Activity 1

Nursery Rhymes – spend some time singing nursery rhymes with your child, here are some familiar ones.

Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

Twinkle, twinkle, little star
How I wonder what you are
Up above the world so high
Like a diamond in the sky
Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are

When the blazing sun is gone
When he nothing shines upon
Then you show your little light
Twinkle, twinkle, all the night
Twinkle, twinkle, little star
How I wonder what you are

Humpty Dumpty

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall.
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
couldn’t put Humpty together again. (x3)

One, Two, Three, Four, Five

One, two, three, four, five,
Once I caught a fish alive,
Six, seven, eight, nine, ten,
Then I let it go again
Why did you let it go?
Because it bit my finger so.
Which finger did it bite?
This little finger on the right

Baa baa black sheep

Baa baa black sheep, have you any wool?
Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full!
One for the master, one for the dame,
And one for the little boy who lives down the lane

Activity 5

County Rangers

The children were very curious recently to learn about nocturnal animals. We explored other animals in our environment and extended their interest by having a visit from the County Rangers who brought stuffed animals to explore.

“let it snow, let it snow, let it snow”

the children were so excited to go out and play in the snow we threw snow balls, made little snow men and some children tried to make snow angels.

to keep us warm we brought out the musical instruments and music box and sang and danced along to Christmas music then enjoyed some hot chocolate.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Christmas has arrived in nursery and the children have been busy making their Advent Calendars. The Yellow, Orange and Blue groups made a Christmas tree with number baubles and the Red and Purple group made a Santa with a number beard.

“Oh ,Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree, how lovely are your branches.”

The children are very busy this morning decorating our tree.
