Hello Everyone!

I hope you are all safe and well and you enjoyed reading your end of nursery report. I have been thinking about all of our families. It is very sad that we did not get to spend time as a nursery class again before we finish for the summer but I will be looking forward to seeing you all again in September as some nursery children will be returning to me and most of our class will be moving to Reception and be ready for their next challenge. 

I'm sure you will be a little anxious about returning to school in September and the arrangements for your child. We are still awaiting guidance from the local authority and government about plans for September and will inform you as soon as we know more. 

I will be preparing an information pack for the children starting our Reception in September and delivering them in the next few weeks. If you have any questions or queries about you child's learning please contact me in school either by telephone or email.

Well done to all the parents for taking part in the home schooling routine and keeping your child busy, I know you have covered lots of important topics that will extremely useful when your child goes to Reception. 

I have included an information guide below for school readiness and what your child is typically required to do when starting Reception. Please do not worry if your child has not reached any of these objectives, it is just a guide and children learn at different rates!

Thank you

Miss McArdle

Everyday activities to help your child's learning and development

Parents and carers play a vital role in their child's learning and development and there are lots of activities you can do at home or when you are out that will help.

  • counting up and down the stairs
  • setting the table with correct amount of cutlery and plates
  • sorting the washing into groups e.g. pairing socks
  • listening to the sounds in the environment when walking to the shops/the park
  • using climbing equipment in the park to develop muscles and co-ordination
  • sharing a book and talking about the pictures and the story line
  • singing nursery rhymes
  • putting coats on independently and practising zips and fastening buttons.
