This week we have had lots of wonderful learning experiences around the story of 'Going on a Bear Hunt'. We have listened to the story in a variety of contexts and then acted out the story just like the author Michael Rosen. The children watched a clip of Michael performing the story then made their own representations, I have to say the children of Bluecoat Nursery are incredibly creative with their movements, actions and facial expressions!!!!
Through art we have created bears using paint and brushes and then created bear faces using forks to add texture. We have explored clay and made clay caves. We used sensory dough and collage materials to create our own bears.
In small world we have explored the bear hunt through a sensory tray and retold the story with characters and our own small world character blocks. We have been practising our counting skills by counting how many bears were hiding in the cave!
In letters and sounds we have been thinking about listening and sounds we can hear. Through sensory bottles we created the key sounds from the story and then played them at the correct places. We have been part of an orchestra and followed the animal cue to play our instruments loud and quiet.
We have enjoyed lots of physical experiences outside and next week we will be exploring over, under and through and learning about positional language as we follow the bears footprints to find the ....... BEAR!!!!
