Our school's Learning Challenge this term is 'Which plants would Little Red Riding Hood find in our allotment?'
In Literacy our special stories are 'Little Red Riding Hood' and 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears'. These traditional tales are fantastic for retelling and sequencing. The children will use small world play with puppets and role play with character masks to act out the stories, and we will focus particularly on the characters and the story setting.
In Maths the children will now begin to look at 'one more' and 'one less', and extend their number recognition skills. They will continue to work with 2D shapes, focusing on describing the shapes and knowing their shape names.
Understanding the World
In this topic we will be focusing particularly on growing. We will be planting seeds in our outdoor area, hoping to grow flowers, herbs and vegetables. We will encourage the children to care for the garden area and to watch and talk about the changes that they see.
We will also look at other 'scientific' changes through activities such as baking cakes and making porridge!
At the end of term we would like the children to bring their favourite traditional tale to Nursery, and tell us all about it!
