Nursery (Ladybirds) Remote Learning

Hi everyone! Hope you are all ok.  Its the last week of remote learning!!  I am so excited to have everyone back in nursery together!

Please send me any work you would like me to look at using my email address sarah.richardson@worthvalleyprimary.co.uk.

My daughter Annie has made some chocolate marble muffins, flapjack and honey cake so far – she loves baking!  Please send me any pictures of the things that you bake.  So far I have seen buns, chocolate crispy buns and shortbread biscuits being made at home.  Well done! Keep the pictures coming I’d love to hear from you.

I have provided activities for you to choose each day.  Encourage your child to do as many as you feel appropriate.  The activities are similar to what we are doing in school each week. Have fun, stay safe and please email me anything that you have done.  I really would love to see what the children have been doing at home.

Children can access phonicsplay.co.uk online with the username – jan21 and the password is home.  Encourage the children to explore the phase 1 games.

Here are also a few ideas for extra optional activities that could be done at home with items you might have at home – have a look at the links below if you want some more ideas.

The Early Years Team have collated our very own 50 Things to do in Early Years in Lockdown list for you to have a look at if you want some other ideas for activities that can be done at home.
