This half term in Nursery we will be exploring the topic New Life. In Literacy we will be reading and discussing a range of stories about plants and animals and how they grow. For example, The Teeny Weeny Tadpole and The Very Hungry Caterpillar. We will be using our sounds to label lifecycle pictures and to describe the characters in the stories. We will be practising to write our names, making sure that we hold our pencils properly and using the rhymes to help us form the letters correctly. Our role play area will be a vet’s where we can look after sick animals and enjoy our pretend play with our friends. We will also be have lots of chances to paint pictures, cut and stick, draw and generally explore our classroom, both inside and outside.
In Numeracy we will be continuing to learn to count groups of objects carefully and to recognise and write numbers. We will be learning to name and match 3D shapes and to find shapes in the world around us.
We will be celebrating World Book Day by dressing up as a character from our favourite book and we will be creating special cards for our Mummy’s/Granny’s for Mother’s Day. We will also be celebrating Easter by creating cards for our families.
