Welcome to Birch Class. Here you will find a brief overview of Nursery and there will be updates about all the wonderful things we do here on a daily basis. Enjoy!





Autumn 1

We have been continuing to settle in with our new friends and getting used to the nursery routine. Our learning has been focused on nursery rhymes. We have been finding out what happened to Humpty Dumpty and why he fell off the wall. Our very own Humpty Dumpty fell off a wall in the garden! We helped build a stronger wall for him using blocks and bricks of different shapes and sizes.


The children also made Humpty Dumpty models which all look fantastic!  

We have been learning the words and actions to other nursery rhymes such as Baa Baa Black Sheep, Incy Wincy Spider and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. Story time is one of our favourite times of the day and in October we welcomed our parents and carers to nursery to share books with the children.

As the weather has been kind to us, we have spent time in the garden collecting items from nature and creating some wonderful transient art - what else might we find as the season changes?



Autumn 2

Since half term we have been creating firework pictures using the computer; investigating the inside of a pumpkin and learning about Diwali celebrations including hearing the story of Rama and Sita and creating our own rangoli patterns.

Our learning has been focused around the following core texts:


The children have been retelling the story of the Bear Hunt using small world objects as well as creating a story map.
