Learning and Curriculum in Nursery

Our theme for this Term is 'What a wonderful world!'

Spring 1 : This topic celebrates the wonderful world we live in and the cultures and traditions from across the world. We will be focusing on 5 countries this term e.g India, Poland, Lithuania, Greece and China. We chose these specific countries to celebrate the different ethnicities within our class. Each week we will explore each of these wonderful places and implement it across all 7 areas of the EYFS curriculum.

We look forward to hearing the children's exciting ideas and observing their interests, which will further inform our in the moment planning.


Literacy

This term we will continue with our set 1 sounds through Read, Write Inc. This term children will continue to be grouped into smaller groups which will challenge them appropriately. We will also continue to share letters and sounds activities in both whole class and key worker teaching. Children will be introduced to a new sound daily whilst developing their pre-phonics skills by exploring environmental sounds,  musical instruments, body percussion, rhythm and rhyme, voice sounds and alliteration.

You can help them by sharing their home reading books with them each night and practising their letter sounds :)

Maths

This term we will be looking at separating groups of objects and matching numerals to quantities. We will continue to explore number strings daily through number songs and rhymes, shape recognition within our environment, counting with accuracy through child initiated learning and using both positional and mathematical language.                      Image result for five fingers
