Autumn Term

This term in nursery, we will be welcoming our new members to Sebright and showing them how to play, learn, make friends and be happy! We will be showing them where our resources are kept, what we do if we need some help and how to learn our letters and sounds! You can help at home by trying the following games:

Talking about your day

It can be a very exciting and very daunting time coming to nursery – for children and parents! Ask your child what they did in the day; find out the names of children they have played with and what games they like to play.

Number hunt!

When you are walking to and from school, which numbers can you see? You will be surprised how many you can find. From numbers on street doors, the front of buses and even on road signs!

Writing your name.

We all know all the greatest artists in the world sign their masterpieces. Every time you draw a picture remember to sign it so everyone knows who wrote it! We will be learning all about traditional tales such as Goldilocks and the Three Bears and Jack and the Beanstalk so we can tell the stories to everyone in our families.

Our class project

We will be making our own movie all about us! Once the film has been made we will show it to all the parents and maybe even eat some popcorn.

Curriculum Enrichment Experiences

At Sebright nursery we like to explore the world around us. We will be going to trips to the farm, train station, park and other interesting places in our local environment. We will also be having theatre groups and workshops coming in to teach us about story telling and stimulate our imagination! Please speak to the class teacher if you would like to come on a trip or attend a story telling session.

Preparing for our school carnival: We will be studying the United States of America and learning how to line dance!
Getting ready for our Graduation Ceremony: We will be learning songs and preparing things to show our parents and carers.
Working with Reception children for our Early Years Music Festival: We will be decorating our outside area to prepare for our music festival.  More information to follow.

Phonics, Reading and Writing

We will be learning how to write our names all by ourselves. You can ask your child to write their name on every picture they draw at home and bring them in to show the class.

We will be learning our letters and sounds to help us with our reading and writing. We will be learning the following sounds:

We have also been learning how to blend these sounds together to read short words. The children have been reading words such a:
