Our Learning this Week
Nursery 13th June 2014

Language, Literacy & Communication


Ben and Betty have been teaching us the letter sound “z” this week.

We read “Dear Zoo” and had lots of fun making the animal noises.

We made zig-zag books about zoo animals.


Mathematical Development


We have talked about pattern when looking at Zebras.

We have been practising counting to 10 with our Rugby Tots moves.

We have been singing lots of number rhymes where we take away one – five little ducks, five speckled frogs, – so that the children learn the idea of one less.


Knowledge and Understanding of the World


Swansea in Bloom is fast approaching so the children have continued to care for the flowers y watering them. We have also planted more flowers in buckets, wellies and milk bottles. I hope you like how the garden is looking!

Personal and Social Development, Well Being and Cultural Diversity


We talked about keeping safe near roads to fit in with our Walking Bus event. Children played road safety games on the computer and we had a zebra crossing outside with the bikes.
We also discussed the question “Should animals be kept in a zoo?” with lots of interesting answers.

Creative Development


We made a zebra z and practised our cutting  skills to cut the black paper. We then talked about the zebra’s pattern and made that on the z shape – They looked great.

We have also drawn stripy patterns on the zebras on Penpals on the interactive whiteboard.

We learnt the song “Daddy’s taking us to the zoo tomorrow”.

Physical Development


Rugby Tots were here for Move-it Monday and we practised throwing and kicking the rugby ball.

We took part in The Walking Bus around the school grounds. I was very proud of how sensible the children were. Thanks for your kind donations for a good cause.

Welsh Language Development


We have done some big counting in Welsh this week, counting all the children in class.
Also I am very proud at how good some of the children are getting in understanding my Welsh questions for the Welsh board every morning – Well done!


Anything else!


Please remember to put suncream on your child before coming into nursery during the hot weather. You can also send them in with a sun hat for added protection.

Don’t forget to let me know if you are coming in the school trip to Pembrey – £5 per adult, free for children.
