St Anne's Infants' School


Reach for the Stars

Term 2

Having successfully spent term 1 getting to know each other, we are looking forward to another exciting term in Nursery. 


We will be using 2 traditional tales as a stem for much of our learning this term.  The first story will be The Little Red Hen followed by The Gingerbread Man.  We will be using the books to give the children an opportunity to develop their listening, understanding and speaking skills, whilst expanding their knowledge in all other areas of the early years curriculum.  We will be learning about sequencing and problem solving using Bee-Bot which is a small robot and we'll also have the opportunity to become a chef and develop our cooking skills.  In week 3, watch out for our surprise visitors who are sure to put a smile on all the children's faces.   


We will begin to use our whole school teaching programme to continue to build upon our personal, social, emotional development.  Through our Jigsaw scheme of work, we will be focussing on celebrating differences.


Each child will be given three individual next steps which they will be working towards during the term.  These will be shared with parents and carers at parents evening and via Tapestry.  It would be great if you could use Tapestry to share any progress you see your child making towards these challenges at home.   


We are going to begin to explore Letter and Sounds phase 1 this term.  Letters and Sounds is a phonics resource published by the Department for Education and Skills in 2007. It aims to build children's speaking and listening skills in their own right as well as to prepare children for learning to read by developing their phonic knowledge and skills.  You will find more information about this on the Nursery home page.   


As always, if you have any questions please don't hesitate in talking to one of the Nursery team.
