Current themes & future plans

This term we will be continuing to focus on well being and encouraging the children to understand their feelings and the feelings of others , we have created many areas throughout the nursery which enable children to explore emotions and facial expression and the vocabulary concerned with generating a better understanding of this topic. We will focus on the people we love at Valentines Day and be thankful for those who care for us in our families.

We will also be learning about , “things that go” talking about transport of all varieties, and re-introducing our workshop area with the children , to encourage model making and combining different media and materials to make different types of vehicles. Discussing how the children, get to nursery and vehicles and transport that we see as we are out and about.

Alongside this we will be observing the world around us and the changing seasons , making collections as we are out and about  and in our immediate nursery garden environment. We will spend time making feeders for the birds that come into our garden, to help them through the cold winter.

We will celebrate the Chinese New year on 1st February, which is the Year of the Tiger, and spend time learning about this colourful Festival and learning about the Chinese New year story and traditions.
