Welcome to Little Oaks.
On this page you will find all the latest information,news and photos from our fun learning days in the Nursery Class. I hope you enjoy looking and reading!
Topic this half term is
Is it Shiny?
All that glitters is not gold! Is it shiny? Does it sparkle? It’s time to find out more about materials and their properties.
Next term, we’ll hunt for missing treasure and discuss whether the treasure we find is shiny or not. We’ll watch how shiny objects catch the Sun when we hang them outside.
We will group and sort different objects. From what are they made? For what are they used? Looking at different types of mirrors, we’ll investigate how our reflections look different in each one.
We’ll also find out about stars.
In literacy, we’ll sing along to the nursery rhymes, such as Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star, and we’ll use tools to write letters and numbers.
Using our maths skills, we’ll write numbers in sequins and build structures out of shiny 2-D and 3-D shapes, naming the shapes and sorting them by size.
Getting creative, we’ll become glitter monsters as we explore the texture and appearance of glitter, bake a batch of firework cookies, make space rocks and mould twinkle lamps out of clay.
We will be learning lots more!! Its going to be full of fun and mess!
Children have expressed a lot of interest in this topic and have suggested activities and topics they would like to learn about, these will be taken into account and used for planning of lessons.
PE is on a Thursday of every week and children are required to wear their PE kits to school.
