This week we had lots of fun with dragons escaping in nursery! We started with 14 but soon there were zero so we had to find them. We had to use careful counting and the number line to check we had found them all. This gave us lots of chance to practise recognising numerals whilst having lots of fun at the same time.
We found out that dragons are often seen in stories with Knights, Princesses and a castle so we had lots of activities based around these. We even had some frogs for the Princess to kiss!
We shared a story called “There’s a dragon in your book” by Tom Fletcher which encouraged us to join in with lots of actions which we all enjoyed.
Mr Grayson let us borrow his castle but it didn’t have any instuctions. We had a big challenge to try and put it together again. It definitely looked a ruined castle and the chidren thought a dragon may have burned it down!
Next week the children have chosen to have superheroes as our fantasy focus and are super excited about it!
