Autumn Term 2
This term our theme is "Our World and Me."
We will be learning about ourselves and the world we live in, looking closely at our similarities and difference, likes and dislikes. We will also be looking at where we live and our local community.
As a class we will be sharing many texts but our focus text this term is
"Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Dairy"
In literacy we follow the "Letters and Sounds" program and this term we will be learning about Body percussion, Rhythm and Rhyme and Alliteration.
In mathematics we follow "White Rose Maths" scheme of learning.
A day in Nursery
Children arrive and are encouraged to independently write their name. Some children overwrite, some copy and some are able to write their name independently. These name writings get hung above our writing table for all to see.
Once all children have arrived we move into the listening room to welcome everyone, complete our exercises and get ready for phonics. Our welcome session includes singing our "good morning/afternoon song, singing the "days of the week" song, counting how many children are in Nursery and talking about the weather. This is also when our special helper for the day is picked. When a child is picked for special helper, their jobs are to state what the weather is like by looking out the window, count the children one by one and sit on the special helper chair.
After we have completed our welcome session and exercise, the children are ready for their phonics session. We follow the "letters and sounds" program.
After phonics the children all wash their hands and line up ready for snack. Children are encouraged to be independent at snack time. They butter their own bagel or choose their own cereal and pour their own milk or water. Children also enjoy a variety of fruits.
One all children have finished snack, its free play time. Some days we open with Foundation, allowing all children from the two classes to play together in all areas of the Nursery and Foundation, inside and out.
To symbolise the end of free play we play the theme tune from Mission Impossible and the children love to try and beat the music when tidying.
Once the music has finished and all is tidy, the children are back into the listening room ready for a teaching session which is either mathematics, PSED or topic.
After the teaching session all children wash their hands and get ready for lunch or going home.
