Welcome to Autumn Term Sep-Dec 2021

Curriculum Updates

During this term we will be learning about Autumn focusing on the changes in the weather and in our surrounding especially changing colours of leaves and the trees. We will be going to the nearby parks and surroundings to see the different coloured leaves and learn lots of songs and poems about autumn.

Nightingales children will be exploring their five senses and learning the importance of our senses during the month of September. The children will be enjoying creative activities and listening walks around the nursery and tasting and smelling different flavoured food and fragrance.

During the month of September, the Woodpeckers children will be exploring the story of 'Three little pigs'. Our focus will be constructions and purposeful building. This will encourage the children to use their imagination to use loose parts to create objects, especially to build the piggy's houses. We will be extending our building skills in the garden and create our own dens to recreate the story lines. The Little Robins children will learn more about farm animals the noises they make and learn songs about farm animals and will enjoy art and craft activities.

We will devote the month of October to celebrate the Black history month. We will learn the African and Caribbean culture through stories, songs dance and enjoy their delicious cuisine.
