Nursery Home Learning

23rd February 2024

 

Dear Nursery children,

 

This week we have been been learning a little about the Baptism of Jesus. Have you been Baptised or have you been to a Baptism? Maybe you could talk to your grown up about this. We saw that Jesus was Baptised in a river. Is this what happened to you/others? Jesus was Baptised by John the Baptist. Did he Baptise you/others? How did you celebrate and who celebrated with you?

 

Please include a photo/picture in your Home-Wow Book so that we can share these with your friends.

 

Have a great weekend

You have not been given your Home-Wow Book, this week.

 

This week share the clip (link below) of the 'The Gingerbread Man',  with your grown-ups. Talk with them about the characters, setting and  what is happening in the story.

Dear Nursery children,

 

This week we have been sharing the story 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff'. 

 

Your challenge is to tell the story to your grown-ups. Maybe you can make up your own story...

 

Have a lovely weekend

Dear Nursery children,

 

Thank-you for sharing your shiny learning. You found a lot of shiny objects.

 

This week we have been thinking about the number three. When you are out and about maybe you could look for the numeral 3 or maybe you could practice counting three objects? We have been sharing the story Goldilocks and the Three Bears. What objects did we count three of in the story? Were they all the same size? Do you have a small, medium or big bowl/chair/bed in your home?

 

Have a great weekend

Dear Nursery children,

 

This week we have been thinking about the journey the Three Magi (Wisemen/King's) made to see the baby Jesus and the presents that they gave to him; Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh. Can you remember that the Gold was shiny? Your challenge this week is to look for shiny objects around your home/when you are out and about.  What will you find? How many objects will you find? Maybe you could ask your grown-up to write down what you find, in your Home-Wow Book.

 

Happy searching

Dear Nursery children,

 

This weekend you have been given your Home-Wow Book.

 

You were little superstars today, telling your grown-up's the story 'The Nativity'. 

 

Your challenge this weekend  is to tell your grown-up about the story of the Nativity. Look at the photo below and talk about what you can see.

 

Maybe you could draw a picture in your Home-Wow Book. Ask your grown-up to write down what you say.

 

Have a great weekend

The Nativity

8th December 2023

 

Dear Nursery children,

 

Thank-you so much for joining us on stage at the Christmas Fair. I was super impressed with your performance and I hope that this continues with our Christmas Show, next week.

 

This week your challenge is to prepare a Christmas Jumper for our show, next Friday. If you have not already got one you could make one by adding tinsel/decorations to a jumper that you already have at home. 

 

Additional challenge! We have been talking today and I would like you all to bring in a photo of when you were a baby. (Grown-up's we will be putting the photos up on display so please ensure it's not a special photo that you want returned in pristine condition!)

 

Have a great weekend

Dear Nursery children,

 

This week I have not given you your Home-Wow Books. 

 

Your challenge is to come to the Christmas Fair, on Sunday ready to sing the three songs that we have been learning in school. Please be at the stage (in the hall) for 12.10pm.

 

Remember, your grown-ups want to hear you singing, not Mrs Barber and I!

 

See you on Sunday

Dear Nursery children,

 

Thank-you so much for sharing your birthday learning with us. It was great to see you celebrating. 

 

We have been thinking about candles being lit whilst we have been learning about birthdays, Diwali and Hanukkah. Soon we will be thinking about other lights that we can see. 

 

I wonder, where do you see light in your home? It doesn't always come from a candle...

 

Go on a light hunt. How many lights will you find? Do they all look the same? 

 

Have a good weekend

 

Miss Whittaker

 

 

Dear Nursery children,

 

This week we have been thinking about the celebration 'Diwali'. Next week we will be thinking about how we celebrate our birthday and another Festival of Light, Hanukkah. 

 

Your challenge this weekend is to talk with your grown-up about how you celebrate your birthdays. Do you have cake? Do you get cards/presents? Does your home get decorated? Maybe you could add a photo to share to your Home Wow book? We look forward to sharing your learning, next week. 

 

Have a great weekend

Dear Nursery children,

 

Thank-you for sharing your firework pictures. It seems that most of you heard or saw fireworks, over the weekend.

 

This weekend you have a new challenge. This week we have been thinking about Autumn and the changes that are taking place. This weekend I would like you to go looking for Autumnal objects that can be used to make a leaf person, next week. Look for different shaped, coloured and sized leaves. Can you find acorns, conkers or pine cones? I will be off to Kew Gardens to look for many things... I look forward to seeing what you find. Please bring in what you find on Monday.

 

Have a good weekend

Dear Nursery children,

 

This week I am giving you a new challenge. I wonder if you will see anything lighting up the night sky, this weekend? Have a look out for some fireworks. I wonder if you can draw what you see in your Home-Wow book? What colours are they? Do they make any sounds? 

 

Have a great weekend

Dear Nursery children,

 

Thank-you again for some wonderful Home-Learning. There are so many circles to find in our world.

 

Next week is half term so we have not given you your Home-Wow Book but what you can do is continue learning the rhymes Incy Wincy Spider and  Little Miss Muffet, with your grown-ups at home. I wonder if you can say all of the words in the rhymes?

 

Incy Wincy Spider

Incy Wincy Spider climbed up the water spout,

Down came the rain and washed the spider out.

Out came the sunshine and dried up all the rain.

So, Incy Wincy Spider climbed up the spout again.

 

Little Miss Muffet

Little Miss Muffet,

Sat on her tuffet,

Eating her curds and whey.

Along came a spider,

who sat down beside her,

And frightened,

Miss Muffet away. 

 

Have a great half term break, make sure that you get plenty of rest

Dear Nursery children,

 

Thank-you so much for sharing your lovely home learning. You did some fabulous spider hunting and I was super impressed with you.

 

This weekend I am setting you a new challenge...

 

Can you find any circles around your home or when you are out and about? Maybe you could take a photo of the circle that you find or you could draw it. Ask your grown-up to write down what you say (grown-ups this is so important, it helps the grown-ups in Nursery when talking with your child).

 

Have a lovely weekend and remember you are looking for circles.

Dear Nursery children,

 

Welcome to your first Home Learning.

 

This week in Nursery we have been learning about Spiders. This weekend I would like you to go on a Spider Hunt. This could be around your home, in your garden or when you are out and about. Maybe you could draw some of the spiders that you find or you could take photos of the spiders and put them into your book. Maybe you don't find spiders but you might find a  web. A web that is not lived in anymore is called a cobweb.  Just remember, use your eyes for looking and don't touch the spiders/webs.

Ask your grown-up to write down what you say and we will share your learning in class, next week. 

 

Happy spider hunting

 

Miss Whittaker
