 Summer Term 1


This term in Nursery we shall be continuing to have lots of fun whilst learning through play. We shall start the term with an investigation-‘How did Humpty Dumpty fall of the wall?’ The children shall engage in some detective work and will explore concepts such as living things and growing.

We shall also be starting our dinosaur topic and learning about the ‘Pantasaurus’ Underpants Rule! This NSPCC programme of study teaches children about appropriate touch and how to keep our ‘privates’, private.

The older nursery children shall also start our whole school phonics programme-Read, Write Inc. Please check out this link on how to say each sound

Number formation home-work shall go out this half term to encourage the children to form their numerals correctly. We have included a guide with rhymes to help with this.

We continue to remain committed to providing exciting and purposeful learning opportunities for all our Nursery children. Early Years staff have recently been part of a research project on early language and communication which seeks to ensure all children have the language and communication skills to become successful and confident learners.

Home-School Links

Remember we have our ‘Welcome’ Wednesday drop in’s for those parents who would like to stay and play. We shall also have our termly information meeting this half term-the focus shall be early reading.

Thank you for your ongoing support.

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
