Summer Term 6 - June - July

Summer Term 2

June - July 2017

Week 1 - 6th June - 10th June 2017


This week the children have been introduced to their pirate topic. Miss Latchford sent the children a letter containing clues about a pirate who had been in school! The children then painted pictures of pirates using the clues and thought of pirate names. We had lots of funny names including "Pirate Pete" "Pirate Frank" "Pirate Ginger" "Pirate John" "Pirate Craig" and "Pirate Peter Parker". The pictures below show some of the children's lovely paintings.

Week 2 - 13th-17th June 2017


This week the children have been telling their own pirate stories. We have used the small world pirate toys to encourage the children to use their imaginations and share their stories with their friends. We have also had lots of fun dressing up and playing in the pirate tent.

Week 3 - 20th-24th June 2017


Our focus story this week has been Noah's Ark. We have read the story and then sue dour mark making skills to write about the story. The children have painted some lovely pictures of animals and printed and counted sets of animals. We have used the children's work to create a lovely new display in our water area.


We have also explored floating and sinking this week. The children looked at familiar objects and predicted if they would float or sink. You can explore floating and sinking at home by clicking the link below.


Week 4 - 27th June - 1st July


This week have been reading one of our favourite stories Dear Zoo. All the children love this story and they all join in when sharing the book with the nursery staff and their friends. The children had fun playing animal lotto, writing about their favourite animal in the story and thinking about the types of animals they would like to have at home.
