Autumn Term

This term we will be welcoming the children into Nursery and helping them to feel secure and safe. The children will have plenty of opportunities to explore the learning areas, both indoors and outdoors. Our topics for the first half term are ‘Rhyme Time’ and ‘Marvellous Me’. The children to be learning and singing a range of rhymes which will help to develop their communication and language skills. We will be asking the children about their families and getting to know them better. During the second half term, our topic is ‘Fantastic Fairytales. We will be reading a range of traditional stories, retelling them and acting them out to develop language and social skills.

This term, we will be going to the school hall every Monday morning. We will be playing a range of games (parachute games, circle games) to encourage good listening skills. The children will have the opportunity to move around a large space and will use musical instruments to perform songs and dances.

We love to learn outdoors and we will go out and use the nature area and quadrangle in all weathers! Please can you provide a pair of wellies for your child to wear when necessary, it is also important that your child has warm, waterproof clothing e.g. water proof coat, gloves and hats for cold and wet occasions.
