Welcome to Apple Tree Nursery!
In nursery we have very busy the last few weeks learning all about the first Christmas story. We have supported this learning through role play including our Nativity production, learning new Nativity songs, listening to ‘The First Christmas Story’ books and exploring the small world Nativity builder tray. The children have embraced this RE topic and have really been interested and engaged in all the different learning opportunities.
In the creative area we have drawn the different senses of the nativity story, made individual Christmas cards for their families and practiced our name writing by signing the cards.
Our maths focus has been recognising numbers zero to ten and beyond and 1-1 counting; the children have enjoyed this focus especially counting our Christmas themed objects.
After the New Year in our Spring 1 term we will be exploring traditional fairy tales, The Three Little Pigs, Goldilocks and the Three Bears and The Gingerbread Man. We will be focusing on the sequencing on the story, including the beginning, middle and end and the repeated refrains including once upon a time and they all lived happily ever after. This will be an exciting topic with many different learning opportunities.
Thank you for your continued Support.
