     Welcome to Highfield Nursery 

             Welcome back after the short break.  This half term our main topics are Autumn/Winter and Celebrations.  We will be finding out about different festivals, such as Diwali, Bonfire Night and Christmas.  For details of this half term’s objectives for learning please look at the notice board under the veranda.  



The children will also continue to have lots of stories, nursery rhymes, poems and songs. We will be encouraging the children to be ‘talk-a-lot children’ this half-term by introducing ‘partner talk,' ‘make-up stories,’ ‘role-playing’ and encouraging children to answer and ask questions. The story and rhyme focuses for Autumn 2 are shown below.

This half term we will be having Parents’ Week (11th-14th Nov),. We invite you to come and spend time with your child in the nursery setting. We hope this opportunity will give you an insight into your child's daily routine and learning. There will be further information to follow regarding parents’ week.

 We are continuing promoting a love of the outdoors through our outdoor learning opportunities, including looking for seasonal changes and experiencing play in different weather conditions. We encourage the children to put on their own outdoor clothing and to make an attempt at fastening zips and buttons. Please reinforce this at home to help your child towards greater independence.
