Week ending 26th June 2020


This week the nursery children are enjoying the outside area and the lovely weather. We have been talking about how to stay safe when out in the sun. 

We need to wear a hat to protect our head from the sun.

We should wear sunscreen to protect our skin from the sun.

We need to drink plenty of water.


Celebrations, Festivals and National Events


World Rainforest Day


The 22nd of June is World Rainforest Day. It was created in 2017 to raise awareness of the importance of rainforests around the world for the health of the Earth, and ultimately for your health, too. Rainforests are decreasing at an alarming rate. It is time to pay attention to this vital asset, and reverse the trend of shrinking rain forest areas.

Rainforests do many good things for the earth20% of the oxygen we breath, comes from rain forests. They offer many other benefits, including absorption of harmful carbon dioxide, and stabilising climates. About half the plant and animal species on the planet call rainforests their home. The diversity, and potential of these areas, is nothing short of astonishing.,action%20on%20June%2022nd%2C%202020!


A message from Mr Clark


Mr Clark, one of our P.E Leaders, would like to give you all some information about his favourite sport- football!

On 17th June 2020 the football Premier League restarted after 100 days. The Premier League is the top level of the English football league system. Contested by 20 clubs, it operates on a system of promotion and relegation with the English Football League (EFL). Seasons run from August to May with each team playing 38 matches (playing all 19 other teams both home and away)

For further information and activities see:

Here are a couple of websites containing advice and activities for you to do at home but if you need any help please call the school and I will be happy to talk to you

Nursery 2 children have been following a phonics programme called ‘Read, Write, Inc.’

They are uploading daily phonics lessons onto their YouTube channel, although our nursery children have not completed the whole programme you may be able to find it useful

Click or copy and paste the link to participate in phonics sessions.

You can also find additional information and resources here:


We often play number game with the children using the interactive whiteboard, some of these games are suitable to play on a tablet


Some support for parents around online safety for 4-5 year olds. 



Other activity ideas
Add number stickers to the roof of toys cars and see if your child can find No 1..... No 2

Sharing a story, talk about who the characters are, what can we tell about the story from the front cover, where is the story set, what happened at the beginning, what happened at the end, how can we change the story.

Use scissors to cut pictures and shapes from paper, scissors skills require a lot of hand control

Add colours, numbers or letters to pegs and play a game of how quickly he can find the colour/number/letter you call out and then peg it to a line or piece of card
