In Numeracy, we have been looking at our numbers including counting, number recognition, estimating, greater than and less than, smallest and greatest. 

We are working hard to count and recognise our numbers all the way up to 20 and beyond.

Parents can help us practise this by counting with us at home, helping us form our numbers, and looking for shapes!

Our Termly Topic

In our topic, this term we will be looking at “Monsters, Pirates, Princesses”.

We will be reading stories all about Monsters - 'Where the Wild Things Are' and 'Not Now Bernard'. We have also been experimenting with slime and measuring different monsters sizes. 

 We have been busy in the creative room!! We have painted and decorated monster eyes, box modelling our own monsters and painting pictures of scary monsters. 

The EYFS Framework


Throughout Nursery and Reception, we deliver the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile. We use this to teach each child, considering their level of development and any additional needs. A copy of this can be viewed here :

Staff are always on hand to discuss your child’s development and give advice or practical support on how to encourage learning at home as well as at school! We are happy to help!

This page will be uploaded on a regular basis will any class information, news and alerts, and pictures and videos showcasing our learning while at St Luke’s!
