Each half term Nursery and Reception children are immersed into different topics. These topics are all based around stories and help children develop a love of books as well as developing their vocabulary, imagination and engagement in their learning. The teaching and learning experiences being delivered reflect the half termly topics, as does the learning environment both inside and outside the classroom.
This half term both Nursery and Reception will be learning about the topic 'All about me'.
The children will be given the opportunity to talk about their family and the people who are important to them.They will also learn about different families. Children will be able to say what makes them unique and will begin to identify similarities and differences between themselves and others.
All children within Nursery and Reception will have the opportunity to explore the indoor and outdoor environments and engage in a range of exciting learning opportunities to develop their skills in reading, writing, math, art, construction and problem solving just to name a few.
This half term children will begin to develop their independence by taking off and hanging up their own coats when coming into school, selecting their own resources during challenge time, helping themselves to snack and beginning to dress and undress for P.E (for those in Reception).
All children will learn about people inside and outside of school who help us and will begin to learn about different occupations. Children will be given the opportunity to take on some of these roles through role play.
Nursery and Reception classrooms currently have a 'home corner' role play area for the children to explore so that they can begin to role-play based on their own first-hand experiences.
