Welcome to Nursery
Class Teacher: Mrs Mahmood
Nursery Nurse: Mrs Hannon
Welcome back to our last term at Nursery! Summer 1, our topic will be Growing and Gardening and in Summer 2 our topic will be Traditional Tales.
Our texts will be Jasper’s Beanstalk followed by The Giant Turnip in Summer 1. We will be exploring these texts using different media and play such as growing our own beans, taking care of, and growing vegetables in our very garden patch! We will be looking out for seasonal changes that our vegetable patch will need to grow.
In Summer 2, our texts will be The Three Billy Goats Gruff followed by Goldilocks and the Three Bears and The 3 little pigs. We will be exploring these texts and retelling the traditional tales through story stones, mark-making using different media and role-play. We will need to make a shopping list to make our porridge and then we will write the recipe of how we did it!
Each week your child will learn a new sound (speed sounds). We will send a formation sheet home every week to support letter formation.
In addition, children will continue to blend simple words using the sounds they know for example:
Some children have received a ‘Sound Blending’ book to take home. Please support your child at home.
We will continue to work on recognising the numerals 1-10 in and out of order. We will be working on matching some numerals to quantity correctly. We will introduce the different coins that we use to buy our food and drink at the supermarket. The children will be using our role-play shop area to help to recognise different coins. Additionally, we will be expanding and using lots of new mathematical language to describe and order objects, e.g. putting the three bears’ bowls in order from biggest to smallest and naming the Billy Goats from shortest to tallest.
- Continue to support your child to write their name.
- Pencil control/ grip: please watch the video shared on Google classroom
- Please continue to practice counting and writing numbers 1-10 in order and out of order
- Continue to practice the names of 2D shapes (triangle, square, circle and rectangle)
- Read stories and ask questions to build their understanding about the characters
- Please continue to practise removing and putting on shoes and clothes with your child
- Talk about healthy eating. Compare healthy and unhealthy food items.
- Talk about feelings and emotions. Ask your child about how they feel.
Thanks for all your support!

We will be discussing the size of objects using comparative language such as big/little, tall/short, fat/thin to group and order them.
