Nursery EYFS – Rubies and Crystals

Welcome to Nursery!


Autumn Term 1


We have had a very busy start to our year and we've had lots of fun in nursery already. Our topic was, 'All About Me'. We played lots of, 'Get to know you,' games where we learnt things about each other. We learnt that we have lots of similarities such our favourite foods and our favourite colours. We also have things that set us apart such as our birthdays and the things we like to do. We are all individual and have different strengths. We can do lots of amazing things like jumping really high, counting past ten, writing our names, making up stories and lots more. We looked closely at the different buildings we live in and then looked at the story of, 'The Three Little Pigs'. We loved acting it out and learning the repeated phrases. There was lots of, 'Huffing,' and, 'Puffing!'


We learnt all about Autumn and what happens to our surroundings. We noticed how the leaves were turning colour and falling from the trees. We had great fun going to the woodland walk to hunt for leaves of different sizes and colour. We took our findings back to class and used them to make beautiful Autumnal pictures. We also learnt about Harvest festival and what it means. We had great fun exploring different foods and especially enjoyed stamping with root vegetables and making patterns with tractor wheels.


Just before half term we learnt about Halloween and how it is observed. We enjoyed coming to nursery dressed up as different characters as well as carving pumpkins and making spooky playdoh spiders! We also learnt all about Diwali. We made wonderful Rangoli patterns with the see through 2D shapes and enjoyed learning the story of Rama and Sita. We listened to traditional Diwali music and had a go at learning some dance moves. 


We have really enjoyed getting to know each other and making new friendships. We are already loving our time at nursery and can't wait to see what happens next term...
