Nursery is a fundamental learning time for all children.


Early Years education is the foundation for learning positive behaviours and understanding expectations for learning in school and also to help develop social skills with other children and adults.

What are we learning about this term?


Our enquiry question this term is How Can We Express Ourselves'. 

The driver subject is Expressive Arts and Design.  



Our focus is on Phase 1 phonics, tuning in to sounds, rhymes and songs. This phase concentrates on the children’s listening and speaking skills too, all of which are the foundations to become super readers, as they progress through school.



In maths we will be counting to 5 using different methods. We will sing number rhymes, counting out objects one at a time, begin using Numicon and what these resources mean and represent, compare objects and say when they are the same, and select a given number from a larger amount. We will explore the number 5 in fun and engaging activities to develop our understand and confidence in numbers!




 ‘If a child knows 8 nursery rhymes by heart by the time they are 4 years old, they are usually among the best readers and spellers in their class by the time they are 8.’

Megan Fox, Reading Magic.


‘If you want your child to be intelligent, read them fairy tales.’

Albert Einstein


“The more that you read, the more things you will know, the more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
