Our topic this term is ‘Events and Celebrations’. We will begin by focussing on children’s own experiences of birthdays. We will learn about other events and celebrations that take place in the autumn, for example, Harvest, Bonfire Night, Remembrance Day, Diwali and Christmas.
We will also learn about seasonal changes that take place during the Autumn term.
We provide lots of opportunities for role play in nursery, with a Home Corner in the classroom and a number of role play boxes, e.g. doctors, hairdressers, vets, shopping. Outside we have a den/construction resources, a mud kitchen and a pirate ship.
Our focus stories this term are;
- Spot Goes to Nursery (Eric Hill)
- The Enormous Turnip
- Monkey and Me (Emily Gravett)
- Dear Zoo (Rod Campbell)
- It was a dark cold night (T Hopgood)
We will use non-fiction books to learn about Harvest, Bonfire Night, Remembrance Day, Diwali and Christmas.
We will sing nursery rhymes and learn songs linked to our theme.
Visit the library to borrow some of the books we will read in Nursery. Can you find any information books about Harvest, Diwali and Christmas?
