Can I Make a New Friend?In this section...
When we start at Barrow Hedges, there is so much to learn and it is so exciting. During the first half-term the children learn to join in with their new friends when they play.
We learn about the Nursery rules and how to make new friends through the story 'Little Tiger Goes To School'. We read the story together and meet all the characters. We help them to learn the rules and make new friends in Nursery too.
We meet Tarzan the tortoise. He helps us to remember to walk with our friends in the Nursery. We also help Little Leopard to remember to walk in Nursery so that he doesn't get hurt or bump into his friends.
Little Elephant helps us to remember to listen to our friends when we are playing together. We get very good at using our listening ears!
We show Little Monkey how to tidy up the toys so our Nursery is a nice place for us to play with our friends.
We teach Little Parrot how to share the toys and use nice words at Nursery, such as, “Please can I play with you?” and “Can I have a turn please?”
We learn to look at our new friends and smile when we want to play a game.
We read the story 'The Tiger Who Came to Tea.' The Tiger even comes to tea at Nursery.
We learn to try new things with our friends, like tasting different types of tea, using a real teapot!
At the end of this theme we will know how to use kind hands, to share, listen and use kind words with our new friends at Nursery.
We become good at learning the Nursery rules and helping our animal friends from the story to remember to follow the rules too. This helps us to settle into our new Nursery brilliantly, getting us ready for learning!
