Our three and four year old's classroom time will focus on the following stories : 'We're going on a Bear Hunt', 'Not a Stick!', 'Not a Box!'


We will anticipate what will happen next in the books and talk about what we see in the pictures. We will orientate books correctly, point to the pictures in a book, point to the words in a book. We will point to the first word in a book.

They will have the opportunities to relate to new stories based on their own life experiences and new life experiences at nursery - exploring the school grounds/buildings and imaginative play. 


Phonics - During our weekly phonics sessions, we will play many games that will help your child to tune into different sounds. 

They will play many games - What's in the box? Bertha the bus. Rhyming odd one out. Your child will practice oral blending while playing games and be exposed to different sounds (s, a, t, p, i, n)


Number - During our number sessions, we will focus on creating number tracks from 0-6. We will place number mats in order 0-6 and discuss 1 more/1 less. 

We will help Hodgey Podgey sort the house on to the correct number tile (by counting the windows and matching numeral and quantity). 

We will move on to help Hodgey Podgey to sort a range of objects and match them to the correct number tile. e.g. 2 socks on number 2, a car with four wheels on 4, a glove on 5. 

Hodgey Podgey needs our help!!!

Problem Solving - During our problem solving sessions, we will practice using and understanding propositions (in, on, under, behind, in front, next to, in between) by placing a range of dolls (girl, boy, grandpa, grandma, baby etc) in differnt places, such as, 'Can you put Grandma behind the bed?' 'Can you put baby under the bed?'


We will also practice using comparative language to compare lengths of objects, such as, ribbons/sticks. We will say 'My stick is longer than <name>'s stick'.


We will also compare and investigate a range of box sizes. We will work as a group to problem solve which objects will fit into different sized boxes. 


Please visit NCETM for more information on the shape, space and measure.

Our home time stories will be - Brown Bear, Brown Bear, We're going on a picnic, Triangle, The Gruffalo, There's a Superhero in my book, What to do with a box, The Naughty Bus.
