Nursery and Eastway Explorers

Nursery and Eastway Explorer's Remote Learning Page

Hello children.

We are learning at home for the rest of the week. Even though we cannot see you, Mrs Cullen, Mrs Grabe, Miss Reid, Mrs Ahmed and Miss Riley are still thinking of you and we are all joined together by the invisible string. Do you remember the story 'The Invisible String'? You can see the video below of Mrs Cullen reading the story. 

 

Here are some activities for you to do at home while we are not in school. The topic we are focusing on this half term is 'On safari'. We have provided you with some activities linked to animals we may see in the zoo or who live in the jungle. Why don't you see how many animals you know? What can you find out about these animals? Which animal is your favourite?

 

If you have any queries or concerns please contact myself or Mrs Grabe at

PEEP Learning together

The Learning Together Programme aims to help parents and carers to:

  • value and extend learning opportunities in everyday life
  • improve the quality of the Home Learning Environment
  • develop secure attachment relationships with their babies and children

 The programme aims to improve children’s:

  • personal, social and emotional development
  • communication and language
  • early literacy 
  • early numeracy 
  • health and physical development.
Normally we would be holding PEEP Learning together sessions in school for parents and carer's to work with their children. Each week I will post some ideas from the programme to support you at home. These are play based ideas to do at home and are suitable for children 0-5 years.

Here are some ideas that the children may be able to create with their toys at home. We have got these activities set up in our outdoor area. There is a car wash, a jungle and a construction site. We use builder's trays in school but you could use a tray, a bowl or a box.

Story time 
Listen to the stories read by Mrs Cullen and Mrs Grabe.
What do you think the stories are about? What can you see on the front cover of the book. What can you see in the picture and can you find the title? At the end of the story can you name the setting where the story took place and can you name the characters in the story. We will make sure we read stories with zoo and jungle animals in.

Phonics
Watch the video of Mrs Cullen going over the letter sounds we have learnt so far. She will also play a phonics game using cups and a ping-pong ball and other games to help us with our phonics. There will also be some listening games for you. Have a look at the game 'Bertha goes to the zoo'. You may want to print the game or make your own. Can you think of animal names beginning with the letter sounds we have learnt so far? s a t p i n m d g o c k e u r

Funky Fingers - fine motor skills
Practise mark making in different ways. Practise writing some of the letters in your name and letters you know. You can write on paper or on a large scale outside with chalk or paint the letter with water.
Make sure you are practising some independent skills such as 
putting shoes on and off independently, zipping up coats, using a knife and fork etc. 
Let's practise our cutting skills using scissors. There are some patterns for you to follow below. And a spiral snake for you to follow.
If you have any dough or a rolled up sock, do some dough disco and sing along to 'Down in the jungle' like we do in school!

Can you follow the lines carefully with your pencil to make the pattern on the tiger? See the link below for the tiger template.
Can you follow the lines carefully with your pencil to make the pattern on the giraffe? See the link below for the giraffe template.
