Nursery - Mrs Whitehouse

**********Home Learning Update **********

The way we will deliver Home Learning will change from 20th April 2020. We will all work on a whole school topic of 'How does your garden grow?' found here. Select the insect grid for your child to access the weekly missions. I have left previous home learning resources on our Class Page as you may find some of the activities and resources helpful. For further help please message me on Class Dojo or email mail me on whitehousej15@hwbcymru.net.

Home Learning

For our period of Home Learning, Early Years are going to focus on the topic of 'Wriggle and CrawI.' We can learn together about the tiny world around us where insects and minibeasts live. I have provided a range of home learning activities that you can complete with your child. I have also provided resources and links to different sites that will support your child’s learning.

 

I recommend that you establish a daily routine and spend  around 2 hours a day completing the learning activities which can be enjoyed by all of the family. Make your learning time fun, children will engage and learn more when they are enjoying themselves. Your Home Learning should include  Nursery Daily Do's and 1 or 2 activities from the Home Learning Grids.

 

We also have access to Hwb within the classroom to help children learn more about using ICT in a practical manner. Activities include playing educational games, creating documents and creating pictures. To access this online resource you will need your child's Hwb login. Please email me to receive this information.

 

 If you have any questions about your child’s learning or how to use the resources please email on the following:

Nursery Daily Do's

Get moving - Ideally go into the garden to have some fresh air. You can practise:

  •  running or skipping about
  • balancing on one leg
  • jumping with two feet and landing on two feet
  •  hopping

Be more independent - encourage your child to 

  •  put on and take off different items of clothing on their own
  • brush their hair, brush their teeth, cut up their food

Name recognition - practise:

  •  saying your name. Take turns saying "My name is ..." or " I am ..."
  • recognise the letters of your name, start with the first letter. Spot the letters that make your name, you could see them on food packaging, in a book or comic, magnetic letters on the fridge, foam letters in the bath. 
  • make/form the letters of your name. You could make your letter shapes outside with twigs/pebbles, you can ask for help chalking them outside on a wall or floor, you can make the shape in the air or in shaving foam with your pointing finger.

Sing the Jolly Phonics Song - Listen to and join in with the actions of the Jolly Phonics Song  https://vimeo.com/106231366

Number recognition- Talk about numbers you see around you.

  • Be a number detective and find them on food packaging, on book/magazine pages, on keyboards, washing machine dials, magnetic numbers on the fridge or foam letters in the bath.
  • make/form numbers 1-10. You could form number shapes outside with twigs/pebbles, you can ask for help chalking them outside on a wall or floor, you can make the shape in the air or in shaving foam with your pointing finger.

Autumn Term 2019

Welcome to the new school year, we have planned a busy term. Our class visits to Coed Clase (our school woods) will be on Mondays, please dress your child in a warm waterproof coat and wellies. We will be exploring and getting muddy. 

 

Snack time in Nursery provides the pupils with an opportunity to try different fruits and vegetables, along with cheese, crackers and other simple foods. This social experience allows children to build important communication and literacy skills. Snack is £1.00 per week, payable on Mondays. 

 

Our topic for the Autumn Term is 'Heroes- People who help us'. We will be learning about the different roles of people who help us in the community.
