Medium Term Planning
We are looking forward to a fun filled term leading up to Christmas at Puffins. You will find below the medium term plans for this term and the learning objectives for the seven areas of learning: Communicaton and Language, Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Art and Design.
We will start the term learning about the Hindu festival of Divali and making firework pictures. We will make rangoli patterns as part of learning all about 2D shapes. Our new area in nursery this term for imaginative roleplay will be a post office. We will focus on the stories of The Jolly Postman and Postman Bear to stimulate interest in mark making and writing. The children will be learning about weight and size by comapring parcels in the post office. The stories of The Helpful Hedgehog and Squirrel's Busy Day will be used to talk about friendship and how to be a good friend. Towards the end of term we will have all the wonderful Christmas activities.
We have had a colourful start to the term creating firework pictures and Rangoli patterns.
We have had a lovely start to forest skills this term and it has kept dry for us!
The children have been very creative. They have been making leaf people and wild area art.
