We eased into the term with some nursery rhyme fun! The children had so much fun re-enacting their favourite nursery rhymes and learning some new ones! Nursery rhyme sensory tubs, felt boards and activities were great tools to encourage discussion and play…
Of course plenty of art to help us remember our rhymes and teach our friends!
Tooo many lovely nursery rhymes and too little time! Another theme filled with so many different ideas and opportunities to create lovely provocations for the children… I was given a very special book that was great inspiration and provided a great selection of well known and not so well known nursery rhymes to share with the children.
This year I made a set of nursery rhyme felt characters for the felt board – the children loved them and I’d often overhear them singing the nursery rhymes and enacting the rhymes amongst themselves.
On the table we had a few small provocations of various nursery rhymes – the children had great fun playing with these during the week. Towards the end of the week I created a sensory basin filled with the items together with large shred sawdust – they adored this!
On the other side of the classroom a “little miss muffit” play scene with picnic basket, cushion and of course spider on elasticated thread hanging from the ceiling! The children had an absolute ball with the spider – every time they pulled it it would shoot up into the air – too much fun!
A great week filled with so many creative play based activities and loads of fun!
