Summer Term 2020

Welcome back Pearl class to Summer Term 2!  We are hoping you are enjoying the warmer weather and getting as much exercise as you can. This term is still very different to our usual start of the term but we will have lots of fun whilst we learn at home!

Please continue to check our nursery news page for the weekly timetables with new activities to do at home. The timetables go live at 3pm on Sundays. The timetables include a weekly phonics lesson by Miss Farah and Miss Adams and stories read by members of the Early Years team.

The topic for Summer Term 2 is ‘Growing’. Many aspects will be introduced through a range of books and animated tales in Communication, Language and Literacy.

In this topic, we will be exploring growth in humans, with links to healthy eating and healthy practises and also extending to growth in plants and some animals and insects. We will look back at ourselves as babies and compare the changes. We will be thinking, ‘When I was a baby…Now I can…’ Please send baby photos you are happy to share on our blog- the children will have lots of fun guessing whose baby photo it is!

Through this topic we will be exploring how we look after plants and animals and what they need to grow. We will be role playing vets, gardeners and mummies and daddies.

In physical development, the emphasis will continue to be on healthy living, healthy eating and exercise. In PE, lessons will focus on dance skills and making up seed and growing dances. There are also the online daily exercises with Joe Wick on YouTube as well as Lance’s weekly ‘Wednesday Workout with Lance’.

Our topic this half term offers a huge range of exciting art and craft activities including printing using a variety of fruits, vegetables and natural materials. We hope the children will enjoy this topic.

Remember, you can still share your home learning with all your friends by sending photos to the school email.  I really look forward to seeing them all!

Please look out for the weekly timetables on the nursery news page.
