Autumn Term 2021 – Nursery

Children in nursery have had a busy term. Our new children have settled really well and the children re-joining us have enjoyed making lots of new friends.

Our Talk for Writing stories this term are: Dear Zoo by Rod Campbell and the traditional tale of the Little Red Hen.

Children have enjoyed a range of activities focused on these stories. In our learning around Dear Zoo, the children have been making a story map, learning the story with actions, painting animals, sharing information books about animals and they brought toys from home to talk about for our animal show and tell week.

We have also been learning about the season of autumn and the children have enjoyed exploring autumn resources, planting bulbs in our Nature Garden and going on lovely walks in our school field to look for signs of autumn.

In our learning for the Little Red Hen, children have been making a story map, learning the story, exploring flour and water, mark making in flour and making bread rolls. They also shared lovely ideas to re-write the story with a Christmas theme, which they performed, along with other songs and poems, at our Christmas celebration.

Children have enjoyed learning about Diwali and Christmas and have been busy making Christmas cards and chocolate muffins to take home at the end of term.
