Nursery at Home - Keeping up our Development
If your child must self-isolate due to being in close contact with someone who has tested positive, awaiting test results or due to bubble closure and does not have any symptoms, then you can access this part of the website to see what activities you can do at home in order to keep up to date with what we are doing in nursery.
Please remember that we do not encourage the use of books that force children to sit down at a table for long periods of time; this does not help them to learn. Instead, please ensure your child has endless opportunities to play and be curious, a chance to talk and problem solve and most importantly, be read to.
You will see that reading is at the heart of everything we do and it features twice in the planning. We created some videos to support the reading part of the planning so you know exactly what we do with our core books in nursery. We hope that you find them helpful; after a while it will just become second nature.
We also encourage talk and communication with your child whilst they are playing; this is the best way for them to develop their communication and language skills. Also, at home, we encourage you to speak your home language!
We really encourage you to upload what you've done at home onto the Evidence Me app! SPeak to the front office if you don't know what to do.

We have also been working with The Tapscott Learning Trust on producing videos to help support your child's development. We hope that you find them useful. Click the link to go directly to the Supporting Home Learning EYFS Playlist on Youtube:
