Our Autumn topic is developing well.
The children have been learning about fruit and vegetables.
We have had discussions about healthy eating and we have talked about the colour and shape of different fruit and vegetables and where and how they have been grown.
The children enjoyed playing a game of fruit and vegetable lotto together.
They practised counting how many pictures were on their board, how many pictures they had and how many pictures they needed to get.
Letters and sounds phase one weekly activity
Each week we focus on a different letter sound starting this week with letter 'A'
In the nursery we take an informal and fun approach to teach letters and sounds.
We read a letter 'A' sound story to the children, play a game using a sound box and a sound jar and we refer to our working wall.
The children pick objects from the sound box and if they begin with the letter 'A' they are placed into the letter 'A' sound jar.
We talk about pictures of objects beginning with the letter 'A' which we attach to the letter 'A' sound flower on the working wall.
We finish with a song - the Jolly phonics letter 'A' song.
