**New paper learning packs for this week are available to collect from the office**
Please try and post on the class blog at least once a week, if not more, so I can see how the children are doing. It also means I can write the children a little message to encourage them. You will need your BGfL log in details for this.
If you need any support or have any queries please email stroseN@olstrose.bham.sch.uk
Morning message from Miss Arnold
Good morning Nursery. The last week of half term has rolled around already. It's been a very strange term and I am definitely missing you all very much. Please do try and post on the blog. If you have an older brother or sister in school they should be able to help you. This Friday is Screen Free Friday to give us all a break from the increased amount of time we are spending on devices these days. You can find out more about it in my video below!
Read the story of the Goldilocks and the three bears together. You can find a simple version of the story here https://s3.eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/storymuseum/TheThreeBears_story_text.pdf
You can listen to an audio version here:
And watch a ballet version of the story here:
Task – You could make your own bear ears with a strip of brown card or paper like these below or you could make your own porridge. You might also like to make your own porridge just like the three bears. You can find a recipe here: https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/perfect-porridge
Go outside and collect pebbles, sticks or leaves. If you have chalk you could draw two circles and share the pebbles between them. How do you know when they have an equal amount? You could also share them between two bags, bowls or boxes.
With different types of toys say ‘I spy something whose name begins with… and give the sound of the first letter, for example ‘p’ for pig. Ask, ‘What could it be?’ See if your child can guess. If they do, they can carry on the game saying, “I spy something beginning with…, and so on. If your child finds separating out the first sound too hard in the early stages, you can continue to be the caller until they get the hang of it.
Understanding the world
This week’s lesson is all about the life cycle of a hen. Read through the Powerpoint together, discuss and then complete the life cycle worksheet.
