Nursery 2 class will swim on a Wednesday during the Summer Term.

Our Current Topic is 'Why can’t I have chocolate for breakfast?'

Food glorious food! We’ll find out why we can’t eat chocolate for every meal, which foods are healthy and more in this project about food, mealtimes and nutrition.


This half term,  we’ll choose foods from a shopping list and start to read words and labels. In our role play sweet shop, we’ll have fun buying and selling sweets. It could get messy when we explore foods with interesting textures! Getting creative, we’ll use a variety of foods for printing and mark making. What’s that smell? We’ll try to work out which foods are inside ‘smell pots’. We’ll enjoy joining in with food-related poems and spot rhyming words. We’d better put our chef’s hats on, as we’ll be making simple snacks and meals. Using our mathematical skills, we’ll weigh different foods and practise ordering numbers.


We’ll investigate what is inside different foods, smelling and handling them. We love chocolate, and we’ll get chance to explore its sensory and scientific properties.


At the end of the project, we’ll shop for some familiar characters and reflect on our favourite foods. We’ll play games that involve using our senses to guess the foods.


Help your child prepare for their project
Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake, baker’s man! Why not read and learn nursery rhymes about food? You could also use recycled materials to make meals on a paper plate. Will you make string spaghetti or green tissue paper peas? Alternatively, try following simple instructions to make a healthy snack. What fruits and vegetables will you use?


This project runs for the first half of the summer term. Below are a list of ideas for our project, try one of these or something else project related.


  • What is your favourite sweet? Do you all like the same sweets?  

  • Have a teddy bear’s picnic 

  • Make some sandwiches together, what is your favourite filling? Maybe try something new? 

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum which uses continuous play and exploration to learn. Adults plan both adult led and child initiated activities that enable the children to develop social skills, self confidence and independence in a range of contexts. 


At Ash Grange we encourage our children to get messy and have fun outside in all weathers therefore we ask that your child is dressed in appropriate clothing suitable for the various activities and all weathers.


Please remember in case of accidents and wet play all children need

  • a spare set of clothes and pants which remain at school
  • Wellies
  • No laces on shoes, velcro fastenings are ideal for this age
  • On swimming days we are ask Nursery 2 to wear easy to dress clothes such as jogging bottoms and top.

Tapestry is a communication app for Early Years Families, to share targets, progress and achievements in their Learning Journey. Parents can use this to share achievements at home. Families are provided with a unique login. 

Please contact the school office if you need support.
