Our routine is very flexible and we work around the needs of the children throughout the day. We do encourage the children to use the toilet regularly and nappies are always changed as and when needed, if outside of our scheduled changing times. 

 

The children are offered a morning snack and a drink of milk/water each day, which we provide free of charge. We encourage the children to try different tastes and textures during this time, as well as teaching good language and communication skills at the table.

This is one of our favourite times of the day! 

 

Every afternoon the children will be encouraged to eat a piece of fruit and to have a drink of milk/water to refuel, before they return home!

Take a sneaky peak around our classroom environment!
Our enhancements change each week, alongside our focus book and we love to watch the children develop their own ideas as they play. If we find that one of our activities is very popular, we may keep it for longer with some additional resources to extend the children's learning.

During Autumn 2 our Big Question is:

 

 

'What makes me happy?'

 

Some of our activities this term will be based around several focus books:

 

The Blue Balloon – Mick Inkpen

A Birthday for Bear – Bonny Becker

Kippers Birthday – Mick Inkpen

It’s My Birthday – Helen Oxenbury

Spot’s birthday party Spot makes a cake

Nativity – Bible story

 

Throughout this topic we will be thinking about celebrations including birthdays and Christmas time. We will share our favourite memories and our excitement for celebrations to come! The children will take part in activities involving decorating party hats, creating decorations for our classroom, food tasting, present wrapping, card writing and dancing - to name a few!

 

There may even be an end of term party to look forward to! 

 

 

 

The Way The Truth and The Life...

 

In RE we will be exploring God's wonderful world. We will talk about all of the wonderful things that God has given us and talk about how important it is for us to look after them.

 

 

We will also be talking about our families and how special we all are, each one of us unique. 

 

Waffle our School Dog!

 

Waffle is our school dog! He is a fun-loving Cockerpoo with lots of energy and the children treat him like he's their own. He helps lots of our Nursery children to settle in during the Autumn Term and he is always around to make us smile! 

If you would like to see some of the adventures Waffle has been going on, please visit our 'Waffle' page on the children's section of the website, where you will find a special message along with some very cute pictures!

 

 

 

Story time!

 

 

 

 

We provide lots of opportunities for the children to enjoy stories throughout the day. Our favourite books are displayed for the children to access independently during their busy time and they love to look at the pictures with their friends,

talking about what they can see! 

 

Every afternoon we have a whole class story time to allow the children to unwind, before they return home.

 

 

Nursery Rhymes...

 

Nursery rhymes are a fantastic way of building your child's vocabulary and language skills.

Children love to learn actions to go with their songs so why not try making up your own as you go along! 

In Nursery we are learning to use Makaton signs, particularly  when we sing.

Makaton is a sign language which was created to be used alongside spoken language, in order to promote communication and language development in babies and young children. 

Here are some of the songs and actions that we have been learning.  

 

 BaaBaa Black Sheep 

 

Three Little Monkeys 

 

The wheels on the Bus
