Nursery Spring 2

Our second topic this term is called ‘How does your farm grow?’

We will be learning about farms and will have a focus each week (e.g.  farm machinery, farm animals and food that we get from farms). 

Some of the activities we will be completing this half term are- 

- Looking at the lifecycle of a bean plant. 

- Labelling (a plant, mother and baby animals)

- Discussing old and new farm equipment and machinery.

- Looking at the lifecycle of a hen. 

- Learning about crops and cereals. 

In Phonics, we will continue to consolidate our knowledge and understanding of rhyme, alliteration, rhythm, syllables and oral blending and segmenting. We will also continue learning the phase 2 phonemes. We will be introducing the first 6 ‘tricky’ words to the children this half term. These are words that the children need to recognise by sight as they cannot be sounded out. The phase 2 tricky words that we are introducing are: I, the, no, go, to & into.

In Maths, we will continue to build on our counting skills (counting out loud and 1:1 correspondence). We will also be comparing amounts and talking about the same, more and less. Activities aimed at building the children’s curiosity about numbers will be planned to develop their skills. We will build on our number recognition and learn more about patterns, shapes and positional language. We link our Maths activities and sessions to our topic as much as possible which the children really enjoy. 

As always please do not hesitate to ask us any questions about anything, including our curriculum or your child’s learning.
