...Welcome to Nursery...

 

Our current topic is...

Fantastic Food and Amazing Animals

 

This half-term the Nursery children will be given lots of opportunities to develop their speech, communication and language skills by talking about the animals around us and the foods they like, as well as developing their personal, social and emotional skills by forming positive relationships with their peers and adults. 

 

As part of our topic 'Fantastic Food and Amazing Animals' the children will become animal experts and food fanatics... They will have the opportunity to learn about a range of creatures through a variety of books including 'The Elephant and the Bad Baby' and 'The Tiger Who Came to Tea', along with many more. They will also get the opportunity to learn about and try new foods through the books 'Handa's Surprise' and 'Oliver's Fruit Salad'. You might like to get outside for some exercise each day and see what animals you can find in your local community. Are there any insects in the grass, dogs going for walks or birds in the sky? You can also see what the Giant Pandas (and other animals) are up to at Edinburgh Zoo on their live stream- https://www.edinburghzoo.org.uk/webcams/panda-cam/

You might like to pretend to be 'vets' at home together, taking care of toy animals.

You might like to visit food shops and talk about the different foods you can see. You could try new foods. Don't forget to add any photos on Evidence Me to show us what you have found! 

 

As a Right’s Respecting school we believe that it is very important for our children to develop positive learning behaviours and skills that will develop them as respectful citizens of our community. Therefore, we will be learning about our school values: Friendship, Respect, Kindness, Perseverance and Responsibility through stories and circle time activities.
