The Woodland Suite - Termly Overview
Autumn Term 2020-2021
The Woodland Suite team are delighted to welcome back our returning families and extend a warm welcome to our new families! It has been wonderful to have the children back in nursery after such a long time at home!
They have settled in brilliantly to nursery life and have adapted well to the new routines for coming in, going home and washing hands throughout the sessions. Well done to all our parents too who have adapted to these new ways and for doing 'Garden Visits' as the settling in sessions this year. The children have been excited to explore all our learning areas, inside and out. This half term our learning theme is "All About Me" where we will be focussing on ourselves and our likes and dislikes, building friendships, learning routines and of course starting nursery - it can be a tricky transition for some children, especially after the year we have all had. We have also moved into Autumn now so will be looking closely at the changes that this brings to the world around us. The core stories that we will be using to support all of this include Goat Goes to Playgroup, Owl Babies, My World Your World, Leaf Man, It's Not a Stick and The Gruffalo.
The children are now getting used to their animal key groups and we will be beginning colour group teaching after the October half term. The learning theme for the second half of the Autumn Term will be 'Transport' and the core stories include Travelling By, Naughty Bus, Handa's Surprise, Whatever Next and Dear Santa.
