Autumn 1

This half term we will spend lots of time settling in, playing, getting to know all of our new children and introducing them to our class routines.  We will have lots of fun reading, singing and taking part in new activities that will be linked to Nursery Rhymes.  

Nursery Rhymes and Owls

                                                

   

 

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

 

 

 

   

 

 

  

 

 

Literacy

In Literacy we will start our learning based around nursery rhymes, finding out which ones children already know, and encouraging them to join in with new songs, rhymes and actions.  We will encourage children to use new words to increase their vocabulary, ask them questions about the characters and begin to develop our listening skills.

 

 

 

 

Later in the half term we will be reading the story 'Wow! Said The Owl'. We will talk about the story, re-tell the story in our own words and draw pictures our favourite characters. While reading, we will look at the features of an owl, learn about different colours and find out which animals are awake at night time. We will also learn new words to describe what the owl looks like, and encourage children to share ideas about the story.                         

                                                                                                                                                                           

                                                                                                                                                                                                               

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.

  

 We will also be focusing on recognising our names, making marks on paper to represent our names and giving meaning to the marks in our drawings. .

We will  be encouraging children to join in with stories, songs and rhymes, as well as speaking to others and re-telling the familiar stories to our friends using pictures and story maps.

 

 

 

 

  

Maths

In Maths we will be counting, saying one number for each item in order: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.  We will also be linking numbers to amounts, with numbers up to 5.  We will do lots of this learning through games and number rhymes!

 

  

 

                                                   

 

We will also be comparing objects - thinking about size, length, weight and capacity. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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, talk about what they can see in the pictures and 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.

 

  

 

 

Phonics

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.  

 

 

 

  

 

Home learning

Children will bring 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.
