Welcome to Autumn Term 2
This half term our topic is All That Glitters
We are looking at things around us that are shiny and things that are not shiny. Learning new words like sparkly, dull, glittery, dark and light.
We want the children to be comfortable and enjoy their learning, gaining new experiences and most of all having lots of fun.
We will also be reading lots of exciting stories like Laura’s Star, Oscar and the moth and the traditional Christmas Story, along with many other books.
We are practicing holding pencils correct and mark making. also those who are ready are beginning to write their names.
We will be making shiny things like stars, snowflakes and getting ready to make Christmas decorations.
There will also be a Christmas Performance and our children will be learning some new songs ready for their part in the play.
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, we will be looking at the changing seasons and watching the trees change colour.
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, with more independence. 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, and practicing shape recognition.
We also have a new little lending library for Nursery and Reception to use. You can access it through Reception class door every evening after school.
If you read 7 books you will be able to choose a book to take home and keep. Please use the library to spend time reading at home with your child.
