Nursery Curriculum

Nursery in the Summer Term

Welcome back after the holiday. We hope you all had a lovely break!

This half term our themes are ‘Farmyard’ and ‘Pirates’! In the first four weeks we will be identifying farmyard animals and their young. We will also be learning about their habitats. We will continue to monitor the growth of our tadpoles and as we move into summer we would like to see how your sunflowers are growing at home. Please send in pictures to the Nursery email.


In the final weeks we will be exploring ‘Pirates’ and will enjoy a Pirate Party on Monday 19th  July as an end of year celebration.

Here is an outline of a day in nursery...

8.30 - 8.45

We find our names outside and enter the classroom 

8.45 - 9.00 

We say 'Good Morning' and  talk about the weather and what we are learning about that day!

9.00 - 10.15

We can independently explore the indoor and outdoor provision. We can role-play, create, mark-make, build and much more throughout all our different areas. This is also the time when we will do a focused activity based on our weekly learning outcomes too!

10.15 - 10.30 

We sit down in a circle to do relaxation, we have a

short circle time session and have our snack!

10.30 - 11.10 

We all go outside to explore the outdoor provision


11.10 - 11.30 

We come back inside to sit on the carpet and have a

story or a whole-group activity.

 11.30 - 12.15

Some of us will have our lunch now and some of us

will go home! 

In the afternoon we have the same routine but

different activities!

We will be continuing to learn 'Set One Sounds' and beginning 'Fred Talk'  (segmenting and blending words) in our RWI phonics sessions. 

You can find the mnemonic that we use to teach the sounds below. 

There are also videos on Google Classrooms to help your child learn the Set 1 Sounds. 

Over this half term we will be learning the following nursery rhymes.
