Know me to teach me

Children will settle into nursery, separating from their main caregiver with support and, over time, independently. They will begin to develop relationships with key adults. They will explore their indoor and outdoor learning environments, choosing resources to play with and starting to identify their likes and dislikes. They will learn the nursery routines and take part in the nursery day with support. Children will also develop their play skills, including beginning to build turn taking skills and beginning to play with their peers.

People who help us

In this topic, children will learn and be able to talk about the jobs and special roles that people in their family do. They will also learn about some of the different jobs other people do. They will take part in imaginative play which includes characters such as firefighters, doctors, nurses, and polices officers, using new language that they have learnt. With support, children will learn to take turns, resolve strong emotions and show awareness of others’ needs.

Our wonderful world 1

In this topic, children will notice and talk about some of the things they see in their local environment and the places they have visited. As part of this, they will develop their understanding that nature exists in the world around them – on their balconies, in their gardens and in local parks. They will observe the world around them, including plants, animals and found objects. This will help them begin to understand the need to care for the natural environment and all living things, and to understand that nature exists all around them. Outdoor learning will be key. Children will develop their vocabulary and curiosity about the world, making observations and asking and answering questions.

Celebrations

Children will continue to build relationships with other children in nursery. They will know who is in their family and talk about them. They will begin to identify some similarities and differences between their families and others. They will share their experiences with others, including important events that have happened in their life. This will include knowing what and how their family celebrate, and how this is the same or different from other children.

Once upon a time

Children will read and role play a range of traditional tales. They will recall and join in with stories as they become familiar, and use their understanding of these stories and vocabulary from them in their imaginative play. This will foster a love of reading and enable children to begin to develop their own preferences with texts. Children will have the opportunity to use their knowledge of these stories in their mark making, including drawing and painting.
