Mark Making

The children have been practising writing their names today. They have been copying their name cards with markers in the sand. We have been concentrating on using the correct grip and the children have impressed us immensely!

Who built the ark?

This week in Nursery we have been reading the story of Noah’s Ark and singing the song “Who Built the Ark?” The children have loved playing with the animals in our wooden ark.

We have also been working on colours, shape and pattern. We have made pictures on the cork boards and made patterns with the beads.

Settling in

Nursey have settled brilliantly into Thorp school life and have thoroughly enjoyed their first full week.

We have been reading “We’re Going On A Bear Hunt”, “The Very Hungry Caterpillar”, “Brown Bear, Brown Bear” and lots more. The children have been painting pictures from “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” that are now on the wall and look fabulous!

Our favourite rhymes so far are “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” and “Five Little Monkeys Jumping On A Bed.”

Chinese New Year

This week we have been learning about Chinese New Year. We have completed lots of different activities and made Chinese lanterns. We have found the first letter of our name in Chinese and painted it with fine paintbrushes. We have also been writing Chinese numbers and mark making in red sand.
