 In the autumn term we encourage the children's independence by entering Nursery and beginning to remove their coats independently. We learn about People Who Help Us and we have a visit from the School Crossing Guard. We look forward to when a Police Officer comes in to see us to talk about how to keep ourselves safe. We also learn about Autumn and the changes it will bring over the next few months.


In the spring term we encourage the children to enjoy listening to stories. Our key texts this term are, ‘Dear Zoo', ‘Harry and the Bucketful of Dinosaurs’, ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ and a range or non-fiction books about insects and transport which we explore using ‘Talk for Writing’ techniques. We engage in imaginative role-play based around dinosaurs and go on scavenger hunts, which allow the children to engage with each other and join in with their own ideas. We also have 'dinosaur eggs' in the Nursery, which we watch grow and escape. We also begin to use a variety of technological equipment this term allowing the children the opportunity to learn and use new skills, whilst sharing and taking turns with others.


This term our key texts are 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt', ‘Shark in the Park’, ‘Shark in the Dark’, a range of pirate stories and a range of farm animal stories, which we will continue to explore using ‘Talk for Writing’ techniques. To help our children engage with the story ‘Shark in the Park’, we will take a trip to the woodlands, taking our telescopes we have made in Nursery, to see if we can find a shark in our 'park'. During our pirate topic we will be left to look after 'Pirate Jack's treasure', but before he can return someone will have taken it. We will then have to complete a treasure hunt following a variety of clues in order to get the treasure back. The children will have the fantastic opportunity to observe and learn how baby ducks are born and how to care for them in their early stages of life. This term we will also focus on preparing for the transition into Reception, continuing to gain independence and setting up the opportunity for children to spend time in the Reception area.
