Remote Learning - Nursery
Our teachers are still looking after your children during this lock-down. Each week, we will contact you to check that everything is going well and to see if there is anything else we can do to help. Furthermore, they will be available through Tapestry, and Class Dojo, marking the children's work and answering questions. Please see a suggested remote learning timetable at the bottom of this page.
If children are self-isolating, there is an expectation that they still complete work daily following the timetable of their class and return ALL work through Tapestry, so that the teacher can give summary feedback about areas for improvement. If the year group bubble has to close, there is an expectation that children will move to remote learning and continue to follow their timetable.
Each week, we will provide an overview of the work being covered that week (this can also be found on our weekly newsletter on the Remote Learning home page). We will also provide live learning opportunities each week and the timetable for this can be found on the Remote Learning homepage. Please keep a look out for the links which will be posted on Tapestry and Class Dojo.
If you need to contact us at any point, you can message us on Class Dojo/MCAS or call the school office on 01472 320016.
Weeks commencing 22nd February and 1st March 2021
Nursery will be looking at a classic story together, 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar'. We will be looking at this story to help us explore our new science topic – growing. We might even have some exciting visitors crawl in to watch! We will be getting crafty a lot after half term too, so please start saving your empty cartons and boxes for us so that we can build up our junk modelling supplies.
Weeks commencing 1st February and 8th February 2021
Well done to everyone completing lots of home learning and thank you to those who are sharing lots of this with us. We love looking at your photos and watching your videos - the children in school love seeing their friends!
Over the coming weeks, Nursery will be exploring the traditional tale 'The Gingerbread Man'. We will focus our learning on story telling using actions, key phrases and exploring the different ways the gingerbread man might escape being eaten. In maths, we are trying to help a little boy who has lost his dinosaur – I am sure the children can use positional language to help find him. We are also exploring pattern making. We will continue to explore the season with puddle fun and making things to explore the wind.
Please do keep up to date on Tapestry and Dojo; we are working very hard to share lots of useful videos of the teachers at school to support children at home.
Weeks commencing 18th January and 25th January 2021
This week, in the Nursery home learning pack, there are lots of fantastic ideas related to seasons and dinosaurs! Mrs Smith and Miss Maddison will be sharing videos from the classroom and setting some challenges for children.
In our Reception pack, for week 3 we have sent our Talk 4 Writing innovation activity sheets. Please watch our recorded lessons if you can as we will model the activities included in the pack. You will then find that for week 4 we have a new Story - 'The Enormous Egg'. Maths for week 3 is focused around looking at how the number 4 and 5 are made up of smaller number combinations and the focus for week 4 is exploring capacity. Children will also be excited to find that they are still exploring all things linked to dinosaurs!
We have also put together lots of fun activity ideas to develop fine and gross motor skills, and purposeful play, for both Nursery and Reception. We can't wait to see lots of photos and videos of what children have been up to.
