All About me- Privett Montessori welcomed all of the children back to nursery after a lovely long and hot summer holidays. The children were delighted to be back and made sure to tell everyone stories about their summer holidays.
Our topic for the first few weeks was ‘All about Me’. We learnt all about families, sisters, brothers and any pets that we may have at home. We also learnt a song about families and made our very own family picture by making a family chain. The children enjoyed mostly enjoyed telling their “all about me” stories. However, one of our favourite activities was when we made blackberry and apple crumble. We used the apples that Miss Paula bought from the apple tree in her garden and fresh blackberries that we picked from our nursery garden ourselves.

Over the next few weeks in order to try and increase vocabulary, we introduced our letter of the week, word of the week and show and tell, which has been a great success.
The following week, our word of the week was breakfast so the children told us what they ate for breakfast and we made some porridge to enjoy at snack time.
As summer turned into autumn over the next few weeks, we spoke about leaves changing colour and falling to the ground. We learnt a song called ‘Leaves are Falling’ and we did some leaf printing and read lots of books about Autumn.
The children also enjoyed Miss Paula opening a pumpkin so the children could explore what was inside. They had fun washing the seeds and used them for crafts.
In our last week before half term, we painted some pumpkins and made some salt dough ones which we painted finally we enjoyed a nursery trip to Durleighmarsh to pick pumpkins and of course visit the lovely coffee shop.
