Traditional tales

This week we have been

Reading a range of traditional tales including ‘Goldilocks and the three bears’, ‘Chicken Licken’ and ‘The enormous turnip’. We have been focusing on size this week and using the stories to help us. We have been making different size beds different size chairs and ordering the sizes of the turnips.
We have also been reading the story ‘My cat likes to hide in boxes’. We were using the toy cats and a range of boxes and thinking about the different sizes. We were trying to fit the cats into the boxes. Some of us made a car for all the cats to go inside using the big blocks.

We used the Goldilocks story in our writing this week. We decided that Goldilocks should write a letter to the three bears to say that she was sorry.

We used ‘Kit and Pup’ this week to explore heavy and light. We watched the video and then we explored ourselves using some scales and some boxes wrapped up as presents. We also had a box of feathers that were very light and we were making them fly by blowing them.

In our RE this week we have been exploring and re-visiting the story Noah’s Ark. We were using the Ark in the water tray and talking about the animals going in 2 by 2. The children also drew their own arks and labelled the animals.

During our ‘Enormous turnip’ learning we were talking about growing vegetables. The children loved exploring growing vegetables outside in the builders tray, we will continue this learning next week when we’re learning about Jack and the Beanstalk.

Next week we will be

  • Continuing our traditional tales by reading ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ and ‘The three billy goats gruff’.
  • Thinking about size using our stories, focusing on height.
  • Learning about how seeds grow.
  • Reading ‘Mae among the stars’ as part of our black history learning.

Please ensure the children always have a coat when they’re in school, something light and waterproof would be perfect. You can leave these on the children’s pegs if you do not wish to bring them backwards and forwards from school.

Just a reminder about our class assembly is on Friday, the 14th of June it would be really great if you could all come to watch the children tell you all about their learning from this year.

Please help us spread the word about your child’s year at St Cyprian’s Nursery. We aim to provide the best for each child, ensuring that they meet their full potential. We would love to provide this enriched curriculum to every child possible!

Thank you for your ongoing support, Mrs Herne
