Nursery – Pips
Pips nursery class summer term curriculum newsletter.
This half term we will be learning through the topic of transport. We will be exploring different types of vehicles. We will develop our gross motor skills riding vehicles around in the garden and will also be investigating the different aeroplanes flying over. We will do a traffic survey and discuss the different vehicles using the roads nearby. We will also be learning new songs and rhymes.
We will enjoy doing lots of sensory play, arts and crafts –learning different paint techniques, using different materials, box modelling to make cars and boats- folding paper to make helicopters and aeroplanes and modelling with dough and clay- we love to get messy! Our role play area will be a house then change to a travel agency.
We will be reading stories and looking at big books linked to our topic. We will play lots of listening games and enjoy also watching topic related videos and playing games on the computer and Interactive White Board. We will be doing some mark making work and will practice writing our names and learning to write the letters of the alphabet-whilst thinking about the sounds that different letters make.
We will practice counting different objects, recognising, writing and ordering numbers and will make pictures from different shapes we will also roll cars and vehicles down ramps to measure how far they can go!
The children will learn about the life cycle of a chicken and we will incubate hens eggs in an incubator and care for the chicks. They will learn about St George’s Day, and will make St Georges day flags and biscuits. We will also have Christian visitors in to teach us about the story of Noah’s Ark.
We will enjoy trips to Pippins Park and go on a fun trip to Legoland. Most importantly we will be playing together and having lots of fun!
