It has been magical in the Nursery this week exploring a Literacy Focus on the story of ‘Peter Pan’ following children’s interest in pirates, mermaids and fairies. The children have enjoyed fairy dust mark-making, discussing what makes a character a goody or a baddy and making fairy houses from natural materials. Following a child’s request for a ‘cinema’ event, we paid a visit to the Nursery ‘Tuck Shop’ and had to match coins to numbered bags of popcorn before enjoying ‘Disney’s Peter Pan’ on the SMART board.
Making tickets for our friends, visiting the ‘Tuck Shop’ and completing simple sums in order to put sweets in bags ready for the ‘cinema’ event.
Tracing our friend’s shadows after watching a clip from ‘Disney’s Peter Pan’, fairy dust mark-making and using London landmarks as inspiration for construction as it is the setting for the story.
Have a lovely weekend and we look forward to seeing you on Monday!
