In term one our topic is ‘Marvellous Me’. We spend lots of time getting to know each other and learning to play and share with our friends. We also learn to look after resources and learn our classroom routines. Throughout our topic we will learn lots about ourselves. We will talk about our families, our bodies and our homes.
It’s time to explore the school including the secret garden, our allotment, the playground and the huge field. Together we will go on Autumn walks so bring your wellies. We discover the dark den and find different ways to light it up. Throughout this topic, we discover the magic and wonder of the start of winter and all the festivals and celebrations too. We will perform our own Nativity and take part in lots of Christmas activity.
This term we will be reading ‘The Gingerbread Man’ as well as lots of other traditional tales. During this topic we will take full advantage of the school kitchen where we will make some delicious ginger bread men – we hope they don’t run away! This topic is the perfect opportunity to become familiar with the repetition and rhyme of lots of our favourite stories.
We’re going on a bear hunt! We’re going to catch a big one! What will we discover? We will read lots of our favourite stories involving different bears as well as having a teddy bear’s picnic in the secret garden and an exciting bear hunt outside! This topic allows us to explore some non-fiction texts and learn some brilliant big bear facts.
Off We Go!
We visit some wonderful places during our topic. We learn about different transport and journey around the world as well as explore the city we live in. We will enjoy designing and building our own transport as well as looking at maps and globes. Throughout the topic we will taste some delicious food from around the world and vote on our favourite.
Down in the Jungle
Grab your magnifying glass, put on your exploring hat and get into your jeep as we head off to explore the animals found in a jungle. During this topic we will get creative and explore colour, texture and pattern, creating some fabulous art to decorate the classroom. We will also learn lots of jungle songs. Nursery and Reception will work closely together as we get ready to move into our new classes.
