Welcome to Elmtree Nursery
Spring Term 1
Our Topic this term is Bears, Bears Everywhere!
We will be welcoming new children this term. The current children in Nursery have adapted to the routine and are engaging well in their daily activities. We will be sharing our new school rules and learning to sit on the carpet to take part in group time sessions.
This half-term our topic is ‘Bears, Bears Everywhere!’ We will be reading the book ‘Bears, Bears, everywhere!’ and learning to count out objects in the book to 10 and repeating the rhyming words. We will discuss cold weather and what happens, using our senses to explore outdoors, and what we need to wear in the winter. We will also be learning the story, ‘Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?’ focusing on the different colours and animals in the story.
In phonics, we will continue to learn the initial sounds in our names, sounds that are the same (alliteration) and begin to listen to sounds in words and blend them together. We will also be learning lots of nursery rhymes and will continue acting them out and reciting them daily.
We will be distinguishing between loud and quiet sounds made by different objects and instruments. We will listen to sounds and identifying them using pictures. We will also go on listening walks exploring sounds in the outdoor environment.
In maths meetings we will introduce mathematical language such as, big, bigger than, more than, fewer than to compare objects in a variety of practical experiences. We will also continue to solve mathematical problems with numbers up to 10, by counting out and comparing quantities.
