Our week at Nursery usually includes...

key groups and topic information to support and develop our understanding and learning

 

exploring our continuous provision both indoors and outdoors,

including a range of context-based, multisensory, vibrant, engaging activities 

 

PE sessions in the hall or outdoors using a range of equipment 

 

story, rhyme, music & movement sessions with Reception 

 

         Our Topic this half-term is
             'Can I have a Dog?'
 

How much is that doggy in the window? Can I have a dog? How will I look after it? It’s time to find out all about pets and how to care for them.

This half term, we’ll learn all about our favourite pets, sharing pictures of our furry friends and listening to our teachers as they show us their pets and tell us how to look after them. We’ll handle them gently and ask lots of questions. At school, we’ll build comfy kennels for small world pets using different materials. Our role play pet shop will keep us busy, as we’ll buy food, toys and other pet supplies for our toy pets. Using our problem-solving skills, we’ll sort pet care items using different criteria. Getting creative, we’ll use stencils to create animal prints. In our Literacy work, we’ll share books, reading animal names and exploring the initial sounds. We’ll take a walk on the wild side when we practise moving like animals. Will we curl up like a cat or run like a dog? Inspired by pictures of amazing animals, we’ll draw the pet we would like and write its name. Using our maths skills, we’ll count the dogs in different sets.
