Welcome to Nursery

Our second topic in Nursery 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
In Phonics, we will be building on our knowledge and understanding of key listening skills, rhyme, rhythm, alliteration (hearing and saying initial sounds) and oral blending and segmenting.
In Maths, we will continue building on our counting skills. We will also learn more about comparing quantities, shapes and patterns. We will understand and use positional language such as ‘next to’, ‘behind’, ‘in front of’, ‘in between’ and ‘under’.
We will be celebrating World Nursery Rhyme week (week beginning the 15th November- more details will be given soon!) and we will be participating in whole school events such as Anti-bullying week.
We are really looking forward to Christmas already and will give out more details about our plans soon.
