Daily Timetable and suggested learning
Learning in Nursery is very practical and happens in short bursts. Children can only sit and listen for a short amount of time. The suggested timetable below will give you an idea of how you can structure your day with your Nursery child.
Before you start the days work please register by
- Click on Guestbook
- Write your Full Name in the name box and your Class in Comments
- Access the sites and complete any relevant tasks set.
Try to give them lots of time to play and learn for themselves alongside sitting to learn with a parent. Some time spent doing exercise or dancing every day will help to keep your child healthy and will help with their mental well-being. Try to go out for a walk if possible or try some of the activities suggested below. If they have siblings, this could be a family activity! Try to limit times spent playing on screens and watching TV as these can have the opposite effect and make children grumpy. 1 hour screen time is more than enough every day. Try to supervise screen time as it is very easy to click on inappropriate links. Some suggestions of appropriate apps are given on this page. Above all try to make learning fun and give your child lots of praise for their efforts.
This weeks learning
Hello Nursery! We hope you are all well. Miss Kausar and I are missing you lots. We hope you have had a lovely weekend and that you are checking in every day to do some learning. Take a look at this week's activities that are all based around Easter. Don't forget to send us a message on the guest book or an e-mail to Nursery@st-patricks.oldham.sch.uk to show us what you are getting up to. It was so nice to get messages last week from Safaa, Dawud, Hasnain, Zephan and Alicja. Any pictures you send will pop up on the Reception Twitter feed.
Have a fun week!
