Nursery News Autumn 2 Week 4
This week we have enjoyed listening and learning the story of The Gingerbread Man. Together with the grown ups we created a story map using pictures and this has helped us to retell the story. We have also enjoyed dressing up as the characters from the story and acting the story out to our friends. The children have learnt some new words linked to the story including; dough, sneaky, sly and stream. During explore learning the children explored clay for the first time and used their knowledge from manipulating playdough to create their own clay gingerbread man.
We also had fun in the school hall exercising our bodies. The children learnt to take their shoes and socks off. We started by warming our bodies up and talked about the changes that we notice including our heart beating faster. We talked about the important job our heart does pumping blood around all of our body. We then enjoyed a variety of different ring games where we learnt to move safely and negotiate space.
