Autumn 2022: All About Me

A lovely warm welcome to our new children in Sunflowers Class. All the children have settled in really well and making lots of new friendships.


This term we will be focusing on; learning the routines of the nursery and getting used to a new classroom, separating from our parents with confidence to come in and enjoy our days at nursery, and finally, learning to take turns with our friends and sharing our lovely toys and resources in nursery.


Supporting your children in these will help with their transition into Sunflowers class and out down the foundations for a wonderful year ahead.




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 :)

Autumn 2

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. The children created some lovely art work and candle holders to link in with all these. We will soon be beginning to look towards our Christmas performance and bring in lots of Christmas themed ideas into the children's learning. 


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.  

Some of our learning this term...

If you are still not on Tapestry, please ask for a form and fill it in!


We love to see and hear about what you get up to at home and the children love to talk about the pictures you share with their friends. We show them on our big screen! 

Other fun things to try at home!


In class, we have been talking about how to keep our bodies and minds healthy. As part of this, we have tried some yoga! Here is a YouTube video we have used to guide us:


Yoga for everyone!


Perhaps you could try it as a family? It is important that the children see us caring for our bodies and minds.





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!
