Nursery

There is plenty of learning planned for your child to access whilst we are closed and they are busy learning at home with you. Look here for learning activities and suggestions.

If you have any questions about the remote learning, please use these new class email addresses to communicate with your class teacher, these email accounts will be checked once a day and teachers will reply (if they are well) following the order they were received.   If you have any other concerns please direct them to the school email address which will also be checked regularly.

Nursery – Remote Learning 

Dear Children, Parents & Carers,

We hope you are all keeping well, staying safe and have enjoyed the lovely Easter weather.   From Monday 20th April we are going to use a Padlet Learning Wall to share activities and ideas for your home learning.  All of the teachers at Littletown will be using this approach to ensure consistency across school.    The Nursery Padlet link is as follows:

                         https://padlet.com/bjackson66/7b2rjn7u8w4yok7k

On the page you will find video messages from Mr Perkins and myself, alongside ideas to keep you busy.  Each note has an idea/activity, and sometimes a link to a website if needed.  As time goes on we will add new notes with up-to-date learning, so please look at the wall weekly.   

We love seeing what you have been up to on Tapestry.  You can upload photos, videos and notes to https://tapestryjournal.com/ - you have all be so busy so far; all the rainbows, cooking, writing, PE and creative activities.    You can also send me any messages or questions  via:   nursery@littletown.devon.sch.uk 

Remember Mr Perkins will still be sharing and celebrating #littlebuilders, #littlegreenfingers, #littlechefs and #littetownwindows. Email the school photos or share directly via our Facebook page and twitter feed (@LittletownAcad).

Most importantly please remember, as your child is part of the Early Years Foundation Stage a huge amount of their learning is through their own self-initiated play and learning.  Opportunities to construct with junk materials or construction sets like Lego provide experiences for physical development but also encourage their problem solving, planning, discussion, adapting and reviewing skills.   

Playing with small world or role playing/imaginative play encourage language development as well as offering up opportunities to mark make, use mathematical skills and develop their social skills and understanding of the world – you will be amazed what learning can be achieved while playing ‘shops’.

This is a really strange time for everyone, especially for the children who need time.  Time – it allows them to process what is going on and make sense of their feelings.    If the only thing you manage in the day is some of the ’10 a day’ then you and your family are having a good day.  This is a time to spend as family, to talk, share, play, tell stories and snuggle.   

Take care, stay safe and look after one another,

Becky Jackson
Nursery Teacher
