Summer Term 2019
This term the whole school theme is ‘Location, Location, Location’, in Early Years we will be learning about different places in and around Shrewsbury.
In Nursery our focus will be ‘Where could I go today? We will visit a local library, a farm and a woodland area. We will also learn about seasonal changes and different cultural celebrations that take place during the Summer term.
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 mini-beasts and summer, 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:
· Spot Goes to the Farm by Eric Hill
· The Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle
· Where is Rosie’s chick? by Pat Hutchins
Visit the library to borrow some of the books we will read in Nursery. Can you find any books about mini-beasts, farm animals and summer?
Over the school year we aim for children to become very familiar with between 6 - 10 stories We will read them frequently and encourage the children to join in.

- Sing number rhymes
- Recognising numbers and ways of representing numbers, e.g. Numicon
