Autumn Term 2019
Our whole school topic this term is ‘Take One Picture’. The painting chosen is by the artist George Bellows called ‘Men of the Docks’ (1912). In Nursery our focus will be ‘Me and My Family’ and will include journeys we make locally. Towards the end of term we will be making and sending cards to people who are not with their families at Christmas time.
We will also learn about seasonal changes and different cultural celebrations 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.
We will be reading stories linked to our theme.
Our focus books will be:
- Shark in the Park by Nick Sharratt
- Head to Toe by Eric Carle
- The Enormous Turnip
- Monkey Puzzle by Julia Donaldson
- Kipper’s Toy Box by Mick Inkpen
- The Jolly Postman by J & A Ahlberg
- My Name is Not Refugee by Kate Milner
- Dear Santa by Rod Campbell
Visit the library to borrow some of the books we will read in Nursery. Can you find any books about mini-beasts, farm animals and summer?

- Recognising numbers and ways of representing numbers, e.g. using Numicon
