Our topic this half term is ‘Why Do You Love Me So Much? ’
This half term we are learning about our families and ourselves. We will be looking at who is in our family and what they do to look after us. We will be learning about our bodies and ways in which we can stay healthy. We will be making healthy pizzas to try and learn about safety when cooking. At the end of this half term we will be celebrating Diwali and will have a walk to the local shops to buy sweets for our Diwali party.

We are learning new sounds, numbers and some new rhymes. Our investigation area homes our classroom snail which the children look after and watch grow as they grow. We begin the day by registering in family groups which develops speaking and listening, knowledge and understanding and turn taking. Days of the week, the weather and theme based learning is done during this circle time.
The children are developing their pre-writing skills by doing ‘dough disco’ every day. Literacy and Maths are covered daily in our family groups. Children also have lots of opportunities to learn through carefully planned child initiated indoor and outdoor activities which are facilitated by the teaching staff.
At home you can help your child by:
Encouraging your child to speak in full sentences.
Practicing their numbers,basic shapes, colours and letter sounds.
Encouraging your child to be independent (toileting, hand washing, coats and shoes).
It is amazing to see how quickly children have settled into the nursery setting and are already become confident, independent little learners.
