This week in nursery we will be looking at the religion Judaism. We will be finding out all about 'Hanukkah' and listening to the story 'Sammy Spiders First Hanukkah' by Sylvia A. Rouss.
The children will learn about a game called 'Dreidel' and how to play it. They will also make a 'Menorah' and learn about the significance of the candles.
Watch the videos below and have fun joining in with the activities.
Maths: Singing number songs.
Our number song of the week:
'Five Little Speckled Frogs' Sing along to the video below using your fingers when counting to represent the amount. You could even make your very own singing sticks and sing the song.
- Five little ducks went swimming one day
- Ten in a bed
- Five cheeky monkeys
- 1,2,3,4,5 once I caught a fish alive
- 5 little men in a flyer saucer
- 5 currant buns in a bakers shop
- Ten green bottles
Draw or print a picture to represent your number song. E.g for the song Five little speckled frogs draw a frog. Stick the picture on a lollipop stick or straw. Put all the singing sticks you have made altogether in a cup. Choose a singing stick and sing the song. When singing the song use your fingers to help you represent the numbers.
Aspect 1 - General sound discrimination - Environmental sounds.
Go on a listening walk around around your environment, this could be inside or outside of your house. Can you watch the video below and identity the sounds?
