Autumn Term 2 - Festivals!

With lots to celebrate, there will be lots of glitter and glue in nursery this half term. Throughout the next seven and a half weeks, we will be exploring the celebrations of Diwali, bonfire night and Christmas.

We will start off by listening to the story of Rama and Sita, looking at Hindu artefacts and designing colourful, chalk Rangoli patterns on the playground floor. Next, we will share our bonfire night experiences, paint Firework splatter pictures and experiment with oil pastels to create a firework scene.

We will finish the term by making lots of things for Christmas; decorations, mince pies, party hats and lots more. We will be working extremely hard to learn our nativity songs in preparation for the Christmas performance in front of our friends and families.

During this half term, we will be reading The Gruffalo and Stickman, as well as the Christmas story. We will continue to work on our fine motor skills, number recognition to 10 and counting one object at a time.
