Topic 1 - Ourselves

The children joined our nursery in September 2018 and in order for them to build relationships and to get to know each other better, our first topic was ourselves. The children spoke about their families and made connections between their home lives and those of their peers. We also talked about our likes and dislikes and made beautiful self portraits that we displayed in our classroom.

The children also took part in a discussion about what they want to be when they grow up and thoroughly enjoyed dressing up.

Our Autumn Walk

The children took part in a discussion all about Autumn. They looked at the changes in the weather, the changes in the environment and learnt how various animal adapt to these conditions.

They then went on a Autumn walk where they used baskets to collect a range of autumn leaves, twigs, pine cones and conkers. We then used these natural resources to create art work for our autumn display.

Look at our beautiful art work!

Nursery Planning Overview

Take a look at the wide range of curricular activities the nursery team provide within the setting.

Here are some links to fun websites your children can use at home.

Language Land

Language land is a structured language group that is suitable for children who struggle in communication or have English as an additional language. Language land encourages children to develop their vocabularies, to speak using full sentences and to acquire basic skills that are needed to build their confidence, self-esteem and social skills.
    Language land targets the skills of listening and memory, vocabulary and use of language.
