This half term our topic in Nursery is Number Rhymes, each week our learning will be focused on a different number rhyme. We will be using the number rhymes to help us begin to recognise our numbers, learn to 1:1 count objects, match numerals to a quantities and practise counting out a number of objects from a larger group.
5 Little Ducks
This week 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 if we could find any ducks.
5 Currant Buns
This week the children have been focusing on the number rhyme 5 Currant Buns. We have practising 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.
5 Little Men in a Flying Saucer
The children have really enjoyed focusing on the number rhyme 5 little men in a flying saucer. We have been using the number rhyme to help develop our ability to match quantities and numerals. We have used different construction materials to build our own space ships, looking at the different shapes we used and how we can describe them. Children also enjoyed using play dough to create their won alien, counting how many eyes they had.
