Rockets - Welcome to Nursery

The children in Rockets have settled back into nursery after their christmas break. We also welcomed five new children into our class; the children have been really friendly and have showed each other the different areas within the classroom.


Our topic for this term is our bodies and people who help us. We are going to be looking at our skeletons and how to keep our bodies healthy. We will be discussing healthy eating, looking after our teeth and exercise. We will also be looking at people who help us and how they help us. We are going to be linking this to our art work and imaginative play.



The children are going to continue learning about 2D shapes and recognising numbers. We are also going to be looking at capacity in the water trays both inside and outside, predicting how many cups it will take to fill a container and using capacity language (full, half full, half empty and empty).


Literacy / Phonics

The children take part in daily phonics activities, this term the children will be recapping over musical instruments and body percussion making and copying different rhythms. We are also going to start looking at rhyming words. Our new starters will be focusing at listening to the environment and household sounds.



We have PE on a Monday and Friday. We will be looking at space awareness and speed including changing direction. We will be starting to focus on gymnastics using balancing equipment and apparatus. We will be looking at safety when getting on and using the apparatus and how to jump off and land safely.

We encourage children to take off and put on their own shoes and socks. Please help your child practice this at home.



We have a messy table available every day with different textures for the children to explore and get creative and messy. The children will be doing lots of paintings and collage this term linked with our topic.

Lots of you have been replying to the 2Buildaprofile email which is great. It is lovely to see what the children have been doing at home. If you would like to add anything to your children’s profile simple reply to my email.

Thank you for your continued support, as always please come and see me if you have a concerns about your child and to share their achievements.
