During our first half-term in Ducklings we have been very busy learning about colours and shapes, animal patterns, Harvest time with the Little Red Hen, the story of the Rainbow fish and Elmer. Also about Autumn animals and changes.  We have been learning the routines of Nursery and begun to make new friends.

The story of 'Elmer' helped to teach us colours and that it is ok to be different and that we should celebrate it.  We made our own Elmer characters and put them on display in Nursery

During our Harvest celebrations, we read the story of 'The Little Red Hen' and found out about how bread is made.

The story of the 'Rainbow Fish,' taught us that it is good to share.  We made our own sparkly fish and decorated them with sequins. We made a display in Nursery to show our work.

When we went on our Autumn walk we found lots of beautiful coloured and shaped leaves.  We collected some leaves, acorns and twigs and used them to make pictures.  Some of us also picked some apples from the trees near Nursery.
During the 2nd half of the Autumn term, Ducklings began with lots of fun activities related to Fireworks.  The children enjoyed creating lots of firework pictures, some using paints and others using glitter. We talked about the colours and sounds of fireworks.
During our week on day and night, we thought about different animals that came out at night and learnt a new word 'nocturnal'.
Our topic moved to lighthouses and the children listened to stories with lighthouses in and also learned about why lighthouses are important. All of the children really enjoyed making their own lighthouses.
All the children really enjoyed the story of the 'Owl Babies' and created some lovely paper plate owls. Many of them were able to retell the story.

As we neared the end of the term our thoughts turned to Christmas and the children enjoyed lots of crafts and stories connected to Christmas.  They made cards, calendars and a tree picture frame with their own photograph in.
During our last week we had lots of fun at school.  The children enjoyed lots of colouring and making activities and really enjoyed playing in our Christmas Post Office role play area.  

Outside in the garden area the children enjoyed re-enacting the Nativity with our stable role play area.
The children enjoyed their parties, they met Santa and had the opportunity to open some presents for Nursery.
