Jack & the Beanstalk

 

Ideas to try at home - week beginning 22nd February

Jack and the Beanstalk - Listen to the story

Pick up your activity pack from the school office (from Friday 26th Feb) inside you will find a bean and some compost. Ask your grown up to save an old yogurt pot (or something similar) and plant your bean!

Watch the time lapse video below.

Bean Time-Lapse - 25 days | Soil cross section

Talk about the roots growing first. We don't usually see them as they are underground. The roots are like straws, sucking up water so the plant can have a drink.
The shoot starts to grow upwards, towards the sun. The curled up leaves start to stretch open, like we have a stretch when we wake up.

Fe Fi Fo Fum.........there are lots of fun activities in your pack all about Jack, the Giant and growing your own beanstalk!

We're going to have a competition:

***In 3 weeks time (Friday 26th March)

Use the ruler in your pack to measure your beanstalk. Tweet or email us a photo of your beanstalk with the ruler next to it. Whoever has the tallest beanstalk will win a prize!

Good luck xx

Things to try at home:

Week beginning 25th January 2021

This week the weather is looking very

chilly๐Ÿฅถ! Why not stay home, stay safe and stay cosy! There are some ideas below to keep you busy indoors.

See you on Wednesday 10am for our Zoom session! 

Some ideas to help keep your little ones busy at home!

CBeebies has lots of FREE apps to support home learning, including Alphablocks, Numberblocks, Storytime & Lets get Creative!

Things to try at home:

Week beginning 18th January 2021

*Talk about........What new toys did you get for Christmas?
*Can your grown up help you to write a ‘Thank you’ letter to Father Christmas? 

*Can you draw a picture of your favourite toy?

*Can you put your toys in size order, shortest to tallest?

*Listen to the Kipper story. Tell your grown up what happened to Kipper’s toys?

*Can you make a colour wheel with your toys?

Lockdown 2021 

 

Dear Nursery parents & carers,

We hope this message finds you safe and well.

Thank you for patience (again), this has not been the start to 2021 we had hoped for!

 

We have been busy putting some more home learning packs together for you. These will be available for you to collect from the school office from tomorrow (Monday - Friday). If you could please remember to wear your face covering and collect between 10am -2pm to avoid busy periods that would be really helpful.

 

In nursery, we usually ‘learn through play’ and activities are hands-on and practical. We completely understand that this ‘worksheet’ style of learning will not suit all of the children. Please do not feel any pressure to complete all of the sheets. We will put lots of practical activity ideas on the Nursery page of the school website too so please find a balance that works for you and your child. www.ourladyoftheassumption.co.uk 

 

We will also be holding a group zoom session, each Wednesday morning at 10am, it will be lovely for the children to see their friends and their teachers. (The zoom invite will be sent nearer the time.) We will have a little chat followed by a song, a story or a game. The session should last approximately 15-20 mins. Keeping in touch will hopefully make it easier for your child to return to nursery when the time comes.

 

If you have any questions or concerns the best way to contact us is by using this email:

nursery@ourlady-pri.liverpool.sch.uk

and we will reply as soon as possible. 

 

Take care, 

 

Mrs Davies (BoW Teacher & Deputy Head) & Mrs Wakefield (EoW Teacher & EYFS Lead).

Thursday 15th October -

End of the Week bubble closure.

 

Hello, how did you get on yesterday? I’d love to see your family pictures.

Today, your job is to use your real-life family members and put them in order from tallest to shortest. When you’ve done this, ask your grown-up to help you find objects from around the house to put in size order. There are some examples below.
Grown-ups, model lots of mathematical language: tall, taller, tallest, short, shorter, shortest, big, bigger, biggest, small, smaller, smallest.

 

Goldilocks and the Three Bears is the perfect story to help us learn about size and ordering. Follow the link below to watch the story on YouTube, then follow the next link to sing the Goldilocks song together. Encourage your child to join in with the actions for ‘big’ (stretching their arms as tall as possible), ‘small’ and ‘tiny’.
Hope you all have a fun day, let me know how you get on later.

Mrs Wakefield ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป‍โ™€๏ธ

Look at the families in the pictures below, point out similarities and differences with your child. 
Every family is different and unique but the one thing that is the same is the LOVE we have for the people in our family๐Ÿ’›

Ideas to try at home: What the Ladybird Heard.

Listen to the story read by the author, Julia Donaldson. Use the counting and sorting activities on Twinkl. In your garden or out on your walk, have a look to see if you can find any ladybirds (or any other bugs), try to take a photo to show your teachers, we would love to see what you find! 
Ask your child to retell the story to you, talk about what happens in the ‘beginning’, ‘middle’ and ‘end’ of the story. Talk about the characters and the story setting. Most importantly, have fun!
