Happy New Year!


Welcome back to Rockets! 

Thank you for all your donations for our snack table last term; if you are able to, we would really appreciate donations of any of the following for our daily, healthy snack options:



Plain Cereal (rice crispies)

Ritz Crackers


Butter/soft cheese


This term we are going to be learning different nursery rhymes including:

1,2,3,4,5 Once I caught a fish alive

Humpty Dumpty

Jack and Jill

Mary had a little lamb

Sing a song of sixpence 


We are practising counting to 5 (so our nursery rhymes will help!)

Counting 1 to 5 | Number Songs | PINKFONG Songs for Children

Numberblocks - Learn to Count From 1 to 5 |

Spring Term Curriculum


This half term our learning is going to centre around 'Understanding the World' one of the 7 EYFS areas of learning.

Some of the ways we are going to enhance our learning will be through cooking; thinking about people who help us; role play and stories using story sacks.  In our outside area we are going to be planting some seeds and going on an insect hunt (once the weather is a little bit warmer...!)


Look out for some photos of our fabulous learning!
