Spring 1 - January 2024 to February 2024

Happy New Year to you and your families! We hope that you had a blessed, peaceful and restful Christmas and New Year break and we are very excited to welcome the children back (those returning to us and our new starters) and have some fun exploring and learning this term.

Little Red Riding Hood - Traditional Tale

Our story for this term is the Traditional Tale of Little Red Riding Hood. We will support the children in learning the story by undertaking some adult led activities (like making and tasting some biscuits) and encouraging the children to participate in child led activities too. Hopefully the children will be able to act out their own re-tellings of the story by the end of the term. Who will be Little Red Riding Hood, Grandma, the Big Bad Wolf and the Woodcutter? Who will want to be the different charcacters? 


We will continue with counting numbers 1 - 5+ and the recognition of the corresponding numerals. We will also help the children to develop language that we use when comparing quantities, such as 'more than', 'less than' and fewer than. We also plan to continue with 'subitising' and introducing the idea of making a pattern.

RE - Mary the Mother of Jesus, Baptism and God's Family.

This term is going to be busy for Nursery! We will start by talking about Mary the mother of Jesus. We will ask the children to think about how special their own mothers are and what makes them special. For the latter half of this term we will be talking about and engaging the children in activities about Baptism and being part of God's Family. Hopefully we will have lots of fun along the way!

Topic - Winter and Ready for the Weather

This term we will be looking at Winter and all the changes that happen during the season. We will talk about how we can be ready and prepared for the weather. Hopefully the children will be able to experience what happens when water freezes and when ice melts. We also hope to investigate how other materials change if they are heated or cooled!
