Welcome to the Autumn Term in the Nursery class

Our learning theme for each week is guided by the children. 

Each week we will have a focus theme and our group time learning (Adult Directed Activity) will be based around that theme. 

 

 

 


  What the children say...

As usual we asked the children about what they’d like to explore, play with and learn about over the next half term. All ideas will be interwoven through planning. Click on the link below to see our ideas and thoughts.

This Term the unit link to; learning about and from the relationships with the people in our lives and important people in the lives of religious people.

The children will have the opportunity to:

  • explore some of the ways in which people express care and concern for each other and the importance of this for relationships

  • to develop an awareness of their own value and the value of others

  • to explore how people know that they belong to family and other groups, including religious groups

  • learn about key figures in their own lives and key members of a local religious group  

  • learn about how important people within religious groups show care and concern.

Computing

Our Computing theme this Term is 'Finding Out'.  The children will have the opportunity to:

  • find out about photography, taking photos and comparing digital, film and other methods of recording images.
  • investigate and interact with digital timers and sound meters.
  • explore ways of changing their voices, using cupped hands/simple tubes and/or sound morphers and record the result; compare to recordings of their normal voices.
  • use digital and onscreen resources for research and finding out.
  • usin a range of input devices, so that they become proficient in using a mouse and touch pad as well as tablet and touch screens.

We will continue to talk about who we can tell if any technology makes us feel worried or uncomfortable.
