Summer 1 overview

This half term, we will be reading ‘The Everywhere Bear’ by Julia Donaldson and Rebecca Cobb. We will be beginning to make predictions about what the story is about and will be able to talk about different parts of the story- beginning, middle and end. We will also be learning the meaning of new vocabulary.  


Understanding the world...

We will be celebrating religious festivals such as EID and learning from children and their families.

Children will be learning about the importance of looking after our environment, for example, recycling, and living things.



In Maths we will continue to explore 2D and 3D shapes. We will also be comparing objects relating to size, length, weight and capacity. We continue to develop mathematical vocabulary in our learning.



Children are enjoying key group welcome and activities. We are encouraging more independence in nursery such as putting on their own coats, using the toilet independently and washing their hands. 

Most children will be starting their transition period into reception class and being able to communicate their feelings about this next stage.



This half term we will be using role play to use our imagination in order to tell stories. Children will create their own props and use different tones and actions to recreate their story.



We are beginning to understand safety rules when in the hall for P.E. Children will enjoy moving in a variety of ways and will negotiate space. Children will continue to develop fine motor skills through the use of loose parts, using scissors and writing opportunities.  



We are continuing to have daily phonics through phase 1 and some children will begin set 1 of the Read, Write, Inc scheme that is followed throughout school. We have continuous writing and reading opportunities throughout sessions in our continuous provision and weekly adult directed tasks.


In nursery, children's interests are followed and learning is based around these, so this can be subject to change.
