Welcome to Apple Tree Nursery

Our team consists of:

          Mrs Burn – Class Teacher

          Miss Billings – Teaching Assistant
          Mr Bryan – Teaching Assistant

We are learning

Our Topics this term are Explorers and Traditional Tales.


For the first half term we will be looking at space and the planets in it.  We will be discussing how astronauts work in space and about their space ship.  In maths we will be counting to ten and counting down from ten as part of our role play related to the spaceship. We will also look at shapes in pictures of rockets. We will then look at dinosaurs and develop our language related to size and describing words.


In the second half we will be doing activities based around traditional tales like ‘The Three Little Pigs’ and ‘Little Red Riding hood.’ This topic will also be used to develop our story telling skills and writing language.


We will continue to have carpet sessions to develop good sitting and listening skills, taking turns and sharing ideas with each other.  In these times we will introduce activities to develop their knowledge of the sounds in the alphabet and how they are formed.  We will also practise how to put them together to make short words.
