Under the Sea

This week the children have continued to learn about life under the sea. The children have learnt that there are lots of different types of plants and animals that live under the sea. They wanted to make sea creatures of their own. Can you guess what sea creatures they have made?

The children have also measured sea creatures using gems. This activity encouraged the children to count with one to one correspondence as well as encouraging them to use comparative language when they were talking about the different creatures.

The children were very good at understanding that a total was the combination of two groups of objects. They were able to give each fish a certain number of Rainbow Fish’ scales and then work out the total number of scales the Rainbow Fish had given away.

Some children chose to count underwater creatures on the computer and select the corresponding numeral using the mouse.

Other children chose to sort the sea shells. They looked closely at the patterns on the shells and wrote labels, using their think writing, for each sorting ring.

Some children chose to make mermaids and mermen at the play dough table. They independently shaped the mermaid’s and mermen’s tail and they decorated it with shells and buttons. The children then think wrote about their mermaids and mermen, and they were able to ascribe meaning to their writing.

Other children chose to make boats big enough to sit in using the small construction logs inside and the big blue bricks from outside.

Another busy week in Nursery!
