Is It Time for a Rhyme?
The Nursery children have very enthusiastically taken on our theme of ‘Is it time for a rhyme?’ by learning a rhyme each week and exploring and creating their own learning. They have taken part in spider hunts for Incy Wincy and watching Humpty smash, speculating about how to put him back together.
Did you know, ‘… that experts in literacy and child development have discovered that if a child knows eight nursery rhymes by heart by the time they are four years old, they are usually among the best readers and spellers in their class by the time they are in Year 3? (www.cardiff.gov.uk/ readingpower 2011) so keep singing! Look on our Facebook page for photos of our activities each week, (South Camberley Primary's Nursery).
Welcome to Nursery! The children have settled in quickly and are beginning to link up with others and make friends. They are learning to play co-operatively and take turns. Some activities only work with more than one person, so they need to use their language skills to ask others to help, negotiate what to do and demonstrate good listening.
