The Nursery children have made a head start in preparing for Poetry Week which is taking place before the Easter break. We have introduced the children to the brilliant Zim Zam Zoom rhyming book.
This is an anthology of different poems. We are working through each story. One of the first poems is about rockets. This is a popular choice for the children. It has inspired us to make some model rockets to put in our display corner.
Different actions for each poem are being learnt. Zim Zam Zoom uses plenty of alliteration in the poems. This helps the Nursery children with their speech development. We have used some of the poems as a starting point for conversations with each class member.
