Spring Term 1


Places and Journeys

This term the children in Nursery will be learning about our capital city London.

Using our skills to explore our theme, we will be focusing on the story ‘The Train Ride’ by June Crebbin. Where will we go? Who will we meet? We will be researching lots of different places around where we live in London and where we can visit on our train.

As Writers we will be writing our own train journey adventure.

As Readers we will be creating fun ways to re-enact our books, using props, displays and story maps.

As Mathematicians we will be exploring the difference between flat shapes and solid shapes.

As Scientists we will investigate different types of vehicles and explore the way they move.

As Geographers we will be developing our map reading and drawing skills.

As Artists and Designers we will create our own mosaic transport pictures and build a train for our role-play area.

As Historians we will be researching into old and new transport inventions.

As Theologians we will explore celebrations and traditions across the world this time of year.

As Philosophers we will develop our speaking and listening skills, aiming to listen and respond respectfully to the ideas of others and justify our own opinions.
