Welcome to Autumn Term 1
Welcome back after the summer holidays. We are really excited to be welcoming back some of the children from before the holidays, and letting them settle into the Nursery and the routines. We also have some new children starting with us.
We are going to be Exploring all the Nursery areas, and allowing children to investigate what is in each area and find out some of the activities we have planned for those areas.
We want the children to be comfortable and enjoy their learning, gaining new experiences and most of all have lots of fun.
We will also be reading lots of exciting stories like The Naughty Step, Starting School,and Hugless Douglas and many others.
The children will be encouraged to mark make and begin to write their names, count to 5 and above and become more independent in dressing and undressing. It would be great if you could help at home with these things, encouraging your child to put on their own coats, help with buttons and zips, and taking shoes on and off.
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 and drop their leaves. The children will be painting and printing with leaves, making a stained glass window from leaves and reading stories about the changes of seasons.
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.
