Autumn Term 2023

It has been a very exciting start to the school year. This term is all about starting Nursery, our family, Autumn, Winter and Christmas!

Below you will find some photographs of what we have been up to this term. 

Welcome to Nursery

The children have been enjoying exploring the different areas of Nursery inside and outside. We have been getting to know our new rules and routines.

All About Us!

In Nursery, we have been talking about our families and discussing our likes and dislikes. We have enjoyed taking part in a range of different activities. The children have been baking their favourite food which is pizza and trying different toppings. They loved spreading on the tomato base sauce and then sprinkling the cheese on. We have talked about how we are all different by the way we look, to the things that we like to do and that all of these differences make us who we are. 

The Leaf Thief

The children have enjoyed exploring Autumn. We have read the book 'The Leaf Thief' it is all about a squirrel who wants to know why the leaves are falling from the trees. The children went on an Autumn hunt to find leaves and other objects that show signs of Autumn. As well as the hunt, we have carved pumpkins and rolled conkers through paint to make different patterns. 


We're going on a bear hunt!

We have been reading the text 'We're going on a bear hunt'. Throughout the week we have been developing our language by going on a sensory walk where the children explained what each tray felt like. We had water, mud, shaving foam and leaves for the children to walk through. As expected some children loved it where others weren't so keen. The children enjoyed an indoor artificial snowball fight where they were instructed to throw the snowballs over arm. Then finally the children went on their own bear hunt around the Nursery garden reciting the story as they wandered around. 

Owl Babies

The children have shown great skills when drawing their own owls. They used images from the story of 'Owl Babies' and drew their very own.

It's Christmas!!

The children have enjoyed the festive period. They have written letters to Santa, performed their socks off, danced their way through their Christmas party and met Santa!


This term will begin with Local History week, where we will talk about places that are familiar to us. We will celebrate Chinese New Year within our Explorer topic. 

Within this topic we will be looking at familiar places such as camping, the park, going to the shops, the beach before moving onto gardening. 

Local History Week

We explored our local area during Local History Week. The children were shown different images of places in Hartlepool and were asked if they recognised any of them. We went on a local walk near our school. Once back to Nursery we discussed our route before drawing a map of our walk where we saw houses, a roundabout, the park, some traffic lights and a row of shops. 

Peppa Loves the Park

We have been reading 'Peppa Loves the Park' The children have been sharing their favourite apparatus at the park. We talked about what we might take with us when going there. A picnic was a big favourite so we decided to make our own sandwiches. The children designed their own sandwich by drawing what they wanted. They then made their designed sandwich. Each child spread their butter, cut the lettuce or cucumber and then cut their sandwich in half. 

Let's go shopping Peppa

The children have read 'Let's go shopping Peppa'. We discussed what things we buy when we go to the shops. Miss Longstaff then focused the children's attention on the fruit and how they are a range of beautiful colours. The children then said it looked like rainbows. They printed different fruits onto a piece of material using colours of their choice. Some children mixed the colours to make a colour that wasn't provided. After talking about the rainbow of colours we used Lego pieces to print our own rainbow using colours of the rainbow. Finally, the children were encouraged to draw the fruit from the fruit bowl in front of them. Miss Longstaff modelled and then the children began to draw their own. 

Peppa goes Camping

Peppa sent a letter to the children in Nursery. She had gone camping but her tent had a hole in the top. The children had to look at different materials and decide which was the most waterproof. 

Throughout the week the children enjoyed extra activities such as painting a campfire with their hands, making their own tent using mini sticks and made their own s'mores to eat for snack time. 

Chinese New Year

The children have been learning about China and the celebration of Chinese New Year. We talked about the different traditions they have in China in preparation for the New Year. The children enjoyed tasting Chinese food, completed a dragon dance, created their own Chinese lanterns, decorated Chinese fans and copied Chinese numbers. As well as talking about celebrations in China we discussed celebrations we have in England.

At the Beach

In Nursery we have learning about objects that keep us safe in the water. W have focused on the language floating and sinking. The children explained to each other what this meant. We then completed an investigation to find out which objects would float and which objects would sink in the water. We have added some other photos of other activities the child completed throughout the week.
