Our Top Ten Books
Spring Term 2021
This term we have chosen some well known traditional tales to focus on. We will spend 2-3 weeks on each story, planning activities that relate to the story and will build on the children's previous learning. We will learn about three celebrations that take place during the Spring term. The occasions we will learn about are;
- Shrove Tuesday / Pancake Day
- Chinese New Year
We will also learn about seasonal changes that take place during the Spring 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.
Our focus stories this term are;
- The Three Little Pigs
- The Three Billy Goats Gruff
- Little Red Riding Hood
- Super Duck by Jez Alborough
We will use non-fiction books to learn about Chinese New Year, Pancake Day and Easter.
We will sing nursery rhymes and learn songs linked to our theme.
Visit the library to borrow some of the books we will read in Nursery. Can you find any information books about Winter, Spring, Pancake Day, Chinese New Year and Easter?
