Autumn 2

Autumn Term 2

Welcome to Autumn 2

Throughout the following half term children continue to take part in child initiated activities and small adult led group times. 

Nursery children are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of the 'Golden Rules' and our 'Take Care' ethos, which are displayed and promoted across school. 


I am kind.

I look after the environment.

I follow our listening Rules.

I try my best.

 'ALL ABOUT ME BOX' - children continue to be invited, to take home a Nursery 'All About Me Box' within which they put in items from home which they would like to 'show and tell' to the class. 


   'All ABOUT ME SQUARES' - all children have a personalised display board  in nursery.  These are a patchwork of hessian 'squares' arranged across the nursery walls.

Here children have their work and special moments added to their board.
