Our main theme for learning

this half term is…

‘Who are we?’


Throughout this topic, we will have the opportunity to get to know each other and make some new friends. We will look at the unique things about us such as what we look like and where we live.



  • For children to develop positive relationships with children and adults in nursery.  
  • To share their knowledge of themselves and others, including their family.  
  • To find out about what we enjoy in nursery, talking about our play, things we like and dislike and our achievements.  
  • To talk about how we are feeling.  
  • To listen and respond to what other people say, talking about the same theme of conversation.

  • To ask simple questions to find out more information.
