Nursery & Reception

A message from your teachers

Hello Nursery and Reception!

We hope you are enjoying your time with your family and have been having lots of fun in the fabulous weather we’ve had. We are sure you are doing a great job with your actvities at home and we really cant wait to hear about what you have been up to when it is safe enough to come back to school.

Keep safe everyone, we miss you very much. 

Mrs Lowes, Mrs Wright and Miss Selvidge

Some new resources and activties have been printed out for your child. There are actvities that are specific for your child so would be great if you could support your them. Your new packs will be ready to collect on Monday 27th April.

NURSERY:

A suggestion for providing some structure for your child’s day. I will add activities and games that I think will be relevant for your Nursery child via the EvidenceMe App. Make the most of the weather and play outside, build dens, hunt for bugs, mark make with any old paint brushes and bowls of water and most of all have fun!! Keep talking to your child and ask them questions about what they are doing.

9am: 

Joe Wickes Live- https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAxW1XT0iEJo0TYlRfn6rYQ 

A fab way for the whole family to be active, have fun and kick start the day 

9.30am-10.30am: 

Play.

10.30a.m-11am: 

Snack and a story. This would be the usual time we stop in school to have our milk and snack. You could read your child a story at this time. There are links on the home learning packs to a range of interactive and animated stories to share with your child. You could also use the link below to discuss one of the questions of the day. 

https://www.topsypage.com/questions

11am-12pm: 

Play

12pm-1pm: 

Lunch time and (weather permitting) a run around outside. Leave this play quite open as this would be the time when children would be having their lunch and having a break outside. 

1pm-2.30pm: 

Play. You could use this time to give your child some screen time such as playing some maths or phonics games.

2.30pm-3pm: Fruit and a story. You could also use this time as “talk time” to talk about what they have enjoyed doing today. Is there something in particular that they would like to do tomorrow? We will also send some videos of staff reading a story that you can use with your child. There are also links in the home learning pack to lots of online and interactive stories you can share with your child. 

RECEPTION:

A suggestion for providing some structure for your child’s day. I will add activities and games that I think will be relevant for your Reception child via the EvidenceMe App. The RWI session is really beneficial for your child so if you could try and ensure this is done on a daily basis, this would be great. Make the most of the weather and play outside, build dens, hunt for bugs, mark make with any old paint brushes and bowls of water and most of all have fun!! Keep talking to your child and ask them questions about what they are doing.

9am: Joe Wickes Live- https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAxW1XT0iEJo0TYlRfn6rYQ 

A fab way for the whole family to be active, have fun and kick start the day 

9.30am: RWI Phonics Set 1 Speed Sounds Lesson.

10am: RWI Phonics Set 2 Speed Sounds Lesson.    

I have put a note on our EvidenceMe App as to which session your child should participate in.

This is a live stream so can’t be done at another time. We do RWI first thing in the morning as the children tend to be at their best for phonics learning at this time.

10.00a.m-10:45am: (if your child is doing the 10am RWI session, let them have a play before their session starts)

Play.

10.45a.m-11am: 

Snack and question of the day. This would be the usual time we stop in school to have our milk and snack. As you know the children have a question of the day as they enter the Reception classroom. This would be an ideal time to have “talk time” with your child as well as having a familiar activity they do in school to do at home.  Use the link below to discuss one of the questions of the day.

 A message from your teachers

Hi Everyone!

I hope you and your families are staying safe and are all well and happy. You are all doing so well with your home learning and it has been lovely to see all the fantastic activities you have shared with us. Keep up the good work! There will be new home learning projects for you to have a go at and these will be available week beginning: Monday 20th April.

We hope you had a lovely Easter and have been enjoying the sunshine. We are missing you so much and can’t wait for school to be back up and running again so we can see all your smiling faces and hear your news.

In the meantime, stay home, take care of each other and be good.

See you soon!

Miss Threlfall and Mrs Greer xx

An animated guided reading story split into chapters. Each chapter comes with ‘pre-read questions’ to discuss with your child before you read the chapter and ‘post-read questions’ to answer at the end of each chapter.

Some ideas for at home (No screen needed)

Go on a number/shape scavenger hunt around your house and garden. How many of a particular number or shape can you find? Can you find all the numbers 0-9? Which is the most common shape/ number in your home?

Use some building blocks or potatoes and do some pattern printing. Can you make a repeating pattern? If an adult begins a pattern can you carry it on correctly?

Draw a picture of a member of your family. Can you use adjectives to describe them? Think about:

-What they look like

-Their personality

-Their interests

Use a hula hoop or string to mark off an area outside your house (It doesn’t have to be very big). Count how many:

-Insects

-flowers

-sticks

-stones etc. you can find within that area. Mark off another area and do the same. How are they different? Which has more flowers? Why do you think that might be?
