European Day of Languages


The Dutch flag - All about the flag of Holland - Holland.com

Nursery had lots of fun on European Day of Languages, we learnt all about the country Holland!  We did lots of fun activities to help us to learn all about Holland! We began our day by learning how to say hello in Dutch which is 'Hallo', the children all had a practice saying this to each other. At snack time, we really enjoyed trying some traditional food from Holland, including Dutch caramel waffles and  Edam cheese. We also had lots of fun listening to and dancing to some traditional music.






Autumn 2


Our topic this half term is 'Pets'.  We will be learning about different pets in the home, what they look like, what they eat, what they feel like and how to look after them. We will learn lots of songs, rhymes and poems about different pets.


We will be reading the stories 'Pete the Cat, I Love My White Shoes' and 'Time For Bed Fred'. We will be painting pets, writing labels for them and making instructions on how to take care of a cat.


 Please see our class Knowledge Organiser for more information about our topic and activities that you can complete at home. 






In Literacy we will be reading two key texts, 'Pete the Cat, I Love My White Shoes' and 'Time For Bed Fred'. We will be talking about the stories, re-telling them using a story map and making up our own version of the stories. While reading we will look at the features of cats and dogs and how they behave. We will also learn new words to describe what the pets looks like, and encourage children to share ideas about the stories









We will be sharing the text in our key groups and then following on our learning through activities in our continuous provision both inside and outside - including making puppets, paintings, number work and story telling.






 We will also be focusing on recognising and beginning to write our names, as well as giving meaning to the marks we make.

We will  be encouraging children to join in with stories and rhymes, as well as speaking to others and talking about the stories we have heard.


In Maths we will be counting objects up to 10, saying numbers in the correct sequence and recognising numbers to 10.







We will also be recognising, naming and sorting 2d shapes and learning about sharing.










Reading Packs

Every child in Nursery has a reading pack.  Inside is a story for you to share together. It is a great opportunity to spend quiet time together at the end of a busy day. When reading, encourage your child to join in with repeated parts of the story and to add actions.  When you have finished, ask lots of questions about the story such as 'who is in the story?', 'where is the story set?' and 'what happened in the story?'. We will change your reading book each week, please bring in your reading pack every day.




In Nursery we take part in daily phonics sessions - these involve learning new songs and rhymes, listening to and making different sounds with our bodies and voices and finding words that rhyme.  We will start looking at letter sounds this half term, learning a new sound each week.







Home learning

This half term children will begin taking home a 'home learning' book.  Each week there will be a song, activity, story or game to play and talk about at home. New home learning will be given out on a Friday, please return by the following Thursday.
