This half term at Nursery, we have been learning about bears. We have learned about different types of bears and we have been reading stories about bears. We read ‘Postman Bear’ by Julia Donaldson, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, The Teddy Bear’s Picnic, ‘Peace at Last’ by Jill Murphy and our favourite, ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ by Michael Rosen. We’ve had great fun acting out the stories, drawing pictures and talking about what our marks mean.
We have been learning to recognise and write our names and we’re starting to label our pictures with our names!
In maths, we have been learning how to count to 5 in different ways. We have been counting actions, making marks to represent numbers, learning to recognise numerals 1-5 and counting objects by carefully saying one number for each object.
For our RE sessions we have been reading some of the stories Jesus would have heard like Noah’s Ark.
We’ve also been enjoying all the snow we’ve been having recently. We’ve become experts at mark making in the snow!
