We have used the nursery rhyme ‘Incy Wincy Spider’ this week, to learn about numbers, counting, cutting and familiarise ourselves with rhyme. The children made spiders with a range of materials (including play dough/paper plates/chalks) and counted the legs, matched quantity, wrote numbers. We enjoyed playing ‘splatt the spider’ and laughed a lot watching the video clips of ‘spider in the bath’ a preschool favourite!

During our outdoor play we enjoyed the beautiful weather and opened a car wash for the children to role play. A great chance for us to cool off!

We also took a lovely walk around the woodland play area with our morning children. They were climbing, balancing, jumping, collecting natural objects and looking at insects in the bug hotels.

Next week: we will be using a new nursery rhyme – ‘humpty dumpty’ to support our learning. We will look at using ICT and constructing with a purpose in mind.
