Summer Topic

All of the Nursery staff would like to welcome all of you back, and we hope you have all had an egg-cellent Easter. The staff and I cannot believe how we have hopped right into the final term of the school year. Once again we are all very proud and amazed at how well your children performed on stage for the Easter Bonnet, it was an absolute success.

Our topic is ‘Land before Time' which will be taught through the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum, including the following areas of learning:  Religious Education; Communication and Language; Physical Development; Personal, Social and Emotional Development; Literacy; Mathematics; Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design. 

In RE, we will be learning about: Month of Mary, Pentecost, The Bible, Special occasions and Collective Worships.

We will discover lots of different stories which relate to the Topic. The children will have access to the Dinosaur explorer’s role play, making props, sing songs, write captions and labels, design posters, make fossils and much, much more!

As we are heading into the summer term please don’t forget to bring labelled Sun cream in for your child to wear, as we are hoping and praying for many sunny days.
