EYFS – Mrs Millbank & Miss Spencer
Nursery Topic – Spring Term 2 2020
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 have a special breakfast, carefully spreading toppings on our toast and cutting it. In the classroom, 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.
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?
Reception Topic – Spring Term 2 2020
Are Carrots Orange?
Food marvellous food! What do you like to eat? Are you happy to try something new? It’s time to find out more about eating well and being healthy.
This half term, we’ll collect a rainbow of healthy foods. Use our senses to investigate the foods, and bravely taste things we’ve never tried before! Using our research skills, we’ll read all about fruits and vegetables in
non-fiction books. We’ll plant seeds and look after them carefully. We’ll compare and sort different fruits and vegetables, and create stunning still life paintings. Setting up a class supermarket will be lots of fun; we’ll make signs and sell things to our friends. Following instructions and working together will help us to create healthy snacks. We’ll also find out what happens to our bodies when we exercise.
At the end of the project, we’ll also have a look at the carrots we grew to find out whether all carrots really are orange.

Being healthy can be fun! Why not taste a new fruit or vegetable that you’ve never tried before? You could also plant seeds and learn about what they need to grow. Alternatively, try following a recipe to make a healthy meal or snack.

Changes are afoot in our EYFS unit! We are excited to announce that from September, we will have a separate nursery alongside two smaller Reception classes. We have had so much interest in nursery places this year that we have not been able to accommodate everyone’s wishes for extra hours or morning vs afternoon sessions. This has resulted in disappointment for some families and in other families being unable to attend our nursery as planned. A designated nursery class from September will allow us to offer a mix of full and part time places, up to about 12 full time and 28 part time.
