This year in nursery we have introduced a Curiosity Box which during the year will have a variety of different items in for the children to look at, and wonder about. These items will be things the children may not have seen before and we will be asking them the questions “I wonder what it is? I wonder what it does” and recording their answers. 

In Autumn 1 we explored the items - a cassette tape, a stove top kettle, and a pocket watch. 



So far this term, in Autumn 2, we have explored the items;

A disposable camera


A record

Our first topic this year was 'Who is in my family?'

We discussed our families, and who we live with. We created self-portraits to display in nursery, role-played in the house area and looked at similarities and differences between us and our friends. 


We read the books -

'Harry and The Dinosaurs Go To School'

'Peace At Last'

'Guess How Much I Love You'

'The Enormous Turnip'

Goldilocks and The Three Bears'

and 'Room On The Broom'.
