This half term
Welcome to Autumn Term 2
We have had a lovely start to the new school year with all the children settled into a good routine and enjoying Nursery.
The children have been exploring the Nursery areas, getting too know how to use the equipment, and becoming familiar with the different Nursery areas.
The children and staff have all made good relationships and are now ready to learn about the topic of Light and Dark and also talk about shiny and dull things. We will be making shadow puppets, pictures from shiny materials, sorting out shiny and dull objects, and most important discussing night, day, the sun and moon and sources of light. It would be great if you could talk about this to your children and help them at home.
In December will be learning our Christmas songs and practising for our Christmas play. making Christmas cards and decorations.
We will be introducing the children to books such as Laura’s Star, Laura’s Christmas Star, Iris and Isaac, Lost and Found and Coming home, as well as some old favourites.
Outdoor Areas of Provision
We use out outdoor areas in all weathers so please ensure your child is dressed appropriately. The children will be looking at the changes happening due to the weather, leaves falling from the trees, leaves changing colour, the weather getting colder.
The children will been using the bikes and scooters to continue their gross motor development and climbing and balancing on the Nursery equipment, writing with chalks outside and drawing on the large boards.
The areas of provision change each half term to support the learning taking place. We follow the children’s interests to make sure they are engaged in the activities and encourage the children to use them independently, supporting when needed learning opportunities.
The older children will be beginning to focus on pencil control and writing their names. We count every day and are counting up to 10 and beyond, recognizing numbers up to 5 and above and also shape recognition. This can also be reinforced at home by counting with your child regularly and helping them to hold a pencil with the correct grip and encouraging them to form the letters in their names correctly.
