Welcome to Nursery!
In nursery we are learning to do good listening and good sitting. We are also learning how to follow instructions and routines.
This term we are learning about nocturnal animals. We will be reading books such as Owl Babies and Day Monkey Night Monkey to help us understand what nocturnal animals are. Once we have read the books we will draw pictures of nocturnal aniamal and describe what our chosen animal looks like. We will also practice recallings and sequencing events from the stories.
We are also learning to count! We will do this by joining in with number rhymes, reciting the number names to 5, then 10, and then 20. We will also be learning to compare groups of objctes, saying which group has more and which has less. We are going to explore 2D shapes and find them in the environment around us. Then, we will move on to learning about catagorising objects by shape, size and colour.
We will be scientists! We will observe changes and talk about how things work. We will carry out shaddow invetigations and talk about what we can see.
As artists we will continue to mix paint to investigate colours. We will also make modles with playdoh and use our hands in messy play to feel different textures.
In RE we will be learning about Christmas and the Nativity story. We will discuss the importance of Christmas and take part in a Nativty performance.
We will be learning to follow instructions and how to take off, and put back on our shoes in PE. We will explore how to control our bodies and move in different ways to negotiate space. Through play we will also practice cutting with scissors and holding pencils correctly.
