Supporting at home-Nursery
Home learning and reading:
Every Friday children are given the opportunity to choose a book from the book box to take home. This can range from story books to non-fiction books. They will also bring home an exercise book to complete a task about the book they have shared with an adult. We encourage the parents to share the book with their child, talk about what they liked/disliked about the story and discuss characters. The children are encouraged to draw a picture in their exercise book relating to the story and when ready begin to use some mark marking to accompany it. Each week the exercise books are shared with the children to discuss their home learning. Children are then able to choose a new book to take home. The books in the book box are changed every term to support the nursery topics.
‘How you can help’ sheet:
Before the start of each new term parents will receive a ‘how you can help’ sheet to introduce the new topic that the children will be learning. This gives you a selection of ideas and activities that you can complete with your children over the holidays to prepare them for the new topic. Activities may involve looking for topic related books, drawing a picture or a visit somewhere to collect leaflets to bring into school. We welcome any completed work to be sent into school to be displayed on the class topic boards. These sheets are email to parents on the last day of each term and can also be found on the website.
