Spring Term 2 - February to March 2023

Welcome back! We hope that you had a relaxing half term break and we are looking forward to spending this half term preparing for Easter and hopefully welcoming warmer weather and brighter days ahead. We hope to be planting seeds and tidying up our garden area along with arranging a Tea Party for the children and families before we finish this term for the Easter holidays. Please watch the website for updates each week.

The Tiger Who Came to Tea by Judith Kerr

The Tiger Who Came to Tea will be our model text for this half term. Once again the children will engage in activities related to this classic. The activities will include planning a tea party and making invitations for a special guest. Will the children find it strange that a Tiger was asked to join Sophie and her mum for tea? And what will we find out about 'real' tigers that live in the wild? Do they eat huge tins of 'Tiger food'?

We will continue to count with the children and also start to talk about and explore 2D and 3D shapes (for example, circles, rectangles, triangles and cuboids) using informal and mathematical language: ‘sides’, ‘corners’; ‘straight’, ‘flat’, ‘round’ etc. We hope to also start making comparisons between objects relating to size, length, weight and capacity.

Topic - Springtime/ Animals

We will explore our outdoor environment and watch how the weather changes and what happens to nature as Spring approaches. We will find ways of comparing and contrasting these changes and try some planting and gardening. We will also look at different wild animals (linked to our story) hopefully to also compare and contrast their differences in terms of size etc (linked to our maths).   

RE - God's Family, Lent and Holy Week

It is a busy half term for us in Nursery! We will be talking about what it is like to be part of God's Family, learning about how we can say sorry and how we can prepare for the most important event in our church's calendar, Easter!
