Autumn 2 Review

This half term our theme is “Fantastic Food.”

The children learned the story of Oh Dear and The Little Red Hen. There was lots of re-telling the story in their own way using props to help them.  We went to the allotments to see the hens and collected eggs. We talked about where eggs come from and then used them in our baking and to make delicious sandwiches. The children really enjoyed going to the allotments. It was a nice walk.

We had a brilliant end to the first week when we invited our families to come to our early Years “50 Things to Do Before your 5” re-launch. We had an “outdoor” theme and enjoyed toasting marshmallows on a campfire.


The children have been very good at telling the adult what they want for snack. The children were able to say please and thank you as we sat down in a circle for snack time.

Children have been able to go into Pastoral group and able to clap their names. They can do this by saying it in a sentence. My name is……….

Autumn 1 Review

We have had a wonderful first half term in Nursery. We are so proud of the children for settling in to their new classes with happiness and resilience.

The children have been learning “Elmer” story books as a theme. The children confidently tell the story out loud using actions and gestures and expressive story telling voices. The children have really enjoyed all the different Elmer books. Children have been trying to write their first initial letter of their name.

We have managed to get out and about in our learning outside the classroom. This has included visits to the school allotment where we picked blackberries to make jam for our toast. We walked to Cliffe Castle to observe the changing seasons from summer to autumn and collect leaves, acorns and conkers for our discovery table.

Autumn 1

It has been lovely welcoming back the children after such a long period of time. We are all incredibly proud of all the children. They have settled into nursery really well and have adapted to the new routines of the class.


This half term the children will be encouraged to talk about themselves, their homes and their families. We will be learning the initial sound of their name and recognise those of their peers. We will talk about numbers important to them, eg their age, their house number and how many people live in their house. We will be making connections between them and the numerals themselves as this is a crucial skill.

We will be reading and enjoying these stories: Elmer’s Friends, Elmer’s Weather, Elmer’s Colours and The Large Family.

Summer 2 Review Growing Full of beans!


What a great half-term we have had!

We are always amazed at how quickly the children settle were with lots of smiles, giggles and eager to play.

We have been learning all about growing. We have been planting lots of beans and sunflowers. We planted them into small plants and once they have grown we took them to our own allotments and we planted them there. The Children had lots of opportunities to explore different art materials to create some beautiful art work which was displayed for our families in the community outside the class room. The Children produced some amazing Hungry Caterpillar work.
