We can't wait for you to join our Nursery!
Miss Neal and Mrs Evans would like to welcome you to the Afternoon Nursery page!
There are lots of games and activities you can do with your child to have fun together and get them developing important skills, such as speaking and listening and developing eye-hand co-ordination.
Here are some fun learning ideas for you to try at home:
Children enjoy exploring and experimenting with language and it helps them to learn new words and their meanings and also to listen to the sounds that make those words. So sing, rhyme, shout, whisper, rap and dance to the beat!
Give your child lots of opportunities to draw and paint. This is not only fun, but also can help to develop eye-hand coordination and control.
Let them experiment with lots of different materials – paint brushes with a range of widths, pencils, crayons, chalks and finger paint. You could try playing music when they paint and draw as this can help to create a relaxing environment.
- Use modelling clay to get creative and develop fine motor skills.
- Threading beads, macaroni or cotton reels on wool or string can help with eye-hand co-ordination and control.
- Joining the dots and drawing paths through simple mazes are not only fun but are a great way to develop eye-hand coordination and pen control.
- Enjoy jigsaws together and chat about finding the right pieces!
Have fun reading books of all kinds to your child: picture, words and pictures, pop up, information and poetry.
On Thursday 3rd March we will celebrating World Book Day. Children can dress up as their favourite book or nursery rhyme character if they wish. We will be taking part in a number of activities during the afternoon. Your child can bring into Nursery their favourite book to share with us. (Please write your child's name on it clearly).
