Each week we will be setting the nursery children a task to complete. This will be a fun task and something they only have to do if they are interested. Please click on the star above to find out this weeks challenge. If you take any photo's of the children's home learning we would love to see them and I am sure the children would also like to see pictures of their friends. Please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will add them to the star below called 'Home learning pictures'. Thank you!
We all cut our eggs out before we started. Millie wanted to make an Easter egg using different materials, Eloise wanted to make an Easter egg using natural materials from the garden and I painted bubble wrap and printed it onto my egg. I gave the girls some instructions while they were creating their eggs , "Can you pick 5 white flowers?", "Can you stick 3, blue stars on?" We also smelt all the items we had collected from the garden. The girls liked the smell of the lavender and mint! Have fun!!
Parent Top Tips For Online Safety
Outdoor learning on a beautiful sunny day! We are having fun using a bucket of water and a paintbrush! This is such a simple activity, but one that I come back to time and time again. We have spent ages in the garden, painting the walls, making marks on the floor, splattering the brush to create patterns and so on. We have noticed our shadows and tried to wave to them! Holding the brush and the bucket of water is good for co-ordination and develops problem solving skills. Best of all, this little one can learn and have fun whilst I am hanging out the washing! I hope you are all finding a way to get outside for some fresh air and learning in the sun!
Welcome to the Nursery page. We hope everyone is keeping safe and well!
Dear Parents and Carers,
We hope you and your families are keeping well.
Although our nursery children are likely to be fairly unaware of the current situation, many will be confused by the sudden change in routine, and will undoubtedly pick up on any stress shown by family members. The most important thing you can do for your nursery age child, therefore, is to spend quality time with them when you can, giving them the love and reassurance they need. Keep things as normal as possible! Play together, read books, draw pictures, have cuddles whilst watching tv, bake a cake and get outside whenever you can (of course, remembering to adhere to the current goverment guidance).
In terms of supporting their educational needs, we suggest that your child continues their play based approach to learning whilst they are absent from Nursery. Wherever possible, we would recommend that you follow your child’s interests when planning activities. Do things they find enjoyable!
This would be the perfect time to practise skills which will help your child be independent. For those of you thinking to potty train, how about tackling it now?
Below are lists of suggested activities which may help you if you are stuck for ideas for what to do with your child. These will cover most, if not all strands of the EYFS curriculum.
