Term 1 – Who Am I?
Term 1 is an exciting and introductory project for the nursery children to start their school journey. We spend time getting to know each other, the layout of the nursery, the resources and all about our similarities and differences.
As the children start the new school year we will be there to support them coming into class and settle them each day. As the term goes on we will encourage independence and begin to support the children with more responsibility over their belongings and choices of activities.
The day will be filled with small group times, stories, fun activities as well as a free flow to the outdoor area. The weather is always a bit of a mix in this term so a mix of coats, sun hats and sun cream might be needed.
Some of the activities the children will enjoy this term are exploring ‘who lives with you?’ with small world play, ‘our similarities and differences’ through self portraits and simple graphs showing our different eye colour and many more. We have also set up the environment for the children to have free access to exciting resources that they can use during free choosing time.
We will be asking if any children would like to bring in photos of their family or loved ones to share with their new friends. We find this activity encourages communication as well as support for children to settle well by having photos of familiar people displayed in the setting. These photos can be sent by email for us to print off.
It is a fun filled term!
