Home learning 2020
Welcome to the Nursery Home Learning Page. We recognise that everybody’s situation is different. Please don’t feel pressure to complete the activities we set, or to complete learning activities for hours and hours each day. You are best placed to decide how much or how little your children can complete, alongside everything else going on in your house at the moment. Above all, be proud of yourselves – we are all having to reinvent what we do each day, with the overall aim of looking after ourselves and each other. You’re doing a great job.
Use Tapestry and/or email me at email@example.com to let me know how you are getting on or if you have any questions only with regards to Home learning. We are loving seeing your photos of your home learning (but please don’t feel pressure with this!)
For all other enquiries use the school email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Class teacher: Mrs Williams
Teaching assistant: Mrs Daly
Other adults you will meet: Mrs Dicks – TA, Mrs Dennison– gymnastics teachers and Mrs Sage – ballet teacher. Mrs Dennison is also the Early Years Family support worker. Should you require any support please do not hesitate to contact her.
We are so excited to be working in the Nursery class and look forward to learning through play using our amazing inside and outside environment.
We offer a soft start to the day so parents are welcome to stay when dropping their children off. Please come into class, stay and support your child settling and talk to the teachers.
Wednesday – Nursery Library day in class. Please bring the book bag, support your child in choosing a book and then take it home to read and share! Find somewhere quiet, talk about the pictures, ask questions to develop comprehension e.g. Why did Goldilocks go into the house? or I wonder why……..
Wednesday and Thursday mornings are P.E days (ballet and gymnastics) so please remember to put your child in loose clothing (leggings for girls) and shoes/trainers they are able to take off/put on themselves e.g. Velcro shoes/trainers. We will be encouraging independence.
Tuesday and Friday are Forest school sessions so please provide sensible clothing for the environment and weather e.g. trousers, labelled wellington boots and waterproofs or sun hat/sun cream. (No open shoes allowed to protect their feet.)
The children love to get wet and muddy in their play so please leave a bag of labelled and spare clothes on their peg. If your child is using nappies then please supply nappies and wipes in a labelled bag on their peg too.
It has been discovered that if children know eight nursery rhymes by heart by the time they’re four years old, they’re usually among the best readers by the time they’re eight. Go to the BBC website link below to listen to and learn the most popular rhymes we sing at school –
