Throughout this self isolation period, we will update this page weekly during term times with new activities and links relating to the class content. You can also find information about online learning resources and how to support age appropriate conversations about the current situation at: Online learning during school closure. If you have any questions please contact Mrs Jessel by email.
We hope you all stay safe and take care of yourselves and your loved ones!
Dear Nursery parents, carers and children,
We hope that you and your families are continuing to stay safe and well at home. Learning at home probably feels very different to when you're in the Nursery classrooms but doing some activities with family members will be rewarding and hopefully fun and will help to keep you busy! We have put together a plan of suggested activities for this week and into the holidays for you to enjoy. Please do what you can (it's not compulsory) and feel free to adapt and add in your own.
Best wishes from The Nursery Team :)
Week Beginning 30.03.20 and through the Easter Holidays: TOPIC: Chicks/Lambs/Easter
We have added activities relating to 'Chicks' below and an Easter number formation activity.
Other suggested Easter activities include: Making chocolate egg nests, for example https://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/eastereggnests_93841 (good for your child to practise counting and measuring and following 2-part instructions). They might also like to draw/write a list of what's needed (by copying words or trying to write the starting sound of words).
