Autumn Term 1

Our Topic is

‘All about me”

We focus on one book a week. Here are some books we have read in Nursery this term. We know these stories really well and can retell the stories by looking at the pictures. 

 

We have been learning about the differences and similarities we have with our friends in Nursery

 

We really enjoyed learning about London and can identify some London landmarks. We spoke about living in London and then took turns to tell the class who we live with.                                                                                  

 

We read the book ‘Simon Sock’ and then used our sorting skills to find all the matching pairs of socks.

We developed our cutting skills by rescuing the dinosaurs. It was so much fun and we kept trying until the dinosaurs were saved.

 

This week in Math’s we developed our counting skills by singing ‘5 Little Ducks’. It was so much fun. We were able to match the number to the amount of ducks and take away 1 duck each time. We really enjoyed changing the amount of ducks. We could count up to 10 and match the numeral with the quantity.

 

We love our home role play area. We use natural loose parts in the kitchen. This develops our creative skills and we have become really inventive with our ideas. 

Before we can start writing we need to strengthen the muscles in our hands. Here are some fine and gross motor activities we have done to develop our hand muscles.

 

We love making marks with different tools. We might not be ready to write but we love drawing and mark making. We are working on developing our communication skills so we can speak about our drawing in detail. We will be ready to write once we have hold a pen correctly with a firm grip.

 

 

Everyday we self register by finding our name stone and placing

it in the basket.

We develop our understanding our nature by exploring in our digging area. We really enjoy looking for mini beasts and love cooking in our mud kitchen.

 

We develop our physical skills by taking part in a variety of climbing and building activities. Have a look at some of our large and small models. 

 

We made self-portraits

What do you think?

We had so much fun painting with cars

We practiced our counting by counting jumps
