Term 5: What Makes a Good Pet?

Welcome to term 5 where we will be learning all about pets, vets and caring for other living things. This project is full of animals and exploration and our role play area is transformed into our very own veterinary surgery!

The children will be provided with lots of mark making opportunities this term from filling out forms in the vet role play, to creating receipts in the pet shop. We will continue our focus on both fine and gross motor skills, strengthening those hand muscles ready for writing.

Term 5 has plenty of mathematical opportunities where we will be making a chart showing our favourite animals, counting spots on a Dalmatian, recognising numbers on carrots and many more. We can’t wait to get stuck in!

In our nursery class we love getting the paints out so we will be painting some pets for out veterinary back drop. We are going to explore mixing colours to make a new colour as well as using different tools to paint with, not just brushes!

Our Forest School activities will continue and this term we will venture to the school’s very own Forest School area to explore. We will also be monitoring the school pond, spotting any bugs and fish that might be lurking there. As the weather brightens we will be grabbing any chance we get to explore a little further than just our lovely nursery garden.
