Our topic this term will be 'Summer', we will be learning all about what happens in the world around us during this season, including the different colours and change in weather. 


Letters and Sounds

In September we start practising our environmental sounds, which is Phase 1 listening skills. We play listening games, use instruments, sing and discover what we can hear in our environment. 

In the summer term we start to learn Read Write Inc.



In Nursery we focus on the numbers 0-10, counting and recognising these numbers.
