Autumn Term 2018

Here are details of our planned learning experiences in the Early Years Classroom.  

This half term our topic in Nursery is `Why do you love me so much?’  Guess how much I love you…?  What is special about me? How do we show that we care? In this project, we’ll learn about love, families and how people are the same and different.

We’ll pose for photographs and recognise ourselves, our names and our friends from a photograph display. Mirror, mirror on the wall… We’ll look at our reflections and talk about what we can see. In our cosy home corner, we’ll care for dolls and teddies. We’ll enjoy sharing books about love, feelings and families. Outside, we’ll practise following instructions and think about how our brilliant bodies move. We’ll create ‘All about me’ scrapbooks full of lovely writing and photographs. Using our mathematical skills, we’ll measure and compare our hands, feet and heights. We’ll count candles and think about why we celebrate birthdays. Getting creative, we’ll make amazing artwork of people we love.

 These are the Early Learning Goals we will focus on:

You could also visit the local library to share picture books about families and feelings. Alternatively, make a family collage with images of all of your family members’ favourite things.
