Autumn 2 Term learning -2018
This half term started with our focus on Remembrance and the 100 year anniversary of the end of the 1st World War. Nursery children drew poppies and took part in a service of Remembrance with their Year 3 buddies.
As the half term continued, the Nursery children became noticeably more settled in the classroom environment. They have enjoyed investigating all areas inside and outside.
Many children can now pedal the bikes, climb on the tyres and wall bars and role play in our outside building area.
They have also taken a great interest in counting, reading and writing numbers throughout the half term.
Autumn 1 Term learning -2018
In Nursery, we spent the first few weeks of the half term getting to know each other, getting to know all the areas in the classroom and outside area and also learning all the rules and expectations.
When we understood all the boundaries and were ready to investigate and explore our surroundings further we looked at the signs of autumn around us. We used pumpkins, leaves and conkers for art work, counting and close observation. We really enjoyed cutting up the pumpkins and counting the leaves.
Two of our favourite things are play dough and our amazing mud kitchen. Everyone wants to help Mrs Clancy make play dough on a Monday morning or cook dinner for Mrs Tucker. Did you know she really loves mud pies!
