We can’t wait to tiptoe through the deep dark woods and meet all the forest creatures that live there in this exciting part of the term.
Our Mini topic title for Nursery this half term is ‘Light and Dark’. We will be finding out about Diwali, the 'Hindu Festival of Light.’ Following that, we will be reading the book ‘Owl Babies’ as well as other forest tales and learning about nocturnal animals and animals that live in our woods. Role play and small world tables will support our learning about nocturnal animals. In art we will be making hedgehogs and owls from different media . We will be reading the book ‘Whatever Next’ thinking about night time and the dark. In Science we will be using torches to explore light and dark. In Geography we will be exploring simple maps and using vocabulary like ‘next to’ and ‘behind’.
In maths we will be continuing to develop our number knowledge and learning more number songs like ‘5 little owls’ and ‘5 little fireworks’. We will also be solving autumn number problems like how many spikes are on our hedgehogs. Times of the day will also be an important theme for this term and we will be sorting pictures into day time and night time as well as thinking about morning, afternoon and night.
As the term continues, we will begin to get ready for Christmas by learning songs to sing around the Christmas Tree. We will also be getting excited for some very special and magical visitors!

Snowdonia National Park
One of the children visited Snowdonia National Park in Wales in the summer half term and climbed up 'Wr Wddfa.' Mount Snowdon the highest Mountain in Wales. We are so proud and amazed at his accomplishment and we watched the video and looked at pictures of his amazing achievement and family holiday which was shared with us on Tapestry, we saw the mountains and waterfalls and the children asked lots of questions, someone wondered if a troll lived under a bridge near the river, but our friend told us there was not one. We enjoyed hearing all about the hike and the holiday, thank you for sharing. We are going to find out more about Wales
Summer Term 2 2023
We can’t wait to explore the ocean as we dive into the second half of the summer term with a splash in our topic
Fun At The Seaside 🧜♀️🐋
We have some wonderful stories, poems and non fiction books to excite and inspire curiosity and a love of reading.
Our chosen author this second half of the term is Julia Donaldson and we will be exploring different parts of our amazing world as we begin our travels with the wonderful story of the snail and the whale.
Summer Term 2023
Our topic for the start of the term is Fairy Tales
Fairy tales spark imagination and allow children to confront real-life anxieties in fantastical settings. Fairy tales can also help your children deal with difficult emotions and find a hero or heroine they can relate to as well as providing an important role in their early literacy skills and helping to develop a love of reading.
We can't wait to climb the stalk and stretch our imaginations above the clouds.

We are lucky enough to be able to learn about the lifecycle of the frog with frogspawn collected from our own school pond.
Here are some of the new words you may hear us using.
Spring Term 2023
Spring Term 2
We have been to space and now this second half of the term we are running up a clock and jumping over the moon with a mini topic of nursery rhymes.
Please Scroll To The Bottom of the Page for More Codes to Rhymes & Other Links
Rhymes are fantastic vocabulary boosters. They often feature a pleasing rhythmic pattern and simple repetitive phrases that babies and young children find easy to remember and repeat. In order to develop their phonological awareness, children need to be repeatedly exposed to spoken language and nursery rhymes provide the perfect way to do this.
The opportunity to ‘act out’ a favourite rhyme will be a welcome activity for active minds and fidgety bodies. Physical participation in action songs encourage children to develop their fine and gross motor control skills as well as balance, coordination and the skills needed to follow simple instructions.
Counting songs (e.g “Five Currant Buns”) help to develop a familiarity with number sounds and words in a way that is fun and interesting to a young child. Songs such as ‘When Goldilocks Went To The House Of The Bears’ also introduce the concept of scale, size and order. Familiarity with counting songs provides the foundation for crucial numeracy skills and awareness.
Children find many nursery rhymes very relatable to their own everyday experiences and will enjoy sharing these moments with us and their friends such as a trip to the park with Daddy to feed the ducks (Five Little Ducks), or sharing a picture book with a Grandparent about boats (Row Row Row Your Boat).
The act of singing a rhyme or engaging with it physically, encourages children to express themselves in a creative way and to find their own personal ‘voice'. Role play opportunities present themselves with different characters and events within the rhyme that the children can respond to either individually or as a group. Open-ended play opportunities are also possible.
