Key Information

Our Talk for Writing book this term

Welcome to the Nursery class page


We hope you all had a great half term break from school and are feeling well rested.

Please find all the information for the term ahead.


Term 2

This term, we are looking forward to lots of exciting activities and opportunities for learning. The term starts with Halloween fun for the children, followed by Bonfire Night with a focus on light and colour. We start our Talk for Writing approach to Literacy (see below) together with our first Forest School sessions at Frogmore. As an extra treat, the children will be visiting a play village in the Community Hall at school where they can explore a range of role play themes. Then before long it is Christmas with our Nativity production!



The children have built some firm friendships as a class and are particularly kind and considerate to each other. You can help your child at home by reminding them to use:

  • Kind hands
  • kind words
  • walking feet
  • inside voices
  • listening first time, every time
  • ready for leaning
  • respect each other and our toys


Talk for Writing (TfW) and literacy

This term we will be reading the story, We're Going on a Bear Hunt, in more depth and learning to retell the story. We will send home story maps later in the term to help your child retell the story to you. Some of the text will be shortened and we will share this with you as well.



We will be learning to:

  • Count accurately to 5
  • subitise numbers to 3 (recognising an amount without counting - for example, spots on a dice, shapes of numicon, shapes of numberblocks)
  • Use 1:1 correspondence when counting objects and actions
  • understanding the oneness of 1 and the twoness of two etc.



We will be learning to:

  • Tune into sounds all around us
  • Explore making different sounds
  • Hear all the initial sounds in words
  • Oral segment and blend using robot talk, for example cat becomes c_a_t (your child does not need to be able to recognise letters or words to do this, they just need to be able to hear the sounds)
