Nursery Term 1

Harvest Time

This week the children have been learning all about Autumn and Harvest Time. They listened to the story 'Leaf Trouble' and 'The Little Acorn' and talked about the different signs we see around us that tell us Autumn is here.

The children shared their knowledge about the work farmers do, how they plant the seeds, grow the crops and harvest them. We talked about looking after other people and giving food to the Food Bank. We learnt a new song 'Oats and Beans and Barley Grow', Click here  to see the children performing.

Our Learning This Term
Today, Thursday 1st October, was National Poetry Day.The children in Nursery joined in with one of their favourite songs  'Who stole the cookie from the cookie jar?' We learnt how to keep the beat by clapping our hands and tapping our knees alternately to the song as we chanted the words. Mrs Boulton bought some cookies and we placed them in the cookie jar, we chose different children's names to see if they took the cookie and then we shared the cookies out at the end of the song.  
This week we have started our topic
'All About Me'.
The children played a game learning the names of all their friends in Nursery. They investigated some of the things that made them the same and different from each other, they sorted the photographs of each other into groups according to hair colour, and with the help of the adults they got themselves into height order from the tallest to the shortest using words like taller, shorter, tallest, shortest to describe the height of each other.  We drew self portraits and family members after the children talked about the family photographs they had brought into Nursey.
