Autumn Term 2021/ 2022
Welcome to a brand new year at Stowford Nursery! We are so looking forward to seeing our returning children and meeting lots of new faces too.
We have lots of exciting topics coming up this year; we will take to the high seas and depths below in ‘Pirates and Mermaids’ and learn about caring for our world in ‘Animal Planet’. We will also continue to be led by the children’s interests throughout the year and cannot wait to see what adventures those ideas will take us on.
Our first topic of the autumn term is, ‘This Is Me’, creating lots of opportunities for us all to get to know each other. The children will think about what they look like, using their speaking and listening skills to compare our similarities and differences. We will add our new families to our family tree, the children love to look at each other’s photographs and talk to each other about who is in their family, especially the pets! The children will also use their creativity and fine motor skills to create faces from using a range of materials and loose parts. We will explore the wonderful things our bodies can do, how the children have changed since they were babies and how to take care of ourselves. We also look forward to sharing lots of stories including; Our Class is a Family by Shannon Olsen and Monkey Puzzle by Julia Donaldson. We love imaginative play at Stowford Nursery and invite the children to come and visit the Three Bears in our home corner role-play area. Here, the children will use mathematical vocabulary to compare size and create wonderful storylines for their play. Remember to look out for our rhyme of the week, which we would love for you to practise at home.
