‘A Stepping Stone into the Future’

Spring Term B

Week 1-3

Vet and Pets


The children were introduced to the new role-play area, the Vets.  The adults modelled the different roles in veterinary practice and the children could choose to work at the vets, or bring a pet for treatment.


The children were encouraged to talk about their pets ailments, then the vet used their medical tools to make them better.



Using dogs, bowls and dog biscuits, the children practised linking numerals and amounts.  They counted out bones to match the number card.

Understanding the World

The children developed their cutting skills with an activity about animals and their habitats, matching the pet to the correct habitat.


The children were asked to think of any pet they would like to have.  A range of materials and resources were available for them to make their pets with collage and mark making tools.  They chose where their pet would live and talked to Mrs Hughes about them.  The children made some fantastic designs, super descriptions and ideas from the children.  Nursery have made a lovely pet class display.

Red Nose Day

The children came to school either in non uniform or dressed as a Mr Men or Little Miss character and made a donation to Comic Relief.

We made some delicious Jammy Dodger biscuits to take home and decorated some huge red noses in the collage area.

Nursery had a good old dance and sing to end the day doing the Hokey Cokey.

Mother's Day

Wishing all the special ladies in our lives a very Happy Mother's Day!
