WHAT ARE WE LEARNING ABOUT?
Summer Sun, Sea and Fun!
Our Early Years theme for this term is a Summer Sun, Sea and Fun!
Following the glorious sunshine enjoyed over the Whit holidays by many of our Nursery children and hearing so many reports of trips to the seaside and holidays by the beach, we have decided to celebrate summer with a topic based on summertime and seaside fun.
With the seaside being our starting focus we will be encouraging the children to lead where the topic will take us! Will it be exploring the oceans of the world and learning more about under the sea animals, will we learn more about travelling the over, across and under the sea or maybe the chaos caused by pirates living out at sea?
The focus for teaching and learning will continue to be in the Prime Areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum which are Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Language and Communication and Physical Development.
|PERSONAL, SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL DEVELOPMENT (PSE)|
|LANGUAGE AND COMMUNICATION|
Nursery 2 children will continue to have daily phonics sessions this term. The quick 20 minute sessions will have a focus on words. Making sounds in words with our mouth and hearing different parts of a word (phonemes and syllables)
Once settled, Nursery 1 children will listen to and join in with rhymes and familiar stories to develop listening and attention skills.
Young children's physical development includes the way they move around the inside and outside areas of Nursery and those smaller movements which require more control so pouring, drawing and manipulating for example construction and playdough. It also includes self care so toileting, feeding, dressing and having an awareness of our surroundings and what you are doing so that you are safe.
