Autumn term 2.
At the end of last half term we said goodbye to Mrs Young, wishing her well with her new post. We welcomed Mrs Fox into the St Hild’s family at the start of the second part of Autumn Term along with some new children.


To help us with developing our PSE skills we are continuing to learn our rules to make nursery a happy and safe place to be alongside learning some British values and our school values. The children have been taking part in lots of different activities encouraging them to take turns and be patience whilst waiting your turn. 

To help us extend our vocabulary we describe an object each week linked to our topics.

We explore our gross and fine motor skills through all our areas of learning.

To help us with our mathematical skills we have been doing lots of noticing. We are continuing our learning to recognise groups of up to 3 objects and learning to understand how we know there are 2 and 3. We continue to regularly sing number songs to help with our counting.

We continue to enjoy a wide range of stories and rhymes daily, we also enjoy some phonic related activities. 

There have been lots of events this half term, including; Children in Need, Anti-Bullying day, Road Safety, Remembrance Day & Guy Fawkes. We have enjoyed the story Joseph and his Coat of many Colours, The Creation & Jesus and his Baptism, then looked at our experiences of Baptism. We are starting to learn about The First Christmas. All of these help us to extend our knowledge in understanding our world.

Through expressive arts & design we have been creative with our art skills, exploring musical instruments and dancing.

Autumn Term 1.
To help us settle into nursery life we do lots of activities to develop our PSE skills.

To extend our listening and vocabulary skills we do lots of noticing about objects related to our topics.

We do a range of physical activities throughout all our areas of learning.

This term we are doing lots of noticing!  We are developing our foundation of maths skills. Is there 1, 2 or 3, how do you know that? We are looking at objects and talking about their properties. Is it heavy or light? Does it have angles or sides? Curved lines or faces? Is it big or small? 

To help develop our Literacy skills, we sing lots of rhymes and enjoy stories in different ways. We do phonic activities using musical instruments.

The children have been extending their knowledge of the world through Harvest, baking, International Dot Day, exploring Autumn and looking at their history, we talked about what they could do when they were a baby and what they could do now. 

The children have been getting creative using a variety of art skills and exploring musical instruments.
