Sharing Our Curriculum - Term 1

We send home more detail about the activities and themes for each term. These sheets will have advice on activities you may like to do with your Pre-school child. If you need a replacement sheet, please speak to your child's Key Person.

In Term 1 (September - October half term), in addition to following the children's interests and opportunities that arise, our focus topic is Music and Movement/Imagination


  • Settling in – all about me

  • Autumn activities

  • Harvest festival


  • If there is any parent who plays a musical instrument and would be willing to come and play it to the children please speak to Stella

  • Make a musical instrument with your child (lots of ideas online)

  • Send in a photograph of your child’s family (please write child’s name on the back)

  • Go on an Autumn walk collecting leaves, twigs and pinecones - why not make a picture with them and bring it in to show us?

Don't forget to fill in a WOW! slip (available in the lobby) for anything your child does at home that you'd like to tell us about - this can be anything, big or small!
