Dear Parents,

I have attached links for  this week's offline learning ideas. These have been created for children who have no access to computers at home, do not have a printer or for those who would like some time away from computer learning. They are all practical activities that can be carried out. This can be done instead of or as well as the online learning platform websites that were emailed to you last week. 

This weeks story Biscuit Bear.  I have added extra activities this week. 

Also on our school website the teachers have added videos to show the learning which happens in Maths throughout the school. 

It would be lovely if the children could then send a photo or attachment of their work produced to us by our e-mail addresses. This, however, is not an obligation.

 Last week it was lovely to hear from so many of you! 

If you have any questions about this, please e-mail.

Kind Regards and hope you have a wonderful week,

There are three phonic sessions to the learning portal this week and they can be accessed with the links below or through the Gloucester Road home learning website. 

 

This weeks story is No Dinner! Which we all enjoy! I have added extra activities this week.

Dear Parents,

This can be done instead of or as well as the online learning platform websites that were emailed to you last week. 

 I have also added two phonic sessions to the learning portal this week and they can be accessed with the links below or through the Gloucester Road home learning website. 

I have also added two maths activities that you may like to try at home;

  • Make patterns with objects, colouring pencils, paint or Play-Doh, and build structures with Lego or boxes.
  • Go on a shape hunt. How many circles, squares, rectangles or triangles can your child find? Are they 2D or 3D? Try getting them to look for patterns and symmetry.

 

It would be lovely if the children could then send a photo or attachment of their work produced to us by our e-mail addresses. This, however, is not an obligation.

 

If you have any questions about this, please e-mail.

 

Kind Regards and hope you have a wonderful week,

To our lovely reception and nursery children, 

I hope that you and your families are keeping well at this time. 

We cannot all be together because of the virus which means we need to keep our distance as much as possible. I am very sad that I can no longer teach you until this is all over. 

However, we have had so many exciting moments already at school. 

Take care and remember to keep your distance from each other as much as possible. 

Love 

Miss Davis and the EYFS Team

Dear Parents of reception and nursery children, 

I firstly hope that you are all keeping well in this unprecedented time of challenge and change. 

Last week you all got sent your children's logins for various learning platforms. I have also included as much as possible login in for Oxford Owl. I hope that you will find this very helpful. 

I know that libraries across the country have closed with immediate effect but you can still enjoy stories at home with your children by using Cbeebies Bedtime Stories or share books that you have at home. Oldies and classics can be our favourites! Repeating stories can be hugely beneficial for our child or children. Also there is a free 30 day trial on Audible www.audible.co.uk. Children can listen to their stories and use their imagination. 

Some of our stories that we have learnt this year are; 

  • The Three Little Pigs 
  • The Gigantic Turnip 
  • No Dinner 
  • We're Going on a Bear Hunt
  • Goldilocks and the Three Bears 
  • Farmer Duck 
  • Chinese New Year 
  • Handa's Surprise 
  • Knuffle Bunny 

Many of the stories that we have covered during this year will be on Twinkl. There are PowerPoints and other exciting resources.

I also resent the logins for Numerbots and I can see that many of your children have used this. I am impressed by how many points your children have accumulated over the last few days. There are also lots of games that you can play that does not involve the internet such as snap, dominoes and any board games. 

It has been a pleasure so far to teach your children so I hope that we can all be back together soon as possible. 

Our Facebook page, Twitter and Instagram will be open for you to communicate if you wish to or have any questions. 

Hope to see all very soon and take care 

Miss Shelley Davis 

 

 

Welcome to Gloucester Road Nursery and Primary School's Early Years Foundation Stage Unit. 

The EYFS Team are Miss Davis, Miss Bruton-Tranter, Mrs Davage, Mrs Steel, Mrs Bray, Mrs Patel and Miss Wiltshire.

 

The Unit comprises of Nursery and Reception. We welcome pupils from 2 years 9 months up until the end of the Reception year. Here is our New Starter Welcome Pack we give to parents in September. 

Children in our Unit are planned for through challenge learning produced by the key person ensuring next steps are achieved. We use Development Matters to ensure the breadth of learning is met. Although we are an amalgamated unit, there are times the children will be separate so the key person can work on group or individual activities. 

Areas of learning include Literacy, Maths, Personal, Social and Emotional Development, PE and Dance and Creative Development and Knowledge and Understanding of the World.

Parents sharing reading books: Each day the children can chose another book to share with you at home. It was lovely to read all the comments about the stories. 

Phonics: The children will have a fast paced introduction to phonics through the Sound Write scheme where they will learn four sounds a week. The children will bring sound sheets home so they can continue the learning process at home and learn the correct formation of each of the sounds. Please support us by practising at home as this provides great consistency for the children in our class. Letter homework will be given to the children on a Monday and should be returned by Thursday.

Maths homework will also be handed out to children on a Thursday.

Please can all Reception Children’s PE kits be in school and labelled.

Please feel free to talk to any members of the staff at the beginning or end of the day if you have any worries. We look forward to working with you this year.

Thank you for your continued support.
