Netherton Infant School Maryport ..................................... SAFEGUARDING IS EVERYONE'S RESPONSIBILITY


SUMMER TERM 2- 2022                                   

                                                                            Animal Madness

Our topic this half term is called Animal madness and is based around different animals. We have started by reading ‘Rosie’s Walk’ and the children have made a 3D map of Rosie’s route before drawing their own maps. The children also had a turn at being Rosie on our obstacle course focusing on the positional language. We will be reading ‘Dear Zoo', talking about what makes a good pet and why. This book will also support our Science work this term as we learn the names of different pets and their young.

Another text for the term will be ‘Handa’s Surprise’ which will support our Maths work learning about weight as well as helping us to think about different places in the world.

Spring Term 2 - 2022

When I grow up.......

We are having lots in our topic of when I grow up.... We started by looking at different objects and thinking about which occupation they belong too. The children then thought about what they would like to be when they grow up and thought carefully about the uniform they would wear. We have focused on different occupations starting with what we know and using books and internet to learn more. The children have loved using the dressing up costumes and equipment taking on different roles. We have been lucky enough to have some special visitors come into school and a trip to the Fire Station to find out all about different occupations.

Spring Term 1 - 2022


This term in Nursery our topic is 'Space'. We started the topic by asking the children what they knew about space and we were impressed with their answers.  We got messy by exploring space gloop we talked about the ingredients mix together to make the texture. Our first book we looked at was 'What ever next!' the children really enjoyed this story and used their knowledge to act out the story using props. We also made a list of what we would take to space with us like Baby Bear.

Our second story is 'Aliens love underpants' which the children found funny! We have been using playdough and different resources to make our own aliens. We also used some paint to explore mixing to create our own underpants.

We have watched videos to see the first moon landing and then listened to music to recreate it. We loved seeing how the astronauts can move in their space craft and also the food they eat.
