The Latest Nursery & Reception Learning Update!

We have a new topic for this Spring 2 term which is Let’s Grow. This week we learned about how plants and animals grow and read the book titled ‘Ten Seeds’ We learned about the life cycle of a plant. We practised using new vocabulary in sentences as we engaged in our learning.

In phonics, we learned alliteration and practised identifying the first letter sounds of the name of familiar objects or names.  

In Physical Development, we moved like some of the animals in our topic book and practised our tripod grip whenever we wrote such as name writing opportunities to label our work. We practised our scissors skills when cutting out petals for leaves  for our role play area, and used painted flowers whilst talking about the different parts of a flower.

In PSED, we reminded ourselves about the rules of our nursery and introduced them to our friends who have just joined us. We emphasised on the importance of waiting for our turns, sharing and carpet rules such as putting our hands up when we want to share our ideas.

In EAD, we expressed our feelings and ideas through music and dance as we pretended to be plants growing from a seed to a blossoming flower.

In maths, we revisited and consolidated our number knowledge by singing nursery songs which enabled us to count up and back down. We enjoyed finishing off puzzles independently and with our friends. We also had tea parties where we engaged in conversations which were important to us.

In UW, we learned about how to look after plants and what plants need to grow.

Next week, we will be finding out more about plants by planting our own plants and reading about them in our topic book called ‘ Lola Plants a Garden’
