Summer Term

Growth and Transformation

Welcome to Summer term Daubeney Nursery. Our topic this term is ‘Growth and Transformation’.

We are going to be learning about growth this term. We are going to learn about how we grow! We will be learning about the different cycles in nature.  We will be planting different seeds.

Book Bags

Bring Book Bags in: EVERY DAY.

Your children will have their books changed once a week, every FRIDAY. We would love to know if your child has particularly enjoyed something about a story or any feedback, so please write messages in the comments box or just tick when read. Please make time to read with your children every day.

Water Bottle

Children are encouraged to bring their own water bottles into school and please label these with your child’s name.


In Literacy, we will be taking part in daily phonics sessions. We will be reading a variety of books about growing and transforming. We shall be reading many titles such as:

“Titch” by Pat Hutchins

Titch is the youngest and smallest in his family. His brother Pete and his sister Mary have bigger bikes, kites that fly higher, and instruments that make bigger noises. But when Titch plants a tiny seed, they all find that starting off small is just the first stage of growing.

“Jasper's Beanstalk” by Nick Butterworth

Jasper plants a bean. He waits for it to grow into a beanstalk all week. How long will he have to wait before he can start looking for giants? Shop books, stationery, devices and other learning essentials.

“Jack and the Beanstalk” by Ladybird Tales

A re-telling of the classic children’s story

“Jim and the Beanstalk” by Raymond Briggs

A twist on the classic children’s story by the author and illustrator of the best-selling Snowman. Jim finds a beanstalk growing outside his window one morning, and follows his famous predecessor up to the top.

“Measuring Angels” by Lesley Ely and Polly Dunbar

A young girl at school is unhappy because she has fallen out with her friend. Hoping for reconciliation the class teacher gets the two girls to work together on the class sunflower growing competition; there are not enough seeds to go round the entire class and so the two girls reluctantly have to share.


In Numeracy we are continuing to recite numbers to beyond 10. We are continuing to develop skills to count using one to one correspondence. Encourage your child to count things around the house and outside on the way to nursery. We will look at different forms for measurement height and weight. We are going to build our mathematical language to describe quantity size and patterns. We will look closer at 2d shapes, money and estimation.

Cross Curricular

We are going to be learning about different life cycles in nature such as frogs, chicks and caterpillars.

Phase 1 phonics (Nursery and Reception)

This develops listening skills and awareness of sounds within the environment.  Through this vocabulary is developed as the children learn to distinguish and talk about the differences between sounds they hear.  Throughout this stage children encouraged to listen to:

  • Environmental sounds
  • Instrumental sounds
  • Body percussion
  • Rhythm and rhyme
  • Alliteration
  • Voice sounds
  • Oral blending and segmenting

Phase 2 phonics (Nursery and Reception)

In phase two children learn 19 letters of the alphabet and its corresponding sound.  They learn to blend and segment sounds. During this stage the begin to make and read simple words and sentences.
