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

 

Practise writing your first name and then surname 

 

Count up to 20 in lots of different voices. Count back down from 20 to 0. Count things in your house - how many light switches? How many lamps? How many forks do you need to set the table for your family?

 

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.

 

Stay safe, stay in, don't visit others, stay healthy

and we'll be back together soon!

The Story of Easter

Christians believe Jesus sacrificed his life for us on Good Friday

Can you make a sign for your bedroom door? Can you count out a number of objects from a larger amount?

Moving and handling and exploring and using media and materials: Cut letters out from newspapers and magazines, or ask mummy or daddy to write letters down on a piece of paper for you. Fill an oven dish with salt or flour. Now try and the copy letters. Language helps children write letters, such as, ‘a circle with a little tail’ for the letter ‘a’.

Making relationships and being imaginative: Take part in some role-play with a family member, such as kitchen role play, doctors, going to the ball and saving the world from bad guys. Parents, let your child lead the role play and think of their own ideas. Let them assign roles, and choose what happens next etc. Can they use items around them as props in their play? Can they introduce new storylines?

Mrs Watts is the class teacher and is supported by Miss Fox, Mrs Shafiq and Miss Sharpe. 

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
  • physical development
  • personal, social and emotional development
  • literacy
  • mathematics
  • 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.
