Curriculum News Nursery Summer Term
During the first half of the summer term we will be helping our April intake settle into nursery, helping them to feel confident and happy in their new environment, and establishing nursery routines.
The initial topic for this half term is ‘Treasure Island.’ We will be looking at creatures that live under the sea, talking like pirates and digging for treasure.
Our author for this half term is Tony Ross and our ‘Talk for Writing’ story is The Three Little Pigs. To this story we will link our creative development of constructing for a purpose.
In Understanding the World we will be looking at buildings past and present, the local area and different materials for buildings.
To help your child at home:
- Count at every opportunity
- Learn their colours with them
- Share story books with your child
- Learn simple shapes with them
- Encourage your child to dress themselves and help them fasten their coats
Our initial topic often changes when the children’s interests take us in a different direction. We will post information on the parent board in the cloakroom if this happens.
Please send in junk for model making.
