Both Nursery and Reception work closely together as a unit where we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. We are able to access both indoor and outdoor environments and enjoy playing and learning together. We are currently settling into our new classes and routines of the day and making new friends in our setting.
Autumn Term 1
As well as getting to know each other, we are finding out about all our interests and what things we enjoy doing in our mini topic – 'Marvellous Me'.
We will continue through the year to look at broad themes and topics, including the seasons and celebrations, to name but a few. In these topics we will aim to follow the children’s interests and ideas, and this may lead us into other mini-topics so be sure to ask your child, and pop back to our page to see our most current learning.
Autumn Term 2
During October half term we asked the children to be creative and make something linked to our new topic “The Gruffalo”. We had some amazing creations including Gruffalo cakes, a Gruffalo carved pumpkin and character puppets.
Thank you to all the children who participated.
For Halloween and bonfire night the children have been exploring using different materials to create their own masterpieces. We have been investigating what happens when we mix colours and how we can use a variety of different textures and materials to create prints.
