We had a wonderful day celebrating World Nursery Rhyme Week; we dressed up as our favourite people and characters from rhymes.
#hg was Little Boy Blue.
#ld was Jack from Jack and Jill.
#lha dressed as Minnie Mouse.
#gg was a cat.
#erc dressed up as Little Red Riding Hood and #srw was Twinkle Twinkle.
Mrs Riddell dressed up as the Dingle Dangle Scarecrow and I came as Twinkle Twinkle too.
Today we’re focusing on the song ‘Hickory Dickory Dock.’
These little girls made marks to represent numbers on their clocks. #mc said, “Clock,” and counted aloud 1-10 as I pointed to the numbers on the clock.
We also used number sponges to make clocks and talk about numbers too.
Today we’ve been singing the nursery rhyme ‘Lavender’s Blue’ – to go along with this we’ve been exploring lavender sensory rice and colour mixing different shades of purple using paint.
#lha tells me the rice is “Purple.” She brings the rice to her nose to smell it. #sh also smells the rice. #ld sprinkles the rice into the tray and tells me, “Raining.”
#jg scoops the rice using a scoop and also runs her hands through the rice.
#alr laughed to herself as she tips rice from one container to another
