This week's focus has been based around the nursery rhyme, 'There was an old lady who swallowed a fly'. This has provided plenty of opportunity to broaden the children's vocabulary, looking at words such as after and before and work on some basic phonics and maths.
In the secret garden the children had to look for the different animals which the old lady swallows. This involved the children working in groups and therefore worked on their communication skills. They also had to look for the letters which made up our word of the week, which was 'consumed'. Many of the children could identify the letters and make the appropriate phonetic sounds.
The children are continuing to progress with their independence when getting ready for the secret garden which is great to see.
The children are getting more confident counting to 10 and many can go beyond. Any practice you can do at home too will help.
It's lovely to see the children's writing progress, with many being able to write their names and some numbers.
Next weeks nursery rhyme is '5 Current Buns'. Watch this space to see what we do linked to this!
