We are looking forward to an exciting and fun-filled year in the Nursery! We will be enjoying open-ended learning in the classroom and open-air learning outside in our lovely play area. There will be a strong focus on language development, creativity and problem solving in order to be prepare the children for a life long journey of learning.
Our daily activities will be based on the children’s interests and having a lot of fun. We will be encouraging the building of friendships and a sense of community. We will be working on becoming confident and independent through talk, games and new experiences.
Whether working inside or out, the children will be expanding their mind and horizons through interacting with an environment that provides resources and experiences to cover the seven areas of Learning and Development:
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development.
- Communication and Language.
- Physical Development.
- Understanding the World.
- Expressive Arts and Design.
We are very creative through all areas of our learning, not just through the arts. The adults support our thinking and help us to make connections by showing genuine interest, offering encouragement, clarifying ideas and asking open questions. We can access resources freely and are allowed to move them around the classroom to extend our learning.
We will be reading and exploring a wide variety of exciting texts – both fiction and non-fiction. These include ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’, ‘The Colour Monster’, ‘Pumpkin Soup’ and ‘Leaf Man.’ We will be involved in activities relating to these books that cover many areas of the curriculum, and will be learning the terms ‘title’, ‘author’, ‘illustrator’ and ‘cover’. We will be looking at both fiction and non-fiction (information) books.
We will be sharing some of our great learning on Tapestry and would love for parents and carers to upload some pictures or videos from home for us to share too.Nursery Home Learning Autumn 1 2023
