Spring Term – 2022 Nursery
In Phonics we will be focusing on Phase 1 -Environmental Sounds. This is where we will be using our listening skills to hear initial sounds like at the beginning of our name. We will be singing rhymes and learning new ones as well as playing games to help us to tune into rhyme. We will be focusing on listening to stories and again tuning into rhymes not only in songs and games but in the books we read as a class as well.
In the EYFS curriculum we are focusing on the numbers 0-5 in greater depth to give the children a firm foundation this nursery year and going into reception. We will be playing games that help us to recognise numerals 0-5 and match the correct value to those numbers. We will be using lots of different types of resources to help us do this such as dice, dominoes and Numicon.
In English we will be looking at lots of different books and stories that are fairytales, we start off the Jolly Postman’s Journey with Goldilocks and the Three Bears, we continue on to the gingerbread man to start off our venture of traditional tales.
Other areas of learning
This term we are focusing on our well being and our social and emotional development. Some new children have joined us this term in nursery so we are focusing on helping them settle in and build relationships with the other children and adults in setting. We have also as a class and are going to continue to talk about our feelings we have been reading The Colour Monster.
We are also continually developing our outdoor provision and the children have loved exploring and engaging with our new resources in the water area and construction role play.
Thank you for your continued support
The children recently enjoyed coming to school in their pyjamas and different outfits for world book day. The children read Mr Wolf's Pancakes by Jan Fearnley and even made some pancakes to eat in their very own book café!
