What are we learning about in Robin Class?

 

 

This half term our topic is ‘My World’ where we will be learning about why each child is unique and special, the importance of family and about the new Nursery environment.  After half term, the topic ‘Celebrations’ explores various festivals and important events.

 Teaching and learning will be linked  to all seven areas of the curriculum; focusing on particular rhymes and stories which will be shared weekly (see links below).  

 

Please click on the link below to access the presentation from our Nursery Curriculum meeting held in September which gives examples of the Areas of Learning together with useful information.

Through our topics we will also be using every opportunity to develop spiritual, moral, social, and cultural values- encouraging children to: explore beliefs and experiences; show respect for faiths, feelings and values; learn about themselves, others and the surrounding world; use imagination and creativity as well as  reflect.  

Please refer to the medium term planning below for more details.

  • Letters and Sounds

In Nursery we follow the Letters and Sounds programme and we focus on phase 1.  This phase helps prepare the children for learning their alphabet sounds to be able to learn to read later on. It concentrates on developing children's careful listening skills.
