This week is World Nursery Rhyme week and we have been learning a rhyme-a-day plus lots more singing in preparation for our "Showcase" next week. On Monday it was "Baa Baa Black Sheep". We sang a new version and know how to use Makaton too! On Tuesday it was "Down in The Jungle" which was a really funny song. We found out about jungle animals and rainforests. On Wednesday it was "Incy Wincy Spider" and we loved our "Dancing Spider" experiment! On Thursday for "Row row row your boat" we looked at lots of different kinds of boats and for Friday's rhyme- "2 Little Dickie Birds" we made bird feeders.
For Remembrance Day we watched the BBC "Poppies" animation and then talked about why we wear poppies and why we have a two minute silence on the 11th November. We made our own poppies and thought about how brave so many soldiers were. Follow the link if you would like to watch it again and talk about it at home.
A fabulous fireworks week this week 💥💥💥 We learned all about Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder Plot. We wrote about it and acted it out. Our Firework display looks fantastic. We also talked about the firework safety code and learnt a poem about why we have bonfire night- do you know the one?
