Hungry Caterpillars Class
Curriculum for summer term 1
This half term our topic is ‘Tell me a Story.’
The children will be sharing fiction books specifically traditional stories and fairy tales. We will be reading stories that the children may or ay not already be familiar with, such as Goldilocks and the Three Bears, The Three Little Pigs, Little Red Riding Hood and The Gingerbread Man.
The children will continue to develop their gross and fine motor skills which will promote mark making. Each morning the children have access to 'Funkey Fingers' which will promote their fine motor skills and encourage strength in their fingers. There will be various opportunities for the children to make marks, both inside and outside.
The children will begin to develop an understanding of how to match quantity to number, knowing how many objects are in a group together, as well as recognising different numerals in the environment, such as their door numbers, numbers on car numbers plates or road signs.
The children will develop their understanding differnt types of material and their properties, such as which ones will make a good house.
Lessons will take place every Monday morning with our PE Staff. The children will need to come to nursery wearing thier PE kits.
Please ensure that you are logged on to Class Dojo so that you can see what your child has been doing. Photos and messages will be posted regularly to show you what your child has been learning at nursery.
Drop off information
We are now encouraging you to drop your child off at the Nursery door, so they can put their own coat away, find their name independently and go into the classroom.
