Spring Term 2019
This term the whole school theme is ‘Achievements and Legacies'.
In Nursery our focus will be on 'Superheroes'. We will begin by having a superhero day. The children can dress up as a favourite superhero and we will talk about story characters who are superheroes. We will go on to learn about 'real life' superheroes in our community.
We will learn about seasonal changes as we explore the outdoor play areas and go to Forest School.
We provide lots of opportunities for role play in nursery, with a Home Corner in the classroom and a number of role play boxes, e.g. doctors, hairdressers, vets, shopping. Outside we have a den/construction resources, a mud kitchen and a pirate ship.
In Literacy activities we will be supporting the children to learn to recognise and write their own name. We will be encouraging children to take part in mark-making activities both inside and outside the classroom, asking them to talk about the marks they make.
This term we will be sharing a range of fiction and non-fiction books linked to our topic. We will read non-fiction books about winter and spring, to link with our Forest School sessions.
We will have a daily letters and sounds session where we will focus on listening to sounds, singing rhymes, clapping syllables in our names and other words, making sounds with our voices and with instruments.
We will be reading stories linked to our theme.
Our focus books will be:
· Super Duck by Jez Alborough
· Super Sid by Sam Lloyd
· Little Red Riding Hood
Visit the library to borrow some of the books we will read in Nursery. Can you find any books about going to nursery, homes, trees, woodland animals and Autumn.
