Summer Term 2022

Welcome to the Summer term at Nursery. We are very excited about our new topic, 'Jack and the Beanstalk'. The children will be planting a variety of beans and discussing what plants need to grow. We will talk about different parts of the plant and look at the different things that grow within the school grounds. The children will have the opportunity to explore simple non-fiction texts and look at diagrams and listen to and follow instructions relating to gardening and growing. We will be making comparisons between how we look after ourselves and how we look after plants. In Physical Development, the children will learn a Jack and the Beanstalk dance, yoga and throwing and aiming with bean bags. The children will practise climbing and going up steps with alternate feet. The children will discover ways to measure beanstalks and giant footsteps. Of course, we will be reading the story Jack and the Beanstalk, the children will be; role-playing, sequencing the story and shouting 'Fee Fi Fo Fum' as loudly as they can! 

After half term, we are excited to introduce a brand-new topic - Castles! We would love to hear if you have visited any castles or if there is anything in particular you would like to learn about.
