Rainbow Nursery

This half term in Nursery, the main focus will be settling pupils into a regular routine and supporting them in their journey to becoming independent learners and individuals.

Our topic is Pets which will be explored through the class Power of Reading book, ‘Oh No, George!’ which is a story about a dog called George who wants to be good but doesn’t always make the right choices.  This story encourages prediction and invites participation from listeners. It provides a platform to discuss making the right choices.

In English, Nursery will be given the opportunity to talk about any pets they may have or would like to have and share their family lives with their peers. They will find out about similarities between themselves and others. This will lead to drawing pictures of themselves, their family and their pets and learning new vocabulary to describe what they have created. In addition to this, the pupils will learn to identify and name the feelings and emotions they can experience on any day.

We will begin with a focus on listening skills and sound-making. Pupils will begin to distinguish between sounds such as environmental, instrumental and vocal sounds. They will then progress on to oral blending and segmenting speech.

Nursery will also begin to recognise their own name. They will be taught to mark make using a variety of media such as pencils, paint and sensory writing bags and begin to represent letters.

The role play area in Nursery will be a ‘Veterinary Surgery’ where pupils will have the opportunity to act out a real life experience. They will take on the role of a veterinary surgeon or a veterinary nurse and treat sick animals. In the outdoor area, the theme will be continued with a ‘Pet Shop’ where the pupils will use mathematical language, learn new vocabulary and develop their mark making skills when filling in order and receipt forms.

In Mathematics, the pupils will become familiar with numbers and counting.  The pupils will practise these skills through every day experiences, such as counting toys or blocks. We will be using number rhymes and songs to support their learning and we will be providing pupils will lots of practical opportunities to embed these skills.

In Art, pupils will have the opportunity to use a variety of media to create pieces of art based around pets, such as the use of junk modelling to create a house for their pets.

We look forward to lots of exciting learning opportunities ahead!
