite nursery rhyme to sing and act out the actions to the group.
REAL Home Visits
When the events in school were completed Mrs Raftery and Mrs Jordon enjoyed spending some time visiting the homes of the families that we work more closely with as part of the REAL project.
We had great fun making our own play-dough and pretending that they were 'current buns.' Then we sang 'Five Current Buns.' We had some pennies and we acted out the nursery rhyme with the children playing the part of the 'shop keeper.'
When it was time to go, the children were given a Nursery Rhyme scrap book and some felt tip pens and a CD of Julia Donaldson rhyming stories to listen to at home or when out and about in the car with their parents.
As always, Mrs Raftery and Mrs Jordon were made to feel very welcome in the homes of the families that we work with and we thoroughly enjoyed our visits. It was also great to hear that the children had made play dough with their mums and dads after our visits too.
