Week 4 22.11.21-26.11.21


Number rhymes are great to help your child practice counting. Children love the repetition and it helps them learn the words. Our number rhyme of the week in Nursery is: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 Once I caught a fish alive. Have a look at  the video below with your child and encourage them to use their fingers and toes as a tool to help them learn 1-1 correspondence. 

1-1 correspondence is one of the simplest forms of the concept. Linking this to a song and a rhyme allows them to experience learning the concept in a more meaningful way.

Nursery Rhyme - 1,2,3,4,5 Once I caught a fish aliveOne two three four five is the first nursery rhyme many children learn to count to.

Three Little Pigs

Read the story of the three little pigs or watch the video below. Have a try at writing the number 3. Can you make 3 little pig puppets and their homes using junk modelling (recycle boxes, containers, material). Encourage your child to use 1-1 counting and place each pig in their homes. Play the game - What's the time Mr Wolf? 

Fairy Tales - The 3 Little Pigs Story


The children have enjoyed reading the book 'Hug' by Jez Alborough. Why not listen to the story again with your child and come up with some actions together to retell the story. Can you make a story map and retell the story this way? I look forward to seeing your story maps and listening to you retelling the story of 'HUG'. 

You could go outside and explore nature and collect materials to make your own jungle home for the animals.
