Spring Term 2023

Nursery and Nursery Plus

This term our learning will focus around ‘’The Natural World’. Each fortnight we will be looking at a new book, such as Superworm, Owl Babies and Lost and Found. In Phonics,

we will continue with our Phase 1 ‘Letters and Sounds’ activities, learning about rhyme and alliteration. In addition, we will be introducing a ‘Letter of the Week’ using fun songs and games.

The children will begin to practise name writing and letter formation in different mark making activities. Our mathematics will focus on recognition, reciting and quantity of numerals, using Numicon and the ten frame to aid visual understanding. We practise identifying 2D and 3D shapes around school and home as well as looking for patterns. Throughout the Spring and Summer terms, the children will be taking part in FootieBugs, an exciting PE program combining traditional football skills and storytelling adventures.

Finally, we will continue to develop our social skills; working together as a team, listening to each other and sharing. This will be done through lots of fun activities such as Forest school and through our school PSHE scheme, jigsaw.  

Outdoor Provision 

As part of the EYFS curriculum, the outdoor area will be available to the children throughout the year and in all weathers, lots of excellent and fun learning can take place during rain and snow. Can you please ensure that during cold months your child has gloves, a hat, and, if possible, wellies that can be left at school all year round.

Messy Play

During the year your child will be exploring, experimenting and investigating the world around them. We will therefore be using a variety of materials such as paint, sand, water, mud, etc.. So please do not be upset if your child returns home a little messy (we will of course be wearing aprons, but sometimes the fun can get away with us), it just means we have had a busy day learning. 

A Plea!

We are making a plea to parents and carers. We would love to receive donations of comics and magazines that you no longer want, along with washed out squirty bottles like ketchup bottles, milk bottles, soap liquid bottles or washing up liquid bottles that you have finished with. We would also love any yoghurt pots and toilet rolls. This will really help us to be creative.


Please ensure that everything is labelled. As children become more independent, we change pumps for PE weekly, have our coats on and off throughout the day and children’s clothing can sometimes be mixed up.
