You can have a try at making your own spider using toilet rolls. 

You can make spiders using your hand prints and turn them into puppets.

You can also have a try at making spiders with play dough. This will also encourage great fine motor skills and finger exercises which we love to do in nursery with our play dough.

                      

Mrs Thompson and I would love to see your own spiders and you can even give them a name.

Our new story is 'The Star of the Zoo'. The animals are settling down for the night when a shooting star falls out of the sky. Each animal tries to help however it is a clever Ant that comes up with a wonderful plan of using teamwork to help the little star get back home in the sky.

We are also learning the song, The Ants Go Marching. This song supports number order and can emphasize our letter sound 'a'.

If you would like to have a try at supporting your child to write down the letter sound 'a'. First of all ask your child to do it in the air using a pointed finger, say the sentence 'around the apple and down the leaf'. Then after a few times your child can have a try at writing it on paper. Let your child trace over the letter sound 'a' and then have a try at writing it themselves, all the time saying, 'around the apple and down the leaf'. 

Here is a link to help support this for you- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eiSNwYhBf28

 

Mrs Thompson and I hope you have a great week :) 

Mrs Thompson and I hope you all had a lovely Easter.

To start this week off we will begin with some Easter 'Cosmic Yoga' 

This supports your child's physical and mental well being, as well as being fun!

This week is about Mr Hoppit the Hare and being kind to our friends.

This week we will be concentrating on the letter sound 's'. 

You can play a game where you ask your child to find an object that starts with this letter sound.

Once you have a few objects that start with the letter sound 's' you can hide them under a blanket, remove an item and ask what object is missing.

There is a great website called 'Topmarks' where your child can play some interactive games to support their phonics recognition.  https://www.topmarks.co.uk/english-games/3-5-years/letters-and-sounds

Alphablocks is another great website where your child can learn the letter sounds. This one is for the letter sound 's'.

To help support your child's fine motor skills and to have some fun along the way you can complete a jigsaw with them, use some chalk and let your child draw on the concrete in the garden and you can also have a try at painting the fence using a paint brush and a bowl of water.

You can even dress up to make it even more fun!

 

We love stories in nursery and to encourage your child to listen, handle and look through story books you can make a little story den with blankets and cushions. If your child has especially enjoyed a story with you please let us know your favourite.

If you need any support my email is alice.quiles@waverley.newcastle.sch.uk
