At Bannockburn, we believe that children in Nursery learn best by 'doing'. Nursery is part of the Early Years Foundation Stage 9EYFS) and is based on four main principles of the Early Years Profile.


This term our key book is ‘Superworm’ by Julia Donaldson.  ‘Superworm’ is captured by Wizard Lizard but all of Superworm’s insect friends have a cunning plan.

Communication & Language

What we will do:

Create our own adventures for Superworm.


What we will do:

Create our own mini beast fact file book. Write a card to thank Superworms’ friends.

Expressive Arts & Design

What we will do:

Create our own Superworm sock puppets to support our role play. Make a superhero cape to transform ourselves into a superhero like Superworm.

Understanding the World

What we will do:

Go on a mini beast hunt in forest school. Will we find any of Superworms friends? Use natural resources to make a magic wand to save Superworm from Wizard Lizard.

Personal, Social & Emotional Development

What we will do:

Discuss how we can be kind and gentle to mini beasts. Work together on ‘Superworm’ Day to complete a range of activities.


What we will do: Count and add the spots on a ladybird. Predict which snail will win the race using an IWB game.

Physical Development

What we will do: Weave a paper plate spider’s web. Move like different mini beasts: wiggle like a worm, buzz like a bee and flap like a butterfly.
