Our topic this half term is called ‘Animal Crackers’ and is based around different animals. We are hoping to have some animal visitors in nursery too. We will be reading ‘Dear Zoo', talking about what makes a good pet and why and writing a new page for the book. We will also be recreating the story on our ‘Zoo’ story making table and role play area. This book will also support our Science work this term as we learn the names of different pets and their young.

We will also be learning lots of animal songs like 'The Animal Fair' and 'We’re going to the Zoo.' We are also looking forward to a yoga session based on animals. During the session we will make different animal shapes with our bodies. Throughout the half term in PE we will be moving like different animals. Our second text for the term will be ‘Handa’s Surprise’ which will support our maths work learning about weight as well as helping us to think about different places in the world. Our final texts for the half term will be ‘My Pet Goldfish’ and ‘Rumble in the Jungle.’ In Science we will be thinking about different forces and investigating whether different materials sink or float and whether different objects stretch or bend. Our art focus for this term is sculpture and we are looking forward to making animal sculptures from clay, playdough and natural materials.

As always we will be watching the weather and looking for seasonal changes around us. We are looking forward to seeing the bluebells in the Wild Garden, watching our plants grow in the growing area and watching our tadpoles turn into frogs.


Our final topic is called 'Living and Growing' and we will be retelling the traditional tale of ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ and acting it out in our dance sessions. In Science we will be planting beans in our gardening area and tasting them as well as searching for minibeasts and naming them. ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ and ‘What the Ladybird Heard’ are texts that we will be reading to support our learning about minibeasts and they will also help us with our learning in Mathematics as we practise counting, number recognition and number formation. We are looking forward to tasting some of the different foods from 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ and using them to create fruit faces in Design and Technology. 

We will be visiting the Wild Garden to look for seasonal changes and naming some of the Wild Flowers that we find there. As we are getting ready for the summer holidays we will be packing suitcases and finding out about different holiday destinations around the UK.  

The children will be visiting the Reception classrooms and playground to help them to get ready for September.  We will all be using the field to practise our activities ready for sports day as well as taking part in assemblies and using the computer suite.
