Our Year in Pictures

Autumn Term - Where Do I Belong?


Throughout the Autumn term our enquiry question is, "Where do I belong?" Here are photographs of our learning throughout the term.


This week in nursery we have thought about the rules and routines of nursery. Look at us in the nursery environment.

We have discussed what we look like and how we are all different. We have even learnt the sticky knowledge: I am 3 years old. I will be 4 next.

As part of our literacy work we read the story, "The Colour Monster". We discussed how the colour monster changes different colours with his mood yellow for happy, red for angry and blue for sad. We made our very own colour monsters and described how we were feeling.

Here is our learning from this week where we have been discussing our families. We have used the sticky knowledge card: I live with .... to talk about our families.

We had a visit from Reverend Julie to talk to us about Harvest. We had stories, songs and prayers 🌾🌽

To answer the question: Where do I belong? we discussed that we all belong in a house. We drew who we live with in our house and thought about the rooms that we might have in our house.
