Our Top Ten Books
Spring Term 2020
Our whole school topic this term is ‘World Kitchen’. In Nursery our focus will be ‘Food Glorious Food’ and we will use stories as the starting point for short blocks of work. We will create a booklet of recipes and activities linked to our focus stories and we will send these home to each family at the end of the spring term.
We will also learn about seasonal changes and different cultural celebrations 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;
- Goldilocks and the Three Bears
- The Gingerbread Man
- The Little Red Hen
- The Runaway Pancake
We will use non-fiction books to learn about Winter, Chinese New Year, Spring and Easter.
We will be learning nursery rhymes with a food theme ready for our Rhyme Time concert for parents.
Visit the library to borrow some of the books we will read in Nursery. Can you find any information books about food, Winter, Chinese New Year, Spring or Easter?
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.
In Mathematics we will be learning to;
- recite numbers in order
