Welcome to Autumn Term 1
We hope you had a lovely summer break. We are looking forward to seeing our returning children and meeting new faces ready for our new academic year!
Our learning journey this half term is ‘All about me.’
Our ‘All about me’ topic will give us the chance learn more about the children and settle them into the nursery. We will do this through stories, rhymes and songs.
We will be talking about the children’s body parts, feelings and their likes and dislikes. They will have the opportunity to take part in home corner role play acting out activities from home.
We will be focussing on the children’s personal and social development, helping them settle into the Nursery and make friends with their new classmates. We will also be concentrating on developing the children’s communication skills through storytelling, role play and interactions with adults and the other children.

If you have any questions about how your child is settling into their class please speak to their class teacher or TAs.
The Nursery Team
Forest school ethos in nursery
All Nursery classes are now able to use the wonderful Ayse’s garden (in the main Woodpecker Hall playground playground) on a weekly basis to have their additional outdoor sessions which will offer the children an insight into the 'Forest School' ethos. Children will have access to natural resources and learning opportunities in the fresh air.
they explore trees and plants, leaves, sticks, insects, mud and activity
games, they become more comfortable in a natural setting where they
learn a range of new practical skills, becoming more independent, using
their imagination, and initiating learning for themselves.
Forest School initiative is an invaluable opportunity for children to learn and play outside in the fresh air.
If your child has a pair of wellies and a hooded jacket, please send them to school on Wednesdays for Rosen classes and on Thursdays for Carle class. If you don't have wellies, don't worry, just let us know.
