Throughout September our Babies and Little Toddlers have been exploring the topic All About Me. They have enjoyed looking at their reflections in the mirrors as well as exploring a variety of different sensory trays to see if they can find the pictures of themselves.

EYFS Link: Personal, Social and Emotional- Has a strong exploratory impulse. (8-20 months)

Throughout September our Big toddlers have been learning Nursery Rhymes. They have really enjoyed their morning musical sessions with “What’s in the box” selecting a rhyme of choice and joining in with the actions.

Our Big Toddlers and Pre-schooler’s have also been exploring the All About Me topic to learn more about themselves and their families.  

The children have been looking at their reflections in the mirrors to create their self-portraits using a variety of different resources. The children particularly liked exploring the clay which they described as “squishy, cold and hard” to make their faces.

EYFS Link: Communication and Language- Uses language as a powerful means of widening contacts, sharing feelings, experiences and thoughts. (22-36 months)

This month our give it a go at home has been a great success with lots of family photo’s being shared. The children and parents have also created some masterpieces when drawing the people who are important to them to show their peers during registration.

Our Core story in the big toddler room for the next month is Elmer, the children will be looking at all the different colours that Elmer has.

In the Preschool room their core story is “we’re going on a leaf hunt” why not go out into your garden or visit your local park to carry out a leaf hunt too! Let’s see how many different leaves we can find.

You can share our Core Stories through our Books for Bedtime scheme or you can access some of our activities through our “Have a go at home” scheme, encouraging the positive partnership in learning between nursery and home.

Fun Fact – We have 206 bones in our body ?
