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
             'Do Dragons exist?'
 

This half term, we will explore the fantastical world of dragons and castles. We’ll move like dragons and unearth dragon eggs from the sand. What will we find inside? We’ll dress up in royal finery and as knights, sticking to the knight’s code by working together and being kind. In our literacy lessons, we’ll imagine what could happen next to our characters and identify rhyming words. In our maths lessons, we’ll count gold coins into numbered dragon jars and move brave miniature knights from 1–10. Can we stick to the correct order? Getting creative, we’ll decorate some dragon eggs, draw a dragon and make some jewellery fit for a queen!

Help your child prepare for their project. Why not gather together a collection of books about dragons and curl up somewhere comfy to read? You could also visit the library together to research mythical beasts. Dragons breathe fire and can fly, but what can other mythical beasts do? Alternatively, make a dragon collage out of materials you have at home.
