Welcome to Nursery

Mrs Linder, Mrs Constantine and Miss Ainscough are the staff team in Nursery.

Autumn Term 2021


This half term we will be listening carefully to sounds around us. We will be making different sounds, copying sounds and identifying sounds.

The children will be experimenting with different types of mark making in the different areas in nursery, giving meaning to their marks and beginning to recognise our name.

We will also be starting “Squiggle while you wiggle” and “Dough Disco”, which teaches pre-writing skills through music and movement.

We will be listening to lots of stories, answering questions and predicting what might happen! Naming the different parts of a book.

We will also be learning lots of new songs and rhymes, as well as singing our favourites.



We will be using numbers in our play. We will be matching, sorting, comparing objects according to size and comparing quantities using more and fewer. Talking and looking at simple patterns. We will be learning all about 1, recognising the symbol, counting objects, making marks, using numicon and lots of other experiences and resources including numberblocks.

We will be sharing the rhymes we know, learning lots of new rhymes, filling in the missing words, acting them out, retelling them and choosing our favourites.

We have lots of exciting and creative activities for the children to take part in.

We will be thinking about:

Our bodies, naming parts, how we use them, moving in different ways, riding scooters

Our family and who is in it.

Making new friends to play with. We will be exploring the outdoors and learning about our environment too.

We will be developing our speaking and listening skills, understanding what and where questions.

Talking about our experiences.

Know there are different countries and we live in England

We will also be thinking about how we can follow instructions, choosing activities, sharing and be kind to each other.
