‘A Stepping Stone into the Future’

Spring Term A

Week 1


The role play area has been transformed into a café area with different roles for the children to take on.  Two chefs, a waitress/waiter and some customers.  The adults supported the children to carry out the tasks and understand the roles, developing their language and communication skills.

Week 2

Goldilocks and the Three Bears

The children enjoyed this familiar traditional tale and loved joining in with the story, remembering the repeated refrains.  They used masks to re-enact the story using different voices for each character.

They all tasted porridge and recorded if they liked it or not using a pictogram in small groups. Most of the children had a try and liked it, even wanting seconds!

Week 3

 Chinese New Year

The cafe area has been changed into a Chinese restaurant this week. The children tasted noodles and prawn crackers.  They then recorded their likes and dislikes.

Nursery developed their scissor control by making a Chinese lantern and mark making skills to decorate a dancing dragon.

We all learned to sing a new Chinese New Year song together.

Week 4 and 5

The Very Hungry Caterpillar


The children have enjoyed and explored this classic story which is always a favourite. 

We made some fabulous pictures for a wall display including large collage caterpillars, small printed caterpillars and symmetrical painted butterflies.

Nursery talked about and produced the life cycle of the butterfly and made some delicious fruit kebabs.
