Read lots of paper story books together, listen to audio books or watch a storybook online (there are lots of links to these below)

Draw, paint, decorate lots of beautiful pictures to display in your house to cheer up your family
Go for a safe walk, away from others, with the people you live with in your house - be a detective and look for things on your way.

The Nursery staff here at St Luke's are dedicated to providing high quality teaching and learning opportunities for the children in our care.
We teach the 7 areas of learning on a daily basis through many different ways.
communication and language
personal, social and emotional development
understanding the world
expressive arts and design
We run 2 classes of children who receive the 15hours free funding.
The morning nursery class starts at 8:50/9:00am and ends at 11:50/12:00pm.
The afternoon nursery class starts at 12:15/12:25pm and ends at 3:15/3:25pm.
We provide full time places for those receiving the 30hours free funding or to those who wish to pay to top-up to a full time placement.
The children who attend our school nursery are required to wear a full St. Luke's uniform and to follow the school's uniform policy. A book bag is required but a P.E. kit is not.
The children in nursery receive a home-school book in which Mrs Watts will set suggested activities that you can complete at home with your child to consolidate or further their learning. In place of this there may be useful information for parents and carers .
Each Monday the books are collected in and returned on a Tuesday.
Each week Mrs Watts will also sent home a different library book for parents and carers to share with their child at home. Adults are encouraged to make notes and ask comprehension questions about the text.
Here are 7 great ways to learn at home!!
Sharing books and stories - telling stories and talking about pictures in books helps children to learn and understand new words and also develop a love of reading.
Singing songs and rhymes - singing songs and rhymes together teaches children to predict language structures and develops their vocabulary.
Playing with letters and sounds - playing games with the shapes and sounds of letters is a fun way of introducing children to language and early reading.
Setting up a play date - babies and young children learn through play. Playing together helps children develop the skills they need to communicate well and socialise, especially when they start going to nursery and school.
Getting out and about - when you go out for a walk or you’re at the supermarket, help children to spot and recognise the signs and words around them. This encourages talk.
Painting and drawing - making marks and scribbles with a lots of different materials allows children to express themselves, helps their muscles develop and supports early writing.
Using the library - parents and children can borrow books for free and attend storytelling and rhyme groups.
