Welcome to Nursery
What’s happening in Autumn term?
This half term, we will be focusing on settling the children into Nursery and familiarising them with our rules and routines.
Our topic this half term is ‘All About Me’. We will be learning all about ourselves and discussing how we are all special and unique. We will be talking about our families and who we live with. We will be looking at different types of homes and the kind of properties we live in. We will also be thinking about our different feelings and emotions.
Children have opportunities to follow their own interests and learn through play in our indoor and outdoor learning areas.
