Nursery Curriculum

Autumn 2020

Our Creative Theme is 'Will They Live Happily Ever After?'

Throughout the term we will be reading a large selection of Tradition Tales including Little Red Riding Hood, The Three Little Pigs, The Three Billy Goats Gruff, Jack and the Beanstalk, and The Gingerbread Man. 

We will be planting beans like Jack, taking a walk though the forest like Little Red Riding Hood, visiting the goats (hopefully there won't be any trolls around) and icing gingerbread men!

There are a number of festivals that take place over the next coming months. We will be learning  about, and participating in, Diwali, Bonfire Night and Christmas celebrations - creating Diva lamps, baking Firework bread and making Christmas Cards for loved ones. 


Nursery 2019-2020

This year our class name is Holmes.



Autumn 1

Children will be settling into life at Snapethorpe Nursery, getting to know their new teachers, making friends and finding their way around the indoor and outdoor classrooms. The children will be encouraged to learn alongside and with their peers in order to form positive relationships and develop their personal, social and communication skills.

Our Creative Theme for Autumn 1 is 'People!'

During this theme children will have discussions about what they already know about people.


Autumn 2  Theme 'Celebrations!'

Children looked a lots of celebration pictures from birthdays, weddings, Christmas, Easter and lots more.


The Morning children wanted to know more about weddings.

The children looked at wedding photographs and practised taking photographs themselves. They made wedding favours (bracelets), looked at wedding outfits. They used Purple mash to design their own wedding cake and then baked the wedding cake.



The friendship wedding of the year!

The afternoon children wanted to learn about dancing and the Chinese New Year.
The children explored colour mixing to create their own Chinese Dragon.
