This week, we are looking at the story of Tiddler. I hope that you are enjoying listening to stories read to you by older brothers and sisters or mums and dads. This could be the last week of home learning on the Internet as the government has said that we might be able to come back to Nursery on 1st June. I look forward to seeing you at school in the near future.
Stay safe and keep smiling! You are all superstars!
I hope that you all had good time celebrating 75 years since the end of World War 2 on Friday. My girls helped me to make sandwiches and fairy cakes and we had a little teaparty in the garden. This week we are looking at the story 'Barry the Fish with Fingers'. Enjoy trying out some of the activities I have suggested.
Remember to keep smiling and stay safe.

On Friday it is VE Day (Victory for Europe Day). We are celebrating this day because it is 75 years ago that the Second World War came to an end. The war was a very sad time because different countries were fighting with each other. The men from this country went to war and fought. The women and children stayed at home. This was a time of big change as previously, may women had been house wives and were not allowed to do certain jobs. When the men left to fight, women had to complete these jobs. Even the Queen trained to be a mechanic! The cities became a very dangerous place and the children were evacuated (moved) to the countryside to keep them safe. Have a look though the attached ppt about VE Day to learn more.
To celebrate VE Day, the whole country had a party. We would like you to join the rest of the school on Friday, by having a tea party at your house - outside if the weather is good and inside if it is raining!! Please upload your photos onto Tapestry so we can all share these precious celebrations.
Stay safe. Keep smiling!
I hope you all enjoyed the little surprise we posted on the website. I am missing your giggles, your cuddles, hearing all of your interesting questions and answers, your painting splodges on my clothes, your sticky fingerprints on my arms and legs, my hair getting getting a makeover with rulers and your overall craziness!!!! I'm sure mums and dads are appreciating these all important things at home!
I've attached some ideas for things you could be getting busy with at home this week. Don't worry about trying to do everything - you decide with mum or dad what you can fit in this week. Please keep nagging older bothers and sisters and grown ups to read their favourite stories to you every day and keep singing your favourite nursery rhymes. Can you remember my funny version of Twinkle Twinkle?
Stay safe and well done for being home superstars.

Dear Nursery Parents,
During this difficult period parents are being asked to do some home-schooling during the school week in order to help children keep up with what they would be missing in school each week. In order to help you to do this we will be sending home some resources (in a green/yellow exercise book) and guidance today and we will also be uploading some weekly tasks, each Monday, to try complete, on the class page on the school’s website. Take your time to look through these and use them whenever you wish. We will do our best not overload you with too much work every week, so there will be lots of time to complete things at your own pace.
We are suggesting that you put aside time each day to work with your child on their phonics for ten minutes. We would also suggest reading to your children every day and trying to do some numbers and letter sound activities with them. We have attached guidance for completing a phonics lesson.
While it is important to complete these sorts of activities, it is also important to remember that at this stage of their education your child is being encouraged to develop their creative and social skills too. Try to spend time during the day playing with them, doing crafts, exercising, building and asking them lots of questions. Let them play and be creative during the day.
We are sending home exercise books for you to draw, practise letter sounds and numbers in, but we are also encouraging you to document your child’s progress by taking lots of photos and uploading them to Tapestry. If you currently cannot get onto Tapestry, email me and I will make sure that your account is working for you as quickly as possible.
If you have any questions please feel free to email me on firstname.lastname@example.org and I will do my best to get back to as soon as possible.
From all of us in the Nursery team we wish you the best of health and you will all be in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. We are still hopeful that we will see you again back in Nursery in the near future. Thank-you for your continued support.
Mrs White, Mrs Bradshaw and Mrs Bickerton
