Term 4

We hope you had a fantastic Easter break. The children have settled back into the Nursery routine well.

What are we learning this half term?

We will be exploring the following books: Stanley’s Café, Supermarket and The Very Hungry Caterpillar. These books are from Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library so you might have these at home already. We will be exploring what equipment is used in a café and discussing what could be on a menu. We will be counting and recalling the different fruit that the caterpillar eats in The Hungry Caterpillar story.


We will begin to solve practical number problems such as finding the total number of items in two groups (an introduction to addition).

Communication Language and Listening (CLL)

We will continue to explore stories to develop the children’s ability to remember, recall and think of different story endings. We will also continue with activities to support the children’s ability to hear sounds in words as well as blending simple words.

What you can do at home to help your child?

Play games such as I spy where your child will be listening for initial sounds in words. Continue to use the letter strip to support your child to recognise and say the letter sounds.

Early Essence

Thank you very much if you have accessed the system to upload pictures or videos of what your child has been learning at home. If you need support to log on to the system please ask a member of the team.


Dragonflies, Caterpillars and Spiders groups (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday) on a Monday and Ladybirds and Spiders (Wednesday, Thursday and Friday) will be on Fridays. Please ensure your child comes to school with normal uniform on top and either shorts, jogging bottoms or leggings. We will be practising throwing and running skills outside, (weather permitting) therefore children can wear their trainers to Nursery (preferably with Velcro fastenings) for this purpose.

Safe in the sun

Please ensure your child has a sun hat and sun cream which needs to be applied before coming to nursery.
