It has been a very strange week not seeing you in school. I hope you have been making memories with your families and enjoying some time in the sunshine. I am missing you all but I know that you have been working very hard on your Home Learning activities.
Thank you to the parents/carers that emailed photographs of your learning to our school email address Latchford_Primary@warrington.gov.uk – it has been so nice to see them on our new school facebook page too! (Latchford St James CE Primary) Keep them coming and join our school page if you haven’t already!

Stay safe and keep smiling
Nursery Home Learning – Week 2
|Speaking and Listening
To develop vocabulary around different sounds log onto www.phonicsplay.co.uk
If you go to phase 1 and the game sound starters this will have the resources needed to complete this game.
Exercise and sleep contribute to a healthy lifestyle. Go for a walk or try to do some laps of the garden to keep us fit and healthy! Can your child explain what happens to their heartbeat after exercise?
Share the story Dear Zoo, if you do not have a copy you can view it by using the link below.
Can your child remember each animal that is in the story?
This half term we are focusing on our name writing. Please practise writing letters from your child’s name to support your child in becoming independent in their name writing. If they are finding this difficult you can practise one or two letters from their name until they are secure.
Use the number mat attached to play fastest finger using numbers to 10. Say ‘fastest finger’ followed by a number and your child is to find and touch the number. If they are secure to 10 please use the numbers to 20 mat.
|Shape, Space and Measure
Find a stick in the garden. Can you find a shorter stick and a longer stick and order them according to size?
|Understanding the World
Can you find any interesting objects in the garden? Come together to discuss what you have found. What colour are the leaves?
|Expressive Art and Design
Make an animal mask of a character from the story ‘Dear Zoo’. Can your child make matching animal sounds?
Hello boys and girls, I hope you are enjoying the sunshine and are able to get some fresh air out in your gardens. I have been thinking of you all lots and I hope you are enjoying your Home Learning activities for this week.
Parents/Carers I’m sure you are all doing a fantastic job of helping your child at home with their Home Learning activities. This is a challenging time for us all, please do not worry if you do not manage to complete ALL of the activities on this page each week. Stay strong and keep safe 🙂
I have found another fantastic resource to help develop fine motor control. All you need is some playdough! Shonette Bason (An inspirational EYFS specialist) is running dough disco sessions at 9.30am each morning. All you have to do is subscribe to her YouTube channel ‘Spread The Happiness TV Channel’. This is completely free and will help to develop those muscles in your child’s fingers and support their pre-writing skills. It is also lots of fun – we do this in Nursery so I am sure the children will enjoy participating in it at home.
Do not worry if you don’t have any playdough at home. I will post a link for the recipe below so you can make some!
If playdough isn’t your thing, the same YouTube channel is live at 1pm each day to provide Play Based Story Challenge which also sounds like great fun and will help to develop your child’s learning and development.
Remember to keep checking our class page for updates and support with Home Learning.
Lots of love
It is important to stay active and keep fit and healthy whilst staying indoors, if you haven’t already accessed P.E with Joe here is how you can join the nation in daily P.E lessons.
Joe Wicks will be teaching daily P.E lessons at 9.00am each weekday. These can be found by searching for Joe’s YouTube channel ‘The Body Coach TV’. These P.E lessons are free and I will be joining in with them at home too!
Stay safe, enjoy your home learning activities and keep smiling
