Rainforest Theme 2nd - 6th November






For the next fortnight, we will be finding our wild side and going down in the jungle! Below are some of the activities that we will be doing in Nursery. Have a go at as many as you can and let us know how you get on!  You can send pictures in the usual way:

Please let us know if you do not wish for your pictures to be shared on our website. 

Shape of the week this week is an Oval. We will be singing this song in Nursery and going on a shape hunt to see how many oval shaped objects we can find.

Number of the week is 5. We will be singing lots of songs and nursery rhymes which incorporate counting up to 5. How many can you learn?

Snake craft activity - In Nursery we will be using paper plates, but you could just use card or paper. An adult will draw a spiral and the children will practise their cutting skills by cutting along the spiral. We will then be painting our snakes and adding eyes and a tongue. Have a go!

Binoculars art and craft - We will be making these binoculars this week to use in our explorer role play hut! We use kitchen roll tubes, you could use toilet roll tubes. Perhaps you could do some role play at home too! Pretend you are in the rainforest, looking for wildlife! Be careful, some of those animals are very dangerous!

Dear Zoo Animal Sounds Listening Game - Phase 1 Phonics

Listen carefully to the animal sounds and see if you can guess who is making each noise! There are lots of other phase 1 listening games on You Tube if you want to try something different. Listening to and distinguishing between different sounds is an important skill which helps prepare the children for early reading. We play similar games in Nursery every week!

Reading Challenge! How many rainforest / jungle stories can you read this week? If you don't have any of these titles at home, you can find online copies on sites such as You Tube or Oxford Reading Owl. Here are some ideas to inspire you!

For more ideas, here are some sites you can use to gain access to a huge selection of ebooks!  Our English page on the website has some excellent ideas for ways you can support your child to help them develop early reading skills.
