In Nursery our topic for Autumn is 'All about me.' This topic is a great opportunity to find out about your child/children. Through play and discussions, we will be finding out about our family, pets, favourite toys, likes and dislikes.

Our focus book in Class is - 'Titch'

"Titch is the youngest and smallest in his family. His brother Pete and his sister Mary have bigger bikes, kites that fly higher, and instruments that make bigger noises. But when Titch plants a tiny seed, they all find that starting off small is just the first stage of growing."

In Nursery we enjoy various indoor and outdoor activities.

National Poetry Day - 1st October 

For National Poetry Day Nursery shared an Autumn Poem.


Autumn leaves are falling down,

twirling, whirling to the ground.

Red and yellow, gold and brown,

floating softly to the ground.

Autumn leaves are falling down,

twirling, whirling to the ground.







In Nursery we have introduced a 'Curiosity Cube' Our Curiosity Cube is based on Autumn. A Curiosity Cube is a great way to promote curiosity, communication, investigation and discussion.

Have you been on an Autumn walk?

                        What changes have you noticed?


Minibeast Hunt

We liked going on a 'Mini Beast' hunt in our garden. We found ants and worms. 

Physical Development

In PE we have been finding different ways to move our bodies. We used ribbons as we moved in a range of ways, pretending to be a firework. The children moved to sounds such as - fizz, pop, bang and boom.

Remembrance Day

We wear a Poppy as a symbol of Remembrance.

Today we will watch this short animation.



Festival of Lights

We made Diya lamps in Nursery with salt dough.
