Welcome to Nursery!
Week 2 story of the week: Tabby McTat
Firstly, I hope everyone is safe and well, and secondly, I hope you had a lovely weekend and spent lots of time as a family.
I am in school on Thursday this week, but will be available 8.30am to 4pm to answer any questions or provide extra support.
This week’s challenge
As this would have been our Easter week in school. I would like you to make anything to do with Easter! This could be:
Our sounds this week would have been: e, l, h, r see if you can find anything in your house beginning with these sounds.
Ruth Miskin is still doing live speed sound lessons on her youtube channel (link is below).
This is the link to the parents section on her website, and gives you lots of ideas to support phonics at home.
I would like you to go on a number hunt in your house, and see how many things you can find with numbers on them! Write them down (any marks will do, as long as the children have had a go), and send a picture to me!
Please practise writing your child's name with them, as this will set them up ready for Reception next year!
As last week, send any pictures to me and I will collect them all and send them to everyone so the children can see what one another have been up to.
These are just ideas, and I know lots of you have been doing fantastic things already! Keep going!
Stay safe and well.
As well as sharing all of your brilliant pictures, I have just been sent this wonderful video clip, and have been allowed to share it with you all with Mom's permission!
Keep safe and well everyone!
Story of the Week
Here is the link to our story of the week! I will aim to do one of these a week, and send out some challenges to go with it.
Our first story is one of my favourites. Whatever Next! By Jill Murphy
I have put a selection of the photos you have all been sending together, so that the children can see what they are all up to!
Next Friday would have been our Easter Bonnet parade. If you already had things in ready to make the Easter bonnet, please make the Easter Bonnet and send me a picture, and I will put them altogether. If you don't have anything to make an Easter bonnet. You could make an Easter card or just draw a picture, and I will add it to our Easter parade.
Pictures for the Easter parade will need to be emailed by Thursday 2nd April so that I can collate them and send them out on Friday!
Stay safe and well,
Mrs Fletcher :)
RWI Speed Sound Lessons
Ruth Miskin is offering daily speed sound lessons on her YouTube channel. They are streamed live and then available for 24 hours.
Set 1 sounds: 9:30am - These are the main sounds we focus on in Nursery
Set 2 sounds: 10am
Set 3 sounds 10:30am.
Log in using:
Click on Phase1 or Phase2 activities. These games support the learning we have done in school.
Buried Treasure is a particular favourite. Children sound out the word, or you can sound it out for them, then they decide if it is a real word or a nonsense word!
Lots of interactive number and sound games. The children have used this in school, so should know how to play most of the games.
We are also linking Oxford Owl to our 1000 stories challenge! Any books read at home, either together, online or the children enjoying a book, write the book down and we will add it to their stamper chart once we return to school.
Each week we will be sending a link to answer some 'BIG' questions this is week 1. I would love to hear some of your super answers.
Numberblocks – As above but with numbers! We use these lots when teaching the children about number. https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/shows/numberblocks
I thought this poem was lovely to share with the little ones. It may help when explaining the current situation.

The Time We Spring-Cleaned the World
The world it got so busy,
There were people all around.
They left their germs behind them;
In the air and on the ground.
These germs grew bigger and stronger.
They wanted to come and stay.
They didn’t want to hurt anyone -
They just really wanted to play.
Sometimes they tried to hold your hand,
Or tickled your throat or your nose.
They could make you cough and sneeze
And make your face as red as a rose.
And so these germs took over.
They started to make people ill,
And with every cough we coughed
More and more germs would spill.
All the queens and kings had a meeting.
“It’s time to clean the world up!” they said.
And so they had to close lots of fun stuff,
Just so these germs couldn’t spread.
We couldn’t go to cinemas
Or restaurants for our tea.
There was no football or parties,
The world got as quiet as can be.
The kids stopped going to school,
The mums and dads went to work less.
Then a great, big, giant scrubbing brush
Cleaned the sky and the sea and the mess!
Dads started teaching the sums,
Big brothers played with us more,
Mums were in charge of homework
And we read and played jigsaws galore!
The whole world was washing their hands
And building super toilet roll forts!
Outside was quiet and peaceful,
Now home was the place for all sports.
So we played in the world that was home
And our days filled up with fun and love,
And the germs they grew smaller and smaller
And the sun watched from up above.
Then one morning the sun woke up early,
She smiled and stretched her beams wide.
The world had been fully spring cleaned,
It was time to go back outside!
We opened our doors oh so slowly
And breathed in the clean and fresh air.
We promised that forever and always
Of this beautiful world we’d take care!
