For this first half of the Summer Term our topic in Nursery is ‘People who help us’, with a focus on the book ‘The Jolly Postman’ by Janet and Allan Ahlberg.

Communication & Language

We will learn about what to do in an emergency, including who to call and what information to give.


We will write captions to explain what the key roles of emergency service workers. We shall also segment and blend simple words.

Personal, Social & Emotional Development

We will talk about times when we have needed help and who we were able to get help from. We shall also share ideas about our families and how they help us to learn and to be safe.

Understanding the World

We will learn about a range of different jobs and how the people who do them help us. We shall also identify ways in which we can help the world through recycling.

Expressive Arts & Design

We will use various resources to create emergency vehicle collages. In addition, we shall make thank you cards using printing to show our appreciation to those who help us.

Physical Development

We will play ‘Stop and Go’ games when learning about road safety. We shall also use our looking eyes to observe the space around us as we travel.


We will learn about the different British coins, as well as the value of 1p, 2p, 5p and 10p coins. We shall also order events in stories and routines using ordinal numbers, for example, First and Second.
