Welcome back and Happy new Year


We hope you all had a lovely Christmas and are well rested. We are looking forward to an exciting year ahead in the Nursery.


Spring Term 2023 


Traditional Tales

Our first topic this year will be Traditional Tales where the children will share lots of favourite stories such as the Three Little Pigs. Our Talk For Writing focus will be the story of the Gingerbread Man. Please see below for the abridged story text so that you can help your child learn the story at home.



We will be reading lots of stories, poems and Nursery Rhymes this term as well as traditional tales. We will explore the seasons through stories and non-fiction books about polar animals.



We will be learning to:

  • Tune into sounds all around us
  • Explore making different sounds
  • Hear initial sounds in our names and other words



We will be learning to:

  • Sing lots of number rhymes using our fingers - for example, 5 cheeky monkeys swinging in the trees, 5 little monkeys jumping on the bed, 10 in the bed, 5 little ducks go swimming one day, 1,2,3,4,5 Once I caught a fish alive.
  • Count forwards to 5 using our fingers
  • Subitise to 5 using dice and objects (this is when a child can recognise an amount of spots or objects without counting
