Can you remember the days of the week? I wonder if you can remember any of the Makaton signs that we learnt too?
Here are 'singing hands' to help us...

How many days are in the week?

Today's phonics activity is some body percussion. Please have fun with this, you could make a beat using your body for lots of nursery rhymes or songs, maybe you could upload a video on to your ClassDojo portfolio!

Now that we are very familiar with the number rhyme '5 Little Ducks,' are there any other number rhymes you can think of? Here are a few that I thought of...

When we are in nursery, we like creating our own masks for what we have been learning about, this develops our cutting skills and our creativity. Can you create a duck mask with the help of your grown up? If you have children's scissors at home then maybe you could have a go at cutting yourself. You can use any resources that you have, even if it is a paper plate or a drawing. Enjoy yourselves!

Here is Miss Whiston reading 'Dear Zoo'
