Autumn Term 1 - September 2021

Welcome to all our new and returning children. We are looking forward to an active and busy year with lots of fun activities to support your Early Years journey.

Talk 4 Writing - Owl Babies by Martin Waddell

For the first half term of our academic year we will be reading and learning the wonderful story 'Owl Babies'. We hope to learn more about owls and how they live through indoor and outdoor activities.

We hope to learn more about other night animals too!

Topic - Skills and Tools / Autumn

While the children are settling into their new routine we will be encouraging the children to learn new skills and helping them to use the new tools that they will have access to while at nursery. Through the use of scissors, paints, pencils, chalk, collage, clay and junk modelling (plus many others) we hope the children will start to become confident and creative. Using these materials should also help to develop their fine motor skills in readiness for early writing/mark making. 

Skills and Tools(1)


For maths we will be concentrating on counting 1 to 5+ and looking at colour. The children will have activities to support their growing understanding of these areas and hopefully have some fun while doing so. The first half term will also be used for staff to complete base line assessments in order to assist the children in their next steps.

RE - Creation and God loves us

"The Creation Story" and "How God Loves Us" will form our Religious Education, and the children will engage in group time, prayer and quiet time, to reflect on these topics, during this half term. They will aslo engage in saying or singing their daily prayers.

Our first 2 weeks!

The children (new and returners) are settling in beautifully. We have been learning all about our new routine and all the children have been enjoying singing and saying their prayers and joining in with story time. We have also been exploring outside in the Nursery play area and using the climbing frame on the field. One of our highlights has been picking apples off the trees on the school field!

Week beginning Monday 20th September 2021 - Week 3

What a busy week! The weather has been wonderful and the children have spent a lot of time outside enjoying the sunshine. The children have listened to and talked about 'Owl Babies' in group time, they have enjoyed singing and dancing our Creation song for RE and thanked God for all he has made for us. For PE we became squirrels, scampering and collecting our nuts for the winter (tennis balls in the hall) and the children had fun spraying different coloured paints onto paper and the ground in our nursery playground. We had many sleepy faces by the end of the week and look forward to more exploring next week.
