Welcome to the Ducklings page. 

Welcome to the start of the Autumn Term!

We have made a fantastic start to the year and the children are settling in well. If you have any questions about what we get up to in preschool, please ask.

Autumn Term

The overall theme for this first term, until the half term holiday, is "Me!"


First of all we will be looking at "Me at school" and basing our work around the stories 'Harry and the Dinosaurs go to School' and the Kipper picture book 'At School'.


Our activities will be focused on what we can do at school and developing our ability to share. We will paint our portraits and they will be on display in the cloakroom.


In weeks 4 and 5 we will be learning about "Me and My Family". we will be focusing on the stories 'Once There Were Giants' and 'My Mum and Dad Make Me Laugh'.


Please send in a family photograph for our display. We will be finding out about different families and what makes each of us unique.


In weeks 6 and 7 we will be finding out about "The Jobs my Mum and Dad do". This will be your opportunity to come and talk to the children about your job. We will also be incorporating the whole school "Safety Week" and looking at "People who keep us safe" such as the police, fire service, and nurses.

Look at what the Ducklings get up to in the Nursery.......
