Nursery / Reception
Hello and welcome to class N/R,
This term our topic is ‘The Farm’. This is always a favoured topic of the children, because they love learning all about the animals that live on the farm. The children become very annotated making and listening to the different animal sounds that adults make or using big macs and recording devices.
Our text this term is ‘The Little Red Hen’ but we are also reading texts such as ‘The Enormous Turnip’, ‘The Three Little Pigs’ and ‘I Love Animals’. We will be doing activities that link with the text, such as baking bread following instructions. Every morning we will be continuing to doing our daily phonics focusing on the first 3 phases.
Our mathematics focus will be on number (counting and grouping farm animals) and shape, space and measure (weighting animals and fruit and vegetables and positional language activities). We will be doing these activities every day.
During our continuous provision we will be making different farm animals with a variety of techniques such as printing and collage exploring different textures such as straw and soil and setting up a role play farm shop.
We are also very excited to go and visit a farm. We are going to ‘Thornton Hall Farm’ in the last week of term.
We can wait to show you all our hard work!!!!
The nursery/reception team
