Term 1: Who Am I?

We are looking forward to term 1 and getting to know our new children that are settling in. Our first project lends itself brilliantly to getting to know each other as it is called ‘Who Am I?’ The children will get to know us, their new friends and engage in many activities where we will explore similarities and differences. Over the weeks we will be sharing information about our families, likes/dislikes and exploring what makes us who we are.

Throughout term 1 we will be supporting children in learning new routines as well as developing independence within the setting. The children have their own pegs for their belongings, their own picture to sign in with and will be encouraged to gather their own belongings at the end of the day.

We have such a great outdoors area that is accessible throughout the day and this is explored in all weathers. It is fantastic to be able to spot the signs of the seasons changing and, before we know it, Autumn will be here with leaves, conkers and pine cones to collect.

We start phase 1 phonics this term which concentrates on developing children’s speaking and listening skills through games and activities.
