Tips for Parents
Nursery (am) Home learning
Please complete activities given to you in your:
- Mark making pack (from the mark making workshop)
- Parents evening pack
- Home learning pack
Each day please practice writing your name, with the correct tripod pencil grip and letter formation e.g. top to bottom, left to write. Some children were beginning to challenge themselves to write their surname and numbers 1-10. Keep challenging yourselves Nursery, you are superstars!
Share a story/Sing a song
Each day please share a story, build up your child's love of their favourite stories, particularly traditional tales like Jack and the beanstalk, Goldilocks and the three bears, The three little pigs, The enormous Turnip. Some of our favourite stories we love- Dear Zoo by Rod Campbell, We're going on a bear hunt by Michael Rosen, Oh Dear! by Rod Campbell, Monkey puzzle and The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson, The Tiger who came to tea by Judith Kerr. Many of these stories can be found on YouTube if you do not have a personal copy. Also please sing each day, singing our children love to sing and perform, why not role play some of their favourite songs like 5 monkeys jumping on the bed! Be careful not to fall and bump your head though!
Number and shape play
Each day please count e.g. count up and down the stairs, count the number of birds, cars you see, play hide and seek and count to 10, count the number of cars, dolls, teddies you have. There are endless things to count! Go on a number hunt, or a shape hunt too!
Nursery (pm) Home learning
Please complete activities given to you in your:
- Parents evening pack- Number rhymes, Nursery rhymes, sharing a story tips.
Please spend time developing physical skills, for example: cutting, tracing, mark making (early writing) with marks, pencils, crayons, paint on large paper (old wallpaper, large cardboard boxes) Engage in action rhymes e.g. head shoulders knees and toes, the wheels on the bus. Use scarves, old material, large bed sheets, to develop strong arms and gross motor skills.
Communication and language
Please use the Nursery rhymes and Number rhymes sheets given at parents evening to help your child learn the words and actions to the songs. Play the missing word game- sing a song together and miss out the words and see if your child can fill out the missing blank! Also please engage in preparing food, a snack, a smoothie, a milkshake or bake a cake together. Talk through each step and involve your child in mixing, chopping (with supervision) and decorating!
Share a story each day- Some of our favourite stories are: Hide and seek pig and Fox has lost his socks by Julia Donaldson, Dear Zoo and Oh dear by Rod Campbell, Animal Boogie, Brown bear, Brown bear by Bill Martin, The very hungry caterpillar by Eric Carle, Pip and Posy stories.

To our children, we miss you dearly.
