Helping your child at home

England (england) on: England Blog

I would just like to thank all the parents and adults for all the support over the last half term, lots has been going on in Nursery now that all the children are settled in. Our new topic this half term is ‘Seasons and Weather’ please talk to your child about the different weather that they see each day. We will be sending home learning logs at the beginning of next week with a new task for the children to complete. We loved seeing all the wonderful work they did in their last piece of homework and are very excited to see what they produce next.

 

Ideas to help at home

We would really appreciate your help to support us by carrying out these small suggestions at home:

  • Talk with your child about things they like to do, their favourite story or television programme. Encourage them to look at you when they are talking and to listen as well as talk.
  • Look at books together and talk about the story. Encourage your child to answer questions about the story and try to predict what is going to happen next using the pictures as clues. Show them how to hold the book correctly turn the pages carefully.
  • Use opportunities around the house to practice counting. Count the plates/cups at dinnertime, tins in the cupboard, encourage your child to point to each object as they count. Look at numbers in the environment – door numbers, car number plates etc. try to find a particular number. Count footsteps when out for a walk. Say a number and your child can count that many steps. Take it in turns to choose a number. Play board games together this will help with number skills and is great fun.
  • Help your child to develop their pencil skills by encouraging them to draw lines and circles, do dot to dot pictures and draw round templates. Show them how to hold the pencil correctly.
  • Encourage your child to dress independently including shoes and socks. Please help teach your child to put on their coats independently and encourage them to try to fasten the zip. They may struggle to start the zip but please allow them to practice pulling the zip up.
  • Help your child let you know when they need to go to the toilet.

Thank you, 

Miss Bentley

Welcome to Nursery!

England (england) on: England Blog

What a fantastic first week we have all had! I am very proud of all the children that have started at Nursery over the last week, both new children and children returning from last year. They have all come in and settled straight away, engaging in all the different activities and showed excellent manners and respect towards the environment and each other.

We know there are a lot of changes in the Nursery and we are very grateful for the support and patience of parents and children. You have two new faces to get to know, both myself (Miss Bentley) and our Nursery nurse Miss Fox. We cannot wait to get to know all of you over the next few weeks.

If you have any questions or concerns at all please come and speak with me, I will be more than happy to help.

Here’s to a fantastic first half term!

Thank you, 

Miss Bentley

Our current books

England (england) on: England Blog

In Nursery we are reading 3 important books at the moment:

Penguinpig is a story about a little girl who chats online to a stranger at a zoo. When she arrives to meet her online friend it turns out it isn't a Penguinpig at all, but a large scary bear who wants to eat her. The little girl talks to her parents who explain how to stay safe on the internet. 

Oi Dog and Oi Frog are two books which focus on rhyming words. Its all about where animals sit. Dogs sit on Frogs but Mr Frog is not at all happy about this and goes about changing the rules!

Tapestry

England (england) on: England Blog

This week we launched our new online profiles called 'Tapestry'.  If you haven't already done so, please complete and return the parental return so we can set up logins for all parents/carers.  You may also add a childminder to your child's account.

Our children have noticed the staff suddenly using tablets. Many of our children have been looking through their observations already and have commented on what they have been doing. Please look at your child's tapestry account with them at home and share any comments which they make.

Thank you, 

Mr Tunnell
