*Home learning update*

As a school, we are moving to providing home learning via Seesaw. You will need to download the seesaw app onto your laptop or tablet in order to access your child's work. More information can be found here.




We will send you an email with your child's log in details. We are working hard to get them to you as soon as we can. We thank you for your patience.

Story Time

Share stories together, encouraging your child to join in with repeated words and phrases. Ask them questions about what has happened in the story so far and what they think might happen next. Your child may enjoy retelling the story themselves once they are familiar with it, using the pictures to help them sequence story events.


Writing and Drawing

Draw pictures together and talking about what you have both included in your picture. Encourage your child to draw pictures of favourite story characters and story events. It can be a way of recording something you have done together.

Help your child to learn to write their name from memory.

  • Help your child learn to write the first letter of their name independently.
  • Help your child copy all the letter shapes in their name.
  • Can your child make their name using magnet letters or homemade letter cards.
  • Play ‘Look and write’ with your child. Model how to write your child’s name, look at the letters together then cover the name. How many letters can your child remember?
  • Challenge your child to write as much of their name from memory as they can.


Letters and Sounds

The Phonics Play website has some free games and activities you can play together. It also has information for parents that you may find helpful.

Hunt for Mini-beasts

Shape Hunt

Go for a 2D shape hunt around your house and in your garden. Can your child name the 2D shapes they can see? Can they recognise a circle, triangle, square, rectangle and hexagon?



The red and orange stage programmes focus on letter sounds and names. They will include blending sounds to make words. Practising saying the sounds that are included in the programme.

Spring Term 2020

Our whole school topic this term is ‘World Kitchen’. In Nursery our focus will be ‘Food Glorious Food’ and we will use stories as the starting point for short blocks of work. We will create a booklet of recipes and activities linked to our focus stories and we will send these home to each family at the end of the spring term.


We will also learn about seasonal changes and different cultural celebrations that take place during the Spring term.


We provide lots of opportunities for role play in nursery, with a Home Corner in the classroom and a number of role play boxes, e.g. doctors, hairdressers, vets, shopping. Outside we have a den/construction resources, a mud kitchen and a pirate ship.



Our focus stories this term are;

  • Goldilocks and the Three Bears
  • The Gingerbread Man
  • The Little Red Hen
  • The Runaway Pancake


We will use non-fiction books to learn about Winter, Chinese New Year, Spring and Easter.

We will be learning nursery rhymes with a food theme ready for our Rhyme Time concert for parents.


Visit the library to borrow some of the books we will read in Nursery. Can you find any information books about food, Winter, Chinese New Year, Spring or Easter?

  • recite numbers in order
  • count small sets of objects
  • begin to recognise numerals
