Loving, learning, growing together with Jesus
Hello to all our wonderful Nursery children,
Please click the link below to enjoy a weekly Collective Worship with your family.
We hope you are all safe, happy and well at home.
If we were all in school together, we’d be getting ready for the exciting move to new classes and
making more friends in September.
We know some of you have started getting your new uniform ready for when we all return as a school family. There are lots of ways to prepare for moving up to a new class.
Over the next couple of weeks we will share some ideas and activities to help with this transition.
Your child will benefit from being as independent as possible when they start school. Of course teaching staff are always on hand to help, but children feel a real sense of achievement when they can do things by themselves.
Examples of this include:
If children can do these things independently, they can get straight back to their playing and learning without having to stop and ask an adult for help.
It also helps you as parents to not worry when you know your child can look after themselves (a little bit!) when they are in school.
Being able to interact appropriately with other children and share resources is a key skill that will help your child when they return to school. It’s tricky at the moment to have play dates with other children but turn taking games at home will help. Use social phrases such as “Can I play?” “Your turn now.” “Let’s play together.”
Communication and Language
Many parents worry about their child making friends or asking adults for help when they need it. Good communication skills underpin these abilities. Parents and families have a huge impact on their child’s talking and listening development and the summer is a perfect time to try out simple language boosting activities.
Other Things to Bear in Mind
Use every day experiences as learning opportunities. Even a simple trip to the shops will encourage skills such as:
Reading and writing a shopping list.
Memory and listening skills as your child helps to collect items.
Learning about numbers, counting and money.
Thinking about their local environment on the journey.
There is a lot to think about when your child starts big school and the teachers are all working so hard at the moment to make it the best that we can. These circumstances we all find ourselves in are challenging.
School will be sharing more information with you about transition as soon as we can.
With lots of love to you all, we miss you lots and hope you stay safe, happy and well.
From all the Nursery staff
