Welcome Amber class to the autumn term and a warm welcome to all our new children.

In Amber Class we work closely with parents/carers to set the foundations of children’s first steps in their learning.

This term we have lots of fun and engaging activities planned to help the new children settle and become familiar with their new routines and environment.

Please check our nursery news page and Home Learning page for the timetables and some great learning activities for you to enhance your child’s learning journey at home.

The topic for the autumn term is ‘Magical Me’.  Many aspects will be introduced through a range of stories songs and rhymes. We will talk about what makes us special, key people, our community and family. We will develop a timeline from birth to toddler that can be added to as the children grow and develop. The children will be encouraged to note growth and changes.

Our topic this half term offers a huge range of exciting art and craft activities using a variety of materials and media. We hope the children will enjoy this topic.

Each week one child will take the ‘family box’ home where they can put photos and special objects in to talk about themselves, show and display.

We will be continuing to be learning lots of songs and rhymes and listening to short stories, music, and playing instruments, whilst developing play skills and language using a variety of props.

We will be busy developing our physical skills and independence whilst playing with gloop, paint, pulses and playdough and moving around the classrooms both inside and outside.

Children are also encouraged to take books home weekly for carers to read to them to begin to instill their love for reading and sense of exploration.

Exciting times for everybody!
