The Nursery children are thinking about what it means to be a good friend. We are reading the book Handa’s Surprise to help with this learning.
This tells the story of how Handa has all the fruit in her hat taken by some of the other characters. The surprise comes at the end when she is happy once again with a hat full of fruit.
We are using the fruit theme in other areas of our learning. The children have been sorting and counting different fruit varieties in our Nursery.
Class teachers Catherine and Deanna have encouraged the children to feel the texture of the fruits and describe them. Pineapple was a popular fruit!
This work led to a fruit tasting session. The Nursery children were asked to describe the various tastes and name their favourite fruit.
We will soon start to read the Maisy series of books as part of our friendship topic. The characters involve a group of very close friends.
Our English learning has also introduced physical literacy. The idea is to help the children with their learning whilst we are exercising!
