Down at the Farm
This half term we will be looking at farm animals. We will be looking at all the different animals that live on the farm. We will be talking about what the animals eat. What do we get from the animals e.g. cow we get milk from the cows. What noises do they make?
We will be using the following books to create an exciting few weeks.
Here is a link where you can learn about different animals.
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.

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.
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...
It is lovely to welcome our new children into Nursery and to see our older children happy and settled after the half term break.
This half term, we will be learning and experiencing lots of exciting new things through our theme, “Fantastic Food.”
We will be reading lots of traditional stories, including, ‘The Gingerbread Man,’ ‘Goldilocks and The 3 Bears’ and ‘The Little Red Hen.’
We will be finding out about different celebrations and festivals including birthdays, Christmas, Diwali, Bonfire Night and celebrations that are special to our own families. We hope to make, bake and taste lots of different foods and find out about the ingredients and our likes and dislikes. Speech and Language development will be a big focus for us this half term and we look forward to sharing some more #50 Things activities which you can do at home to support your child.
We have had such a good start to the school year in both our reception classes. The children have settled happily and confidently into new routines and have enjoyed getting to know the staff and each other.
The Elmer theme has been really exciting to do. They have loved all the different books of Elmer. We did a different book called Pete the Cat- I love my white shoes. The children have really been engaged with this story. They have explored their new school environment, making the most of our outside space as well as the indoor provision. There have been lots of fabulous paintings going on. The children have been using numbers in all sorts of challenges, including counting how many steps can you do. How any colours can you see on the Elmer.
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 bubbles.
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.
