Over the Summer Term


We are going to be looking at the story,

"Rainbow Fish"

We are learning all about Summer throughout the month of June, exploring the small world summer resources, exploring the natural environment in the school grounds and reading lots of stories about the weather and holidays

Outdoors we are going to exploring the school grounds for Forest schools and learning different boundaries whilst we are around the school. Outdoors we will be exploring the water using jugs and containers to do lots of pouring and filling; we will be using lots of washing up liquid in our water for children to make bubbles of different sizes. We also will have fun with our new P.E equipment, make lot of marks in a variety of resources such as wet sand, chalk, water, flour and mud

Songs and story time

During June we are going to be looking at a variety of different texts, some of the stories that we are going to be looking at are;

 Rainbow Fish

Grace goes on a plane

Going on a plane

Sneezey weezey Mr Shark

The Sea

Our favourite songs that we like to sing at circle time are;

Wheels on the bus

The sun has got his hat on

Incy wincey spider

The sailor went to sea


General information
As the weather is turning hot could parents please take current weather conditions  into consideration and pack suitable clothing. Could you also ensure that children have at least two spare pairs of clothes and have coats with them. We also would ask that clothing is old and not brand new as children do get messy even with waterproofs and aprons on.


If your child is going to be absent from the setting it would be greatly appreciated that the setting is informed as soon as possible that they aren't going to be in setting and also how long they are expected to be absent.


A gentle reminder that the setting opens 8 am and closes at 5pm, could parents and carers please inform childcare staff if there is a change to people collecting their child/children.
