Welcome to Nursery

Our Summer term topic is called ‘Around the world’. In the first half term we will learn about England and some of the countries in Europe and in the second half term we will learn about Asia and Antarctica. 
The places we are learning about this half term are:
England and the other countries in the United Kingdom (Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales)

  • France

  • Spain

  • Italy 
    Some of the activities we will be completing this half term are:
    -Drawing and labelling (Big Ben, The Loch Ness Monster, A Spanish beach).
    -Using Google Earth and Google Maps (Looking at landmarks and the countries).
    -Discussing various topics linked to the countries and comparing the countries to England (Topics we will discuss are: The Royal Family, the flags, cultural aspects of the countries).
    -Cutting out/Making things with various construction materials (A green shamrock, a daffodil, a maraca, the Eiffel Tower)
    -Writing (A postcard and menu). 
    In Phonics, we will continue to consolidate our knowledge and understanding of rhyme, alliteration, rhythm, syllables and oral blending and segmenting. We will also recap the phase 2 phonemes and tricky words and we will continue to practise reading and writing them. We will try to create words using the phase 2 phonemes. 
    In Maths, we will continue to build on our counting skills (counting out loud and 1 to 1 correspondence). We will also be building on our number recognition, subitising and problem solving. Activities will be planned so the children can learn more about comparing size, weight, height and capacity. We will learn more about patterns, shapes, positional language and sequencing. 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. 
    Thank you for your continued support with your child’s learning.
