Click the 'What kinds of jobs do grown ups do?' icon at the bottom of the page to see what we have been learning.







Along side our topic we also cover Maths, Phonics and P.E.

Phonics and Maths activities are carried out in small groups with an adult and usually last around 15 minutes. 

This term we are going to have phonics groups on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday and Maths groups on Monday, Tuesday and Friday. 


In Phonics this half term we will be covering aspects of Letters and Sounds Phase 1. Phase 1 phonics is all about developing listening skills. This is a vital skill that enables children to learn to read and write.

To encourage listening, this term we will be focusing on different aspects of Phase 1 including:

Environmental sounds, Body percussion, Rhythm and Rhyme, Alliteration, Voice sounds and oral blending and segmenting.  



In Maths this half term we will be covering:

Counting - counting up to 5 objects and matching them to numerals.

Number recognition.

​Shape - using the correct names for shapes and talking about what they look like.


In nursery we swim every other Thursday and bake every Friday.

Miss Housley takes nursery for Forest Schools every Thursday.
