Should your child be isolating or off school this year, and if they are well enough to complete work, this page will provide him/her with work for the first day or two of their absence. Please upload any completed work or activity onto Tapestry.
If your child then needs to be off for a further period of time, please contact Miss Goldstraw by email:
Should the entire Nursery class be shut/close then we will continue to set work for the class online through your child's Tapestry account.
Here's a link to Nursery's Padlet page, if you require the password please contact one of the EYFS team.
Each morning in Nursery we do our register and complete our date and weather chart.
Here is a link to an online version - Date and Weather Chart Online
Have a go at asking your child what day of the week it is - there's a link below to the days of the week song we sing-a-long to at school. We then discuss what number the date was yesterday and count up to see what number will come next. There is also a link to the months of year song we join with each morning to think about what month we are in. We talk about what the weather was like on their journey to school that morning, encourage your child to look outside, and discuss what weather they can see.
We complete our self-registration, while at home encourage your child to have a go at writing their name independently, copying your writing of their name, or writing over the top of your writing.
Remember to support your child in holding their pencil using their pincer grip with their chosen hand.
We have been learning to recognize and identify 2D shapes such as circles, squares, triangles, and rectangles.
There is a few videos and games for the children to watch and play on - https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zf33y9q/articles/zrmkcqt
Ask your child to go on a 2D Shape Hunt. Encourage them to simply walk around your rooms and look for shapes. What can they see?
You could make some shape magnifying glasses - cut out a shape and glue it on a lollipop stick or download and cut out the ones below.
As an extension, they can now have a go at the Shape Monsters game - please click here.
We have been practising reciting numbers in order to 10 in lots of different ways (if you feel your child is secure at this try up to 15, then 20).
At home, you could play a game of "Hide and Seek" with your friends or family. You can be the ‘seeker’ and everyone else must hide. Can you close your eyes and count to 10 while everyone else hides? When you open your eyes, can you find them? Where are they hiding?
Then you can swap, can you hide before the 'seeker' gets to ten?
Another game you could play is "Hide the teddy" - Find a small toy, such as a doll, teddy bear or plastic dinosaur use this to play a ‘Hide and Seek’ game in which the toy will be hidden as numbers to ten are said. The child will then look for and find the toy before swapping roles with you. Encourage your child to say the numbers to 10 as your toy hides, find your toy once you have said all the numbers up to 10 in the correct order, help your toy hide as someone else says the numbers.
Use questions like these to make your child think:
Here is a game the children to enjoy playing on the interactive whiteboard while in school -https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zjkphbk/articles/zd4b382
