Next week in our Food Unit we have a special focus on Bread making, types of bread as well as where bread ingredients come from. It's all about BREAD!

The children will have a big focus on Resilience, one of our IPC Personal Qualities. In nursery Resilience means always trying our best and not giving up when the task is difficult.


This week we will explore the story of The Little Red Hen you can watch it online if you don’t have it at home. It is a story about a busy little hen who wants to find all the ingredients to make bread at the farm.

In class we will enquire about different types of Russian breads, each of the ingredients used and how the grains are made into flour.  

Two of our class Mummies are going to teach us how to make pizza as well as banana bread.


These are four main learning strands that we are focusing on this week;

Independence and Interdependence

1.25 taking on different roles in different contexts


2.13 exploring and observing the use of numbers in purposeful activities


 3.3 trying things out, exploring and curiosity as important and valued ways of learning

Healthy Living

4.9 Keeping themselves safe from harm

As part of our focus on bread making we will be learning a new song called 5 current buns in a bakers shop this links to money handling as well as counting 1-5. See if you can practice together at home. You could use a real coin & buns while you act out the song together.
