Welcome to Nursery

Welcome to Nursery. In Nursery there are lots of people who help you with your learning – Miss Talbott, Mrs Walker and Miss Sheppard.  


To ensure that children who stay in Nursery for two years are not studying the same topics twice there are 12 topics one for each of the twelve half terms in a two year cycle.

The Summer 1 topic is ‘On Safari". This topic gives us the opportunity to teach the children facts about animals and encourage them to explore the different features of some of their favourite animals.  Much of the adult led learning opportunities and some of the continuous provision will be linked to the topic.    

As part of our topic we spend time learning about how animals adapt to thier environments, looking for similarities and differences and drawing and painting images of our favourite animals.   We read a different core book each week and learn skills such as prediction, retelling, discussing our opinions and inferring the emotions of characters. 

This half term our core texts are

We're Going on A Lion Hunt
Walking Through The Jungle
We All Went On Safari
And these books from Eric Carle's 'Brown Bear' series 
Brown Bear, Brown Bear
Polar Bear, Polar Bear 
Baby Bear, Baby Bear
