Nursery Home Learning
Activities and Ideas
As the school is to be closed for the foreseeable future we are hoping to share ideas and activities on a weekly basis for you to do at home with your child. We would suggest that children of this age thrive on some structure and routine in their day. Having the same structure every day will really help your child and should help you too if you need to spend time working from home. Try to engage your child with books and stories, rhymes and songs, cooking, games, crafts, physical activity and perhaps allow a little more screen time than usual, but don’t stay on too long.
It is vitally important that your children stay active and keep moving!
In nursery we are, of course, following a play-based curriculum. However, we feel that there are some fun ideas and activities that you could add into your daily routine with your child that would really benefit them and support their learning. In the attached letter you will find lots of ideas and websites to support you and your child. We have tried to include things that your child would be doing each day in nursery and we will update you with new ideas and activities each week so do keep checking this page on a regular basis.
We would also love to hear from you so please feel free to email us at email@example.com and send us any photos of you enjoying activities and time together doing fun things!
Home Learning Pack
You will find some extra ideas in this Home Learning Pack that has been put together by the Nottingham Schools Trust.
Week beginning Monday 30th March 2020
Each week, just like in nursery, we are going to share our story of the week with you. This week it will be:
We're Going on a Bear Hunt
by Michael Rosen
Before we begin, see if you can find a teddy bear in your house to come and listen to the story with you.
Are you sitting comfortably? Then we will begin...
Here are some activities across different areas of learning that you could do linked to the story.
Language and Literacy
We hope you enjoy all of these bear related activities. Look out for your teachers reading some of their favourite stories on here over the coming days! There will be another story of the week to listen to and find out about next Monday (week beginning 6th April). Have a fun week! We all miss you very much!
