Spring Term 2

Welcome back to the second half of our Spring Term and the continuation of our Traditional Tales theme. We are really excited about delivering this half terms provision to the children which will have a huge focus on reading and emotional literacy. Storytelling and language have a huge impact on children’s learning and ability to use language. This ability is one of the indicators used to determine the success of a child in future life. Although our children are very young it is vital we immerse them in the language of storytelling both in school and at home. With this in mind this term seeks to combine traditional storytelling with drama, rhyme and song to promote children’s ability to soak up language and to make sense of it in relation to their daily lives. Although this is what we always do throughout Early Years, we are focusing on the use of storytelling to improve children’s language, emotional literacy and well-being and shall be assessing the impact of this on the children’s progress within these areas.

This term will also see us meet ‘Pantasaurus’ and the NCPCC Underpants Rule, which teachers children about appropriate touch and what to do if they are put in an inappropriate situation.

Look out for dates for out Mother’s Day Stay and Play session which provide you with the opportunity to view your child’s learning journey, watch them interact in their learning environment and discuss progress and well-being with your child’s teacher.

Well done to all the children who have completed or tried hard to complete their home challenges. New class learning challenge targets shall be given during the first few weeks of this term. Don’t worry if your child has not met last terms target, last term was only short and the majority of children are only in nursery for 15hrs.

We are also looking forward to this terms visit to church to celebrate Easter and to share the ‘Good News.’

Thank you for continuing to support us in your child’s learning.

Sensational Stories-Narrative Immersion (making story-telling matter)

Next week we shall be beginning our work on narrative immersion. The idea behind the project is to immerse children in story through different techniques including stoy-telling, role-play, hot seating, song and dance. Once a  week Nursery and Reception shall work together engaging in a range of additional activities which supports the Early Years Curriculum and the Characteristics of Effective Learning. We shall be using the Book Paddington Bear as our text to explore a range of themes including relationships, loss and responsibility.

First we would like to say a big "Welcome back" to all our children and to our new starters! We are very excited to welcome you into our school family and are looking forward to sharing special times with you all.


This half term we shall be focusing on 'Growing.' The story of Jack and the Beanstalk shall help us to explore how a seed grows. We shall be planting and observing how things grow and will be making comparisons between plants and animals (ourselves!!).


We shall also be looking at mini-beast and being bug detectives. This focus will see us use information texts to find out about insects. The story 'What the Ladybird Heard' will lead us onto our 'Farmyard' topic.


Over the next few weeks we shall be looking at Farmyard Animals as part of our growing work. We shall be visiting Farmer Teds in Formby for our Summer trip on Thursday 3rd May. Letters shall follow. This experience shall allow the children the opportunity to meet and feed the animals and find out about life on the farmyard.


We are looking at the theme of 'Pentecost' in our 'Come and See' work. We shall be understanding the importance of 'Good News' and how Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to allow us to live on. Our own good news shall be a focus this term and parents shall be receiving something special in the post!!


This term phonic homework shall be sent home to encourage phonic development. There will be information to explain what to do. If in doubt please ask a member of staff.


These topics will act as vehicle to drive learning through the curriculum. In addition to this we will be ensuring that the children's own interest are followed and planned for in order to make learning purposeful and exciting for individuals.




The EYFS Curriculum is a play based curriculum which provides rich and creative learning opportunities for all children. Initially there is a focus on the 'Prime' areas of learning and development (Communication, and Language, Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development) to ensure that children are given a strong and sturdy starting point. This is followed by 'Specific' areas of learning and development (Literacy, mathematics, Understanding of the World and Expressive Arts and design).


Nursery children shall also be starting to learn phonics (sounds) as part of our focus on early reading. We will be experimenting with environmental sounds and singing lots of songs and rhymes.


We do hope that your child enjoys their experience with us, and are more than willing to listen to any suggestions or ideas that you have for promoting learning.


Thank you for your ongoing support
