Welcome to Nursery

Welcome back to Nursery, we hope you had a restful break! We look forward to another busy half term leading upto Christmas. Please see the school newsletter for key dates.

As always if you celebrate something special at home, please share this with us at Nursery by uploading an observation onto Tapestry. We love to see what the children have been learning at home!


Many thanks,

Mrs Lalor 


Autumn 2

This half term our topic is 'Light and Dark'

In communication and language we will be encouraging the children to develop their listening and attention skills by listening to longer stories and contributing to class discussions. The children will continue to develop their vocabulary through hands on exploration activities and engaging texts. We will also be encouraging the children to develop their understanding of a question or instruction. In phonics we will be encouraging the children to make different sounds using musical instruments and body percussion.   

In personal, social and emotional development we will be encouraging the children to increasingly follow rules at Nursery. We will also be encouraging the children to be more independent when solving conflicts and rivalries with others. Through circle time activities we will learn about different feelings and think about how others may be feeling.

In physical development we will continue to encourage the children to develop their gross motor skills through outdoor play, painting and making marks etc. We will also be encouraging the children to develop their fine motor skills through sensory activities.  

The stories we will be exploring this half term include; Binny's Diwali, How to catch a star, We're going on a bear hunt, Peace at last, Whatever next and stories in relation to celebrating Christmas. A range of books and comics linked to the children's interests will be available for the children to explore too.

We will also be exploring a range of stories in relation to our RE topic My Family.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding your child please speak to a member of the Early Years team.

Many thanks,

Mrs Lalor
