Nursery (EYFS)

Welcome to Nursery at Lakeside

This half term in Nursery our topic is:

My world

This half term Nursery are going to be exploring three core books: Handa's Surprise, Monkey Puzzle and Dear Zoo. The children are going to be using their gross motor skills to learn how to move to music from Africa, they will be trying exotic fruits and they will learn about lots of different places we might find animals. They will learn about new animals and explore their names and what they might look like, what they like to eat and where they might live. The children will be working hard on their mark making by beginning to form some letters and write their names. Furthermore, they will be exploring different phonemes and letters in phonics and have a go at using sensory trays to explore these, they will be exploring stories through small world areas and using props and instruments to support them with retelling. 
In our independent learning time, we will be exploring all of our 17 areas. We will have the opportunity to make large movements with ribbons to support our physical development, there will be large paper for the children to mark make with pencils, pens and paint and we will be learning new rhymes to support us with our maths. We will have the opportunity to go outside daily and use our maths knowledge in the sand and water. We will be developing our wider world vocabulary in the small world and loose parts areas when we are exploring minibeasts, animals and buildings. 

In our nursery we have children who are 3 year olds and 4 year olds. We offer 15 and 30 hour contracts for children - please contact the school office for more information on this offer.
