What can I do at home to support my child's learning?
Nursery themes and activities are planned weekly to respond to children’s current needs and interests. An outline of the week’s planning is available on the door in the nursery, sent to via Parentmail and is on the school website, with ideas for linking activities at home. Here are some general suggestions for activities at home: you will probably find them familiar!
Talk with your child about anything and everything!
Sing nursery rhymes and simple songs together and make up your own.
Read to and with your child-books, signs, labels, addresses on envelopes- anything!
Count...in songs, as you go upstairs, putting toys away- and point out numbers in the world around e.g. on your door and in shops.
Involve your child as much as possible in all you do and talk about it.
Make photo albums of special times, people and events and talk about them.
Play alongside your child at home and show an interest in their play at home and nursery.
Talk to nursery staff about your child's interests and enthusiasms.
Your child has a ‘special box’ on the trolley in the cloakroom. They will put pictures and other creations in there to bring home.
Please help your child to keep their own toys at home. It can be very distressing if toys are lost or broken at nursery. Comforters can be brought to nursery and kept in your child’s bag or special box.
