‘How can I make a new friend?’ is our theme this half term, when we learn about starting Nursery.
We begin by learning our class rules; we listen, we walk, we tidy up we share, we are kind and our school bee rules; be respectful, be responsible, be honest, be polite, be kind. We read the book, ‘Little Tiger Goes to School’ to support our learning and each week two children who have been following these rules get to be Star of the Week and take one of the class mascots home for the weekend!
Together we talk about our families; who is in our family and what we like to do with them. We also create self-portraits taking inspiration from famous artists such as Frida Kahlo and Pablo Picasso.
We learn about Autumn and explore the season by going on an Autumn walk. We discuss what changes we can see and what colours are in nature. We continue to explore colour using a range of media and learn the BSL signs as well.
In our maths learning we are listening to lots of maths songs and beginning to use number names in our play. We are also beginning to understand prepositional language when listening to the adults and our friends.
In our literacy learning we are beginning to make marks in different media and in phonics we are beginning to discriminate between sounds, such as following instructions.
