They're big, furry, covered in fur and can be found in many places around the world. Can you guess which animal it is? That's right 'A Bear'.
This week we are learning all about real bears around the world. Did you know they are eight different species of bears? Watch this video and see if you can name any with support from your adult.
After listening to the video have a discussion with your child and ask them what it might be like to have a bear living in their house. What food would the bear need? What will you play at playtime together? Afterwards why not draw a picture of a bear and label your picture. Don't forget to write you name.
Have fun making some Teddy bear cookies and use this opportunity to encourage your child to talk about the changes and textures that they can see and feel throughout the process. The recipe is child friendly.
Listen to the story of Goldilocks and The Three Bears. Once you've listened to the story a few times with your child ask them some questions about the story.
- Where do the bears live?
- What does Mummy Bear make for breakfast?
- Who comes to the bear's house?
- What was wrong with Daddy Bear's porridge?
- After tasting the porridge, what is the next thing that Goldilocks does?
- In which room did they find Goldilocks asleep?
- Could real bears live in a house and make porridge? Why?
In Maths this week the children will be sorting and ordering different sizes. Watch the video below together with your child to help identify different sizes - Big, medium and small. Afterwards why not get involved and download the Goldilocks and the three bears sorting activity. If you are unable to do this, you could use your child's toys and sort them in order of size. Hope you have lots of fun and look forward to hearing all about it!
In nursery we sing a variety of number rhymes to support the children with their counting. Here are a few of the number rhymes we sing.
Next week we will be visiting Judy Woods. Can you think of anything that we might find in the woods? Maybe you could go outside in the garden if possible or take a look out of your window and discuss what you can see.
Make a Autumn bag and collect some leaves and twigs and make an Autumn picture or used the natural materials to make a self-portrait.
