Our Learning Challenge this term is 'How toys have changed?'
In Literacy our learning is all based on the film 'Toy Story'. We will meet the different characters in the story, learn their names, learn something about their role in the story and some of the things they say. I'm sure you will remember Buzz Lightyear and his well known phrase..."To infinity and beyond!". Infact, I think there is a special message coming from Buzz to the Nursery children. We will have to read it together and find out what he has to say!
In Maths there is still lots of counting and number recognition work to do. Perhaps Buzz and his friends will be able to help us! There will be problems to solve...we will need to look for the numbers on the coins to help us in the Toy Shop, we will have to share out the toys between the children and we will have to put things in the right order (sequencing events and numbers).
Understanding the World
In this topic we will be learning about different toys...toys that we play with today, and toys that our parents and grandparents used to play with. Some will be the same, but some will be very different! We will also investigate how different toys work.
Christmas is coming!
Yes, it's not so far away, and we will retell the story of the first Christmas, and learn about all the characters through our Nativity play. The Nursery children will be joining in singing all the special songs!
