Our Learning Journey

This week we have been assessing the children on their knowledge of number. We have created number lines for our classroom which show photos and different amounts of children. This helps to make the number line ‘real’ and gives the numbers in the classroom meaning to the children. It will encourage them to refer to it while they are playing. We have enhanced our outdoor learning area with number plates for our bikes and corresponding car parking spaces.

We have started our new handwriting scheme ‘Squiggle Whilst You Wiggle’. Squiggle Whilst you Wiggle is a dancing session which incorporates large gross motor movements both while dancing and then with mark making pens. It has direct links to the EYFS curriculum and the children have really enjoyed it. This week we have focused on ‘up and down’ movements. 

Mandarin

This week our Nursery children have been learning the names of body parts, including head, tummy, hand and foot. They have learned a song about body parts which was introduced this week. Please refer to the link for flash cards containing vocabulary words to practise at home.

Physical Education

This week the children have been learning the first individual step towards catching a large ball.  They have been participating in activities that encourage them to track the ball. In swimming, the children have been using noodles to improve their buoyancy and to allow them to build on core strength.

Music

Aside from singing their favourite songs with actions, your children have learned the difference between the rhythm (short and long notes) and the beat or tempo (fast and slow). They learned that rhythm notes can be written and they have experimented with very simple notation.

Continuing Our Learning Journey at Home

This week we are setting the challenge for you to take pictures of numbers you see in the environment at home. Look out for numbers on houses and condos, on number plates, at the supermarket and on packaging. Send your pictures to your teacher's’ email address.

Next week we will be learning about pets and animals. If you would like to show and tell about your pet or favourite animal please bring in a photo, drawing or toy.
