Autumn Term 1

September - October


The Three Little Pigs

This week in nursery our focus story has been The Three Little Pigs. The children really enjoyed this story. We retold the story using story props, puppets and toys, made marks about the story and ordered the numbers 1,2,3. 🐷🐷🐷🐺


Goldilocks and the Three Bears

This week our focus story has been Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We have used lots of size language, ordered objects from the story by size, made marks about the story and used natural objects to create bear pictures.

Jack and the Beanstalk

The children have really enjoyed this weeks story, Jack and the Beanstalk. We have been using our fine motor skills to cut and thread beanstalk leaves, retold the story using props and toys, explored planted seeds and flowers and counted ‘magic’ beans - it’s been a very busy week.


The Three Billy Goats Gruff

This weeks traditional tale had been The Three Billy Goats Gruff. The children have loved this story and have all explored changing their voices to sound like the grumpy troll. We have played with bridges and made our own using blocks, made some really nice goat masks and practised using our size vocabulary, big, medium and small. 🐐🐐🐐


Ilkeston Fair

🎠🎑All the fun of the fair🎑🎠.

This week we have had so much fun learning about Ilkeston’s Charter Fair. We have used our construction sets to create our own rides, told stories with the small world toys, collaged candy floss shapes and used cotton buds to recreate the busy lights we see. We also enjoyed some yummy hot-dogs for snack today and tried some sweet, sticky candy floss. πŸŒ­πŸ˜‹


We have had a lovely week in nursery enjoying lots of different activities linked to Harvest. We read the story of The Little Red Hen and then baked some yummy breadπŸ˜‹. We have also enjoyed role playing in the bakery, printing, counting and weighing sets of vegetables and making up our own stories with the farm story toys. πŸ“πŸžπŸ€©πŸ»
