All About Me

This half term we have been learning all about ourselves.




We started off our topic by bringing in our family photos and talking about our families.

 


We learnt all about the different parts of our bodies and what we use them for. We looked in the mirror and drew our faces.











Nursery enjoyed finding out about their senses. We smelt different scents, tasted different flavoured crisps and touched different textures.



"The coffee smells horrible."                        "The crisps are yummy."
"Jam smells nice."
We counted our fingers and toes.


We all bought in a picture of ourselves, when we were babies. We talked about how we have changed.






We had lots of fun using a variety of collage materials to make our own paper plate faces.


The children have enjoyed a range of creative activities related to our topic. We used play dough and natural resources to make faces.




We read the story of Goldilocks and The Three Bears and made porridge, turned our home corner into the Bears house, role played the story and developed our mathematical vocabulary related to size.


To end our topic we talked about what we would like to be when we grow up.

We talked about all the different ways that we look after ourselves such as personal hygiene, exercise and healthy eating. Daniella the Dentist came to visit and checked our teeth. We learnt how to brush our teeth correctly and why it is important to look after them.



"Sweets are bad for your teeth."


"Cavities come if you don't brush your teeth."




We finished off our topic by talking about what we would like to be when we grow up.

New Beginnings

We would like to welcome all of our new children to Nursery and we are extremely proud of the way the children are settling into Nursery.

The children are enjoying exploring all areas of the Nursery and are beginning to access resources and activities independently.












 
 




















The children are having lots of fun using the soft play area


 The children are developing a great love for mark making and stories using different forms of media.

                                                                                              

 
 
 

The children have opportunities everyday to develop their fine motor skills in order to prepare their hands for writing activities. 



 





Children are busy in the maths area using numbers and shapes. We are learning how to recite number names in order to 10. We are learning how to use shapes for a purpose. 
 


We go outdoors everyday and access different activities related to our early years curriculum.
 

 

 
 


The children are already forming lovely friendships and working together to help each other achieve.












The children are beginning to join in with daily routines such as milk and fruit time. They are sitting for family group and circle time every day.









Well done Nursery for a super start to the academic year. We are so excited to see how you progress on your learning journey throughout Nursery.
