Our Autumn 1 Journey

Click here for Autumn 1 overview

We are looking forward to welcoming all the children to Sunflowers Nursery.

The indoor and outdoor provision areas are ready and we can't wait to start learning and exploring together!


Week 1

 All the children have settled into Nursery really well. They have been exploring the indoor and outdoor environment and they are starting to become familiar with the routines in Nursery.

This is what we have been up to:


 Week 2

This week we have started to learn about Autumn. We went on a walk around the school grounds to look for signs of Autumn. We found lots of leaves on the floor and noticed that the leaves on the trees were changing colour. We spotted green, brown, yellow, orange and red leaves. We collected some of these leaves and brought them back to Nursery so that we could explore them further. 



We found an Owl's nest in our classroom - there was a Mummy Owl and three Baby Owls. Miss Watmough read a story called 'Owl Babies'. 


 Week 3

 This week we have been listening really carefully to the different sounds that instruments make. Miss Watmough used one of the instruments to make a sound and we had to find the instrument which made the same sound. We were really good at listening to the sounds and finding the matching instrument. 

We love playing with the instruments in Nursery and making lots of noise!

Week 4

This week we have had a pumpkin on the Funky Fingers table. We have really enjoyed using the hammers to hammer golf tees into the pumpkin.



Our Nursery Rhyme of the Week this week has been 'I'm a Little Teapot' and Miss Watmough put some tea bags in the water. We enjoyed watching the water change colour and smelling the different tea bags. 


Mrs Sharif introduced the glitter to the children this week. She showed them how to out some glue on the paper and then shake the glitter over the glue. We all loved creating pictures with the glitter and I think we all went home covered in a little glitter!
