Snack:

Please send a piece of fruit in your child's bag each day for snack time. During this time we will be practising our Welsh, using good manners and promoting healthy eating. Milk will be provided for your child.

 

Outdoor Learning:

Outdoor learning is very important to a child's development and helps develop physical skills, creativity, problem-solving and promotes positive wellbeing. Being outdoors supports the holistic development of children and allows them to work collaboratively, appreciate nature and the world around them and builds their confidence and self-esteem through risk taking and exploring. We enjoy outdoor learning whatever the weather so please ensure your child is dressed appropriately, for example on hot days please send a sunhat and apply sun cream before your child comes to school, and if it is raining please ensure they have a raincoat.

Central Idea

 

     

Our central idea this term is 'Here, there and everywhere'. During this project, we will be looking at different modes of transport and ways to travel.

We will be practising skills to become enterprising, creative contributors who: 

  • connect and apply their knowledge and skills to create ideas and products 

  • think creatively to reframe and solve problems 

  • identify and grasp opportunities 

  • take measured risks 

In this project we will start to question how things work. We will be getting creative, designing, constructing and creating and will explore and investigate different methods when doing so, for example we will make model planes and consider how we can make them fly, and model boats that float. 

 

 

          

Languages, Literacy and Communication

Some of the stories we will be focusing on this term include:

  • Bear on a Bike
  • The Magic Train Ride
  • Down at the Station

      

 

We will practise holding books the correct way up, turning pages individually and recognising the title, author, picture, blurb and spine of a book. We will also be discussing the characters, the main events and the sequence of the stories and talking about our favourite part of the story and why. As we will hear these stories lots of times, we will start to join in with retelling the story and will use some Talk 4 Writing activities to begin to develop our story skills. 

 

Maths and Numeracy

Maths is everywhere and our Nursery environment provides children with many rich opportunities for applying mathematical skills in everything they do, for example building, counting, number recognition, shape, problem solving, capacity and the list goes on! 

 

This term we will continue to develop our counting skills singing simple number songs, including:

 

- Five Little Ducks

- 1,2,3,4,5, Once I Caught a Fish Alive

-Five Little Speckled Frogs

-10 Green Bottles

 

Why not have a listen to the songs and see if you can sing them at home?

We will also be developing an awareness of shape and pattern in our environment, particularly looking at shapes on different modes of transport, for example square windows, circle wheels. We will use language such as straight, round, curved, corners.
