Our Spring 1 Journey

 Spring 1 - The Gingerbread Man 

Welcome back and welcome to our new starters

Hello, and welcome back after the holidays - I hope you all had a lovely break and a fantastic Christmas if you celebrated. We welcomed some new children into Nursery this week, we enjoyed showing them around and helping them to play, share and take turns. 

      

This week we focused on winter and all things cold as it was quite frosty and icy on a morning. 

   

We learnt a new song;

Here we go round the Mulberry Bush

Here we go round the mulberry bush, the mulberry bush, the mulberry bush.

Here we go round the mulberry bush on a cold and frosty morning. 

This is the way we put on our hat, put on our hat, put on our hat.

this is the way we put on our hat on a cold and frosty morning. 

Other verses:

This is the way we....

put on our gloves...

put on our scarf....

put on our coat....

build our snowman! 

We had lots of fun singing and acting out the song with our friends. 

We also explored the ice and the frost outside. 

The Gingerbread Man

This week we started learning The Gingerbread Man story. 

We practised joining in with the repeated refrain, 'run run as fast as you can you can't catch me I'm the gingerbread man!' We talked about our favourite part of the story, a lot of us agreed that the best part was when the fox gobbled up the gingerbread man with a snap snap snap at the end of our story. 

We have enjoyed using the story tray to act out the story as well as reading the book in our reading area. 

   

 

We have also been trying really hard writing our names.
