Emergency School Closure Information - Nursery
In light of the current advice from the government, you will be aware that schools have been asked to close to prevent the spread of the Covid 19 coronavirus. During this time, myself, Miss Kenyon and Mrs Hunter are committed to ensuring that our Nursery children are given opportunities to continue with their learning at home.
We have provided a learning pack for each child consisting of: number recognition worksheets, a blank workbook, plastic shapes, bead number line, letter book and a pencil.
Each day I will guide you to complete activities with your child that will help to support their English and Maths development and encourage practical learning opportunities (this is how the learning pack will be used – please follow my guidance rather than completing it all on one day – variety is important for children of this age range).
Each morning I will send a message via twitter providing you with ideas for learning opportunities that day. If you do not have a twitter account, you can still access our twitter page by putting @SHCPChorley into the google search bar, our class tweets are under #SHCPChorleyYearN. If you are able to respond to my thread with comments or photographs, I will reply to those during the school day (NB, please only respond to my daily threads rather than creating your own tweet as it will be difficult to find messages on our school account with so many using it during this time).
I will be guiding your use of Espresso https://www.discoveryeducation.co.uk login: student18881. Password: monkey. This website has many resources and videos to watch.
It is important to remember that Early Years is based around play so please continue to allow your child to learn through play rather than asking them to sit for too long completing written activities. If your child is reluctant to complete an activity, try something different and come back to it later. Children may respond well to seeing Mrs Chenery comment on their work on twitter if you message me.
Please remember the importance of reading books together daily and singing nursery rhymes. Everyday activities such as cooking and playing in the garden are extremely beneficial for children’s growth and development.
Should there be the urgent need to contact me directly, please contact me via my school email address at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will endeavour to respond within the working school day.
I wish you and your families all the best of health in these difficult times and look forward to seeing the children when we return to school.
With kindest regards
Mrs C Chenery
