Welcome back to St George’s Nursery – and a big HELLO to all our new children and families.
Our topic this half term is All About Me. You will have received information about our topic and other general information in our Autumn Newsletter that went out to parents via Schoolping.
If you are not yet signed up for Schoolping please contact the school office asap.
Over the coming weeks we will post useful information, news and ideas on this page – so please be sure to check it from time to time.
GENERAL HOME LEARNING IDEAS
Whilst your children are at home there is a lot of learning that can take place. Here are some ideas –
- Develop fine motor skills by encouraging children to draw and colour-in as much as possible. Make a book together with pictures of something that interests your child eg animals or Superheroes.
- Practice name writing – make sure you use lower case letters, and only a capital letter at the beginning of the name eg Sophie, not SOPHIE.
- Be creative – use old boxes, cartons and paper to make models – you could create a house, or a rocket , maybe a bus.
- Make dominoes out of old bits of card, count the spots and draw them on.
- Play shops – this is great for counting items. You could make money out of card too.
- Share stories as much as possible, if you run out of books create stories together.
- Develop scissor skills by cutting out pictures from old magazines and catalogues (use age appropriate scissors).
- Use jigsaw puzzles, build with blocks, play with dolls and cars – all these activities encourage and develop useful skills for young children
There are also a number of websites that are useful to help children play and learn – CBeebies www.bbc.co.uk has educational games and creative activities that children will enjoy, it also has a range of stories available. The Government website Hungry Little Minds http://www.hungrylittleminds.campaign.gov.uk also has ideas for Home Learning.
You may also find this website useful when talking to your children about Covid 19.
