Autumn 2 - Celebrations
This term our F1 children are learning to:
take turns in play
build some key friendships
listen and respond appropriately during carpet sessions
This term we are looking at all kinds of celebrations in the lead up to Christmas. The first few weeks we have focused on celebrations that have been happening around that time, Diwali, Halloween and Bonfire Night and fireworks.
This term we are continuing to focus on communication and language to support the children's interactions with one another. We are always introducing new vocabulary to the children, that relates to our topic. The children are settled into the class well now so our personal, social and emotional development focus is to support the children in building friendships and learning one another's names.
We use tapestry in school to record your child's learning journey. If you haven't already please ask at school for a form to complete.
Please share all the wonderful things you do at home with us via Tapestry, we love hearing about what the children do at home and this is so important. We would particularly like to hear about what your child enjoys doing at nursery, if they talk about their friends and any other information that you think might be helpful :)
This term we looked at vehicles and all the different ones we see everyday and some with special jobs. The children explored vehicles that went on land, sea and in the air. We did artwork using different tyre tracks on the cars and trucks. Through exploring vehicles that travel in different ways the children were able to talk about which would be the best way to travel to specific places. At the end of the term we had a lovely bus trip out around Leicester with Daisy class. We saw lots of important places around Leicester and some places the children had not seen before.
This term our topic was Ready, Steady, Grow. We were very lucky to be able to get caterpillars to have in our class, we have been watching them grow and see them turn into a chrysalis and eventually a butterfly which we will set free in the playground. The children about about the life cycle of a butterfly through the story The Very Hungry Caterpillar. We then moved onto plant life cycles and learnt about these through the story Jack and the Beanstalk. The children planted some cress and watched it grow and also their own beans in plastic bags to be able to see all the different parts of the plant as they grow.
This term the children will be learning about People Who Help Us. This topic will look at all the people who help us everyday and people with jobs such as paramedics and police officers. We will be having visits from people with different jobs so they can tell about what they do in their job. We will be looking at how we can help each other everyday with the small things as well as big tasks. The children will also be encouraged to think about all those people who help us, including family, sports coaches and teachers.
Joining the Library
We believe that stories and reading is one of the most important things to share and we wouldn't want anyone to miss out. Joining the library and borrowing books is completely free. Our closest library is on Narborough Road (although there are lots of libraries all over the city). There are no forms to fill in, just drop in with some proof of ID. Why not pop in after nursery? You can join for free and start borrowing today!

Learning to use the toilet is really important and something we work hard on in Daisy class. Children are reminded to use the toilet regularly and we know that accidents will still happen (there is just so much to do and play with!). We also work closely with each individual family to ensure we can support them at whatever stage of the journey they are at. This website has lots of useful tips and advice:
Please come and talk to one of us, if you have concerns or require support with this.
