Autumn 1

This term we will be focusing on separating from our parents, settling into nursery and making new friends. We will be learning how to discover in all the different areas in the nursery.  

 Every week we will be learning a new song. This week we are learning the song 'Dingle, Dangle Scarecrow.'

Here is a link to practise with your child at home.



In reading we will be focussing on listening to and enjoying stories. We will also be focussing on joining in with repetitive parts of the text. We will learn how to listen to a story, discuss what is happening in the story and answer simple questions about the story.  This term we will be looking at the texts 'I went Walking' 'Polar Bear, Polar Bear what do you see?' and 'The Little Red Hen'.


In writing we will be focusing on giving meanings to our marks. We will be exploring using different writing tools and talking about our pictures.





In Maths we will be focusing on counting objects and sorting objects by colours, size and shapes. We will also be exploring 2D shapes and exploring shapes in our environment.


Understanding the World


We will be looking at the changes in the weather during Autumn and how these changes affect the natural world around us. There will be binoculars and magnifying glasses available to help us explore these changes. We will also be learning about Harvest. We will be having a Harvest Celebration on Friday 19th October. We will also be exploring using Bee-bots and cameras.


Personal, Social and Emotional Development

We will be focussing on separating from our parents and making new friends. We will be learning how to share and take turns with our peers.


Physical Development

we will be learning how to hold a pencil correctly and how to use scissors safely. We will also be learning how to climb safely on the large climbing frame.


Expressive Arts and Design

We will be developing our imaginations in our role play areas. This term will have a home corner set up inside and a hospital outside. We will be able to explore and act out experiences that are familiar to us. We will be singing every day, and exploring a range of musical instruments.
