Autumn 1 Newsletter
Term: Autumn 1
Topic: All About Me
Our topic during this half term will initially focus on ensuring that all children become settled, confident and aware of the routines and expectations within the nursery setting. As we focus more on our topic we will be talking about ourselves and our families and getting to know our peers. We will be learning about the different parts of the body and discussing our features and what makes us different and unique.
Our main story focus will be 'Elmer the Elephant' and we will explore how Elmer was different to his friends. We will be getting messy as we paint self-portraits and pictures of Elmer. We will also learn lots of new songs as we begin our phase 1 phonics sessions. Our role play area has been transformed into a lovely home corner where we can role play all the jobs that our families do around the home, there are also opportunities for us to mark make as we draw pictures and write shopping lists.
