Our topic this half term is 'Minibeast'. We will be learning lots about different minibeast that you might find in the garden, including naming them and describing their features. We will also be learning about how they grow and what they like to eat.
We will be reading the stories 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' and 'Walter's Wonderful Web'.
Please see our class Knowledge Organiser for more information about our topic and activities that you can complete at home.
In Literacy we will be reading two key texts over the next 6 weeks. These are 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' and 'Walter's Wonderful Web'. We will be talking about the stories, re-telling them, using story maps and making up our own versions of the stories.
We will be sharing the texts in our key groups and then following on our learning through activities in our continuous provision both inside and outside.
We will also be focusing on recognising and writing our names.
We will be hearing and writing the first sound in words.
In Maths we will be counting, ordering and recognising numbers up to 10. We will also be matching numerals to quantities - counting minibeast and using our number lines to find the matching number. We will also be writing the numbers independently.
We will also be recognising and beginning to describe simple 2d shapes, then using them to copy and create patterns.
Every child in Nursery has a reading pack. Inside is a story for you to share together. It is a great opportunity to spend quiet time together at the end of a busy day. When reading, encourage your child to join in with repeated parts of the story and to add actions. When you have finished, ask lots of questions about the story such as 'who is in the story?', 'where is the story set?' and 'what happened in the story?'. We will change your reading book each week, please bring in your reading pack every day.
In Nursery we take part in daily phonics sessions - these involve learning new songs and rhymes, listening to and making different sounds with our bodies and voices and finding words that rhyme.
This half term children will be taking home a 'home learning' book. Each week there will be a song, activity, story or game to play and talk about at home. New home learning will be given out on a Friday, please return by the following Thursday.
