How can I support my child's learning at home?

Why not try these simple ideas with your child at home...

  • Build a den under a table using blankets, towels and pegs!
  • Make play dough with 2 cups of flour, 1 cup of salt and a cup of water!
  • Go on a shape hunt around your house and find squares, circles and triangles in strange places!
  • Make a treasure map and go on a treasure hunt around your home!
  • Play hide and seek with your cuddly toys, who will find the most?

Be as creative as you can be and you and your child will have FUN whilst learning!

We will be asking families to “Spread the Happiness” and send in photographs, be creative or just bring something in to share with Nursery.

Your child will receive a ‘Spread the Happiness’ invitation every fortnight outlining the activity to share with their family.

The activities for this half term will be…

Friday 6 March:

Bring your favourite book to Nursery and share it with your friends at story time. Your child’s Group Leader will display all of the books in the entrance hall. I wonder how many books we will have?

Friday 13 March:

Easter Creation: Make an Easter inspired bonnet, hat, cap or headband for your child to parade in Nursery and win a PRIZE!

Previous activities have included...

-Tell me about you and your favourite things… why not bring them in to show your friends?

Week ending 11th Oct:

1000 Stories Project

On the same day each week your child will come home with a special “Book for Bedtime” book to share at bedtimes every night for a week. Inside the book, we have chosen a “WOW” word for you to share with your child. The idea is that with every book, we are developing your child’s breadth of vocabulary. We ask you to use the WOW word in a full sentence with your child and talk about its meaning.
