Welcome to the Nursery Class Page
Please remember to bring books back to be changed at least once a week and remember we have a selection of games and puzzles that can be taken home to do with your child.
Please remember that show and tell is on Mondays. Please encourage your children to bring in something special to them or something they find interesting in order to share and talk to the class about.
Every Friday we have a celebration assembly in class.
Here are our SUPERSTARS for the week...
Our IPC topic this half term is 'Treasure!
Independence and Interdependence
The children will have the opportunity to work and play alone and alongside others. They will
need to co-operate in order to find the treasure and will take on other roles when taking
part in pirate role-play.
The children will listen to stories about pirates and use words and pictures to write their
own pirate storybook. They will use numbers to count coins and develop an enjoyment of
numbers when estimating how many coins in the pirate chest.
They will have the chance to make a pirate ship and develop skills of designing, cutting,
sticking and painting.
They will sing sea shanties and experience rhythm and rhyme.
The children will be encouraged to be curious and to make their own decisions when burying
and finding treasure.
Many of the pirate activities will involve them in symbolic and dramatic play.
They will classify objects by observable features such as ‘shiny’ and ‘dull’.
In order to find the treasure they will need to learn about maps and this knowledge will be
developed when they look for islands using simple atlases, maps and globes.
The children will need to pay attention and make choices during the treasure hunt. They
will also have the opportunity to talk about their emotions when they discuss their own
'We are sorting treasure'
'Look at our pirate ship'
'I'm driving ship
'I can count money'
'What is inside my treasure box?'
The Nursery follows the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. We will learn by playing, exploring, being active and through creative and critical thinking which takes place both indoors and outside.
In Nursery your child will begin to learn their sounds which will support the beginning of their reading and writing. Here are the sounds they will be learning:
