Nursery

Our spring term topic is ‘In the Garden’

During the first half term we will be focusing on minibeasts. Pupils will have opportunities to develop into ethical informed citizens and understand that their actions have an impact on the world and the minibeasts in it. Pupils will be exposed to a variety of different activities to develop their understanding of different minibeasts, habitats, life cycles and how we use our senses to access the world around us.

 

During the second half term we will be contributing to the whole school ‘Bee’ topic. As a school we have developed a partnership with Sony to nurture our very own bee’s and harvest MYH honey. Pupils will have the opportunity to develop into enterprising creative contributors through the development of a ‘Bee Friendly Garden’. They will develop a variety of cross-curricula skills through the development of our garden. Pupils will learn about the life cycle of a bee and why they are such an important part of our world. Pupils will carry out research to plan a bee friendly garden that will promote the conservation of bees. Pupils will develop an understanding of living things through growing their own plants and caring for the environment in our garden.

 

Literacy

 

Pupils will be exposed to a variety of writing genres this term, including, a simple recount of our school trip to Plantasia, creating posters for our bee friendly garden, writing lists of equipment and following instructions to plant and grow flowers and plants. We will also be introducing Read Write Inc, which is our whole school phonics programme. Pupils will learn one sound a week and be exposed to these sounds within their daily activities and play. They will also develop their fine motor skills through daily dough disco and handwriting sessions.
