Nibbles & Goldilocks!


Posted by Miss Ward | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on 12-01-2018

This week Nibbles has sent us a fantastic Fairy Tales book selection and has left us lots of challenges to complete.

In Literacy this week we have been listening to Fairy Tales and trying to predict what may happen as well as talking about key events. In Spark Your Speech we watched part of a video where wolves chased a girl. We then had to predict what was going to happen next. We used full sentences, actions and pictures to describe what we thought was going to happen and then we continued the video to see. We were all very surprised to see that the wolves and the girl were actually playing hide and seek!

In Maths, we have been helping Nibbles with counting. He has been wanting to know how many books he has been nibbling through so we have had to help him.

In Phonics, we are beginning to introduce letter sounds to the children. We have introduced ‘a’ this week. We have also focused on hearing initial sounds in words. Playing games like I spy, giving silly alliteration names and silly soup.

During choosing time, children have chosen from activities such as creating monsters in the workshop with different materials, counting with wands, reenacting Little Red Riding hood in the small world and practising our new sound.

Next week we are hoping Nibbles will set us some more challenges focusing on Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
