Welcome to Nursery!

Our second topic is called ‘Discover with Donaldson’ and we will be developing our understanding of the world through Julia Donaldson stories.
Each week we will have a theme and we will be focusing on certain Julia Donaldson stories. The books we focus on will have planned activities linked to the stories, however we will be reading lots of other Julia Donaldson books too. The books we are focusing on are:

Tales from Acorn Woods books
Sharing a shell
Toddle waddle
One mole digging a hole
The smartest giant in town
Jack and the flum flum tree
What the ladybird heard/What the ladybird heard next
Monkey puzzle
Freddie and the fairy
The princess and the wizard
In phonics we will be building on our knowledge and understanding of key listening skills, rhyme, rhythm, alliteration and oral blending and segmenting.
In maths, we will continue building on our counting skills. We will also learn more about shapes, comparing quantities, categorising and representing numbers. We will understand and use positional language.
We are really looking forward to Christmas already and will soon be starting to practise our Christmas nativity songs. You will receive more details about this later in the term.
We will be celebrating World Nursery Rhyme week (week beginning the 18th November) and we will be participating in whole school events such as Anti-bullying week, Maths week, Children in Need dress up, Be bright day and Save the Children Christmas jumper day.
