Nursery celebrate books and reading

Last week in Nursery, to coincide with World Book Day, we spent a day throughout the week looking at some of the children’s favourite books.

On Monday we focused on ‘The Gruffalo’ by Julia Donaldson and used fuzzy felt to help us with our positional language, using it to describe where each woodland creature lived alongside some beautiful caption work.

Tuesday saw us focus on time, using the book ‘5 Minutes Peace’ by Jill Murphy. The children used sand-timers to measure how long they performed certain activities, such as hopping for 1 minute and clapping for 2 minutes. They also timed how long it took to give the elephants in the classroom a wash in the large outdoor water table, similar to the events in the story.

On Wednesday we giggled as we read a book by Anna Freedman and Ben Cort called ‘Aliens Love Underpants’ and then we painted patterns on pants with paint.

Thursday saw us have fun reading ‘The Day The Crayons Quit’. We made our own crayon pictures out of crayons and sorted them by colour and size.

On Friday we celebrated the fact that Peppa Pig also loves World Book Day. By sharing all these different stories we are well on our way to sharing 1 million stories, which the whole school is involved in.
