Nursery Home Activities
If you wish to support your child whilst they are off, you may want to take a look at the Phonics scheme we use in Nursery:
Rml Parent Portal.
This provides a set of short films to explain
- how the phonics work,
- how to read with your
- how to say the sounds
In Nursery we are just introducing Set 1 Sounds to your child.
I include some letter and number formation sheets to help them write the letters.
Please remember to make it fun and put no pressure on if your child is not interested.
Please also try to read to them a range of good quality stories, nursery rhymes, traditional tales and bible stories. There are lots of lovely clips on YouTube to make these activities more interactive.
Also remember to ensure you child continues to practise social and self help skills ie
- Toileting and hand washing
- Dressing (coat, jumper, n shoes, trainers)
- Eating whole pieces of fruit
- Physical activities eg throwing, catching, hopping, jumping
- Mark making with different implements
- Finger skills eg using dough, scissors, threading, fastening buttons
Please ensure you look at our Nursery Notice board outside the classroom door and in the cloakroom for recent photographs of our children and notices to keep you up to date with what's happening in Nursery and around School. We will also post regular photographs on Facebook to let you see what your children get up to so please join our page. Thank you.
Remember: If you have any queries or worries please speak to your child's teachers or indeed any of us before or after the session or arrange a suitable appointment.
FAMILY FRIDAY Please stay and play with your child 8.55-9.30 every Friday. Check the notice board to find out when these sessions will commence.
Please write your child's name in ALL items of clothing
Please make sure you send a spare set of clothes in case of any little "accidents". Please replace these if your child uses them.

SPRING TERM 2020
HAPPY NEW YEAR and Welcome to back to Nursery for our Spring Term.
We will begin our new term by settling the children back in to the environment, and welcoming some new friends to Nursery.
We will continue to learn through play so we will talk to your children and model vocabulary at this time with questioning, and we will also demonstrate social skills like sharing and turn taking. We hope to begin some more formal directed teaching sessions of letters and sounds to encourage listening skills and some early mark making. A lot of our play will still be outdoors so please continue to provide suitable outdoor clothing which may get wet or muddy!
Our Religion topic will be Our Local Church and Community, the Eucharist and Lent and Easter.. We will participate in child focussed liturgies incorporating stories about Jesus and God's word. Children will learn about statues and other religious symbols. Leading up to Easter we will concentrate on the act of Giving.
Literacy will still be done through play and will continue to have a strong focus on communication and talk. We will listen to and explore some traditional tales like The Gingerbread Man, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, The Three Little Pigs. Children will learn about story structure and will join in some repeated phrases. If you could share these stories at home that would be great!
Outdoor physical play is very important in developing the muscles needed to make marks and begin early writing.
Maths will also be done by counting, sorting and looking for patterns in the indoor and outdoor environments
Anything you would like to ask or contribute that will help with your child's learning journey will be welcomed.
