Nursery Learning Letter

Spring 1


Welcome back, we hope you had a fantastic Christmas break and are ready for the New Year.

This half term we have welcomed some new starters to our Nursery and we hope that they are enjoying their time with us so far.

Our focus this half term is ‘Space’. We will be exploring shapes as we make shape aliens and rockets with different 2D shapes and 3D foam shapes. We will be creating aliens in the play dough, our role play area and Small World Area will be turning into a Space Station!

The stories that will be our main focus linked to this topic are ‘What Ever Next?’, ‘Aliens in Underpants’, and ‘Toys in Space’, followed by lots of creative and educational activities.

The Cross-Curricular week this half term is PSHE and DT. This will be held week commencing Monday 4th February and our topic is Chinese New Year. This will involve learning how to say Good Morning in Chinese, exploring Chinese symbols for letters and numerals, creating Chinese Lanterns and learning about traditions followed and celebrations celebrated in China for New Year. We invite children to wear something red or something linked to Chinese New Year on Friday 8th February to help celebrate.
This year is the year of the Pig!


All of the planning for each week is available to read in the Nursery cloakroom along with the latest school newsletter which includes important dates and information. Please feel free to pop in and have a look.


Please remember we are here to help and are always available to answer any questions that you may have.


Many thanks

Mrs Hamilton and Miss Robertson
