In Van Gogh class the children have started their year in Nursery with the topic ‘All About Me’ where they have been looking at their favourite nursery rhymes, stories, experiences, families, likes and dislikes and holidays.
The children enjoyed the story of ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’ so much that we made them the three bears' cottage to role play in.
We will also be having a Gruffalo parent workshop where the parents will get creative with their child helping make a big Guffalo display.
Topics throughout the year
Our next topic to lead us up to Christmas will be ‘North pole and South pole including Celebrations’, where the children will have their own igloo in the classroom to get them excited about the topic.
In January (Spring 1) the get the children back into the love of learning after Christmas they will return to the class being ‘Under the Sea’ for their next topic where they will learn about life under the sea.
In Spring 2 the topic will be ‘Animals and Dinosaurs’ and for this we are very lucky to have The Science Dome Company coming into school to take the children on a journey back to the Dinosaurs.
To end the year we will be joining up with Reception for transition to do a joint topic of ‘Life in a garden’ where the children will learn about mini beasts and growing and will finish off with a joint trip with Reception.
