Nursery

Early Years Curriculum Overview

 

Home Learning

 

 Here are some of the home-learning photos that I have received of children throughout Nursery, Reception and Year 1. Great effort everyone!

 

As more content is added to this page, I'm aware that it becomes harder to find the different links to the websites that I've mentioned previously. So I have created a Word document with all of the website links that I've shared with you so far to make it easier to access them. Any new links that I tell you about will also be added to this document.

Home Learning Info

 


On this page I will include links to videos and activities that your Nursery child can be completing at home. As mentioned above, The Body Coach - Joe Wicks will be completing a 30 minute P.E lesson every weekday morning to help keep the nation active inside their homes. If you follow the link and click 'Subscribe' you will have access to the Live P.E Lesson every morning, as well as other exercise videos on his YouTube Channel.

If you have any questions regarding home-learning with your Nursery child please email the school office and this will be forwarded to me. Likewise, if you wish to share updates about what your child has been doing regarding home-learning then that would be great!
Mr. Williams.

Ideas For Home-Learning
Attached below are two activity booklets that your Nursery child could practice working through. One is a booklet about forming and using letters of the alphabet and the other is about forming and using numbers 1-10.

Letter Formation Workbook Activities
Numbers 1 - 10 Activities

-Try to encourage your child to count different objects found around your home environment and practice ordering 2 or 3 items by length or weight.  Can your child spot any familiar 2D or 3D shapes around your home?

-Get creative if you can - make models using boxes and cartons normally recycled, paint pictures, draw and colour-in pictures if you have the resources to do so.
Sing songs and nursery rhymes - try clapping/tapping/moving to the beat of a song and listening out for the different instruments.

- Try to read as often as you can with your child and ask questions about what happened in the story and who the characters were after you've read it. Perhaps your child could role-play some of the characters from a story and act out the story using props found around the house.

- Most importantly, have fun with home-learning!
