Autumn Big Talk 21.10.16

Date: 20th Oct 2016 @ 9:10pm

We do not set homework as such in Nursery, as we believe that it is important that families have plenty of time after school to be together, to read together and also to enjoy each other’s company! Each week we will send home, as part of the newsletter, a picture, photo or image for you to look at with your child. These photos have been sourced from Google Images and Pinterest! They are interesting and unusual images chosen to encourage, develop and increase children’s vocabulary and listening skills. There will also be some examples of questions you could ask. We would LOVE to hear your child’s responses on our Nursery blog page!


Here is the half-term's Big Talk picture. Ask your child questions about the picture – What can you see? Who is there? What do you think is happening? What are they doing? Why? Where? What time of year is it? How do you know? Tell them your own opinions about the picture and then ask for their opinions. How does it make you feel? We hope you enjoy this week’s Autumn image!

Ava says "The leaves are falling down because it's Autumn". The lady in the green jumper is "Mrs Fitzsimons" and there are lots of animals. :)

Olivia said, " There are leaves, an owl, birds, rabbit, squirrel, tree's and people." Olivia goes on to say, " there is a boy and a boy and a girl with their Mummy. They are playing with the leaves because it's Autumn. They like playing." Olivia thinks it's a nice picture because him and him and the girl and Mummy are having fun! 🙂

Thank you so much for the great comments!

Ava, lovely vocabulary! The picture reminds us of our Autumn Hunt! It looks like we're there collecting acorns, leaves and conkers just like we did a few weeks ago, doesn't it?!

Olivia, what super ideas! We think the family look like they are having such a nice time together. Maybe you could ask your family to go on a similar hunt too?
