Nursery Isolation Work

Caterpillars (Nursery) Self-Isolation Home Learning 

 

On this page you will find some activities for Nursery pupils (Caterpillar Class) that you can complete at home during the self isolation from Monday 16th November. You can email any photographs of your home learning to:

caterpillars20@oakridge.bucks.sch.uk 

 

Caterpillars are due to return to school on Wednesday 25th November. We look forward to seeing you back in school, at your usual time, on this day. Remember - If your child has been asked to self isolate they MUST stay at home and not go out to any public places until this date. 

 

Staff from Caterpillars would like to see all pupils online, twice a day - Once for a morning 'Hello' at 8:50am and again for an afternoon 'Story Time' at 14:35. Please follow 'Zoom' links the office send you to access these. You will need to keep a check on your emails.

 

Throughout the week commencing 16th November nursery staff will still be conducting online zoom 'Parents Consultation Meetings'. Please remember to sign up for a slot as soon as you can. We look forward to talking with parents then. Please ensure you join your parents meeting on zoom promptly, you will have 15 minutes to talk with staff.

 

Please have a look at the suggested daily timetable for working with your child at home:

Home Learning Activities

Below you will find a PowerPoint all about the 'Three Little Pigs' story. We shared this story in our 'NELI' Learning time earlier this term so it should be familiar to pupils. 

Please help your child to work their way through the activities in this power point presentation during the time we are in self isolation.

Phonics Activities

We have a phonics session every day in school and have been learning to 'tune in' to sounds, use out bodies to make percussion, practise the different sounds our voices can make, develop listening skills and learn the names of some musical instruments and find out about the noises they make. We have also been learning nursery rhymes; singing then loud and quiet, fast and slow. You could practise some of these activities at home.

There are also some links below, suitable to support phonics for nursery children...

Mindfulness for little people:

With everything going on in the world and the need for us to be caring for our children's mental health more than ever (Especially when they are stuck inside during self isolation) we have found a few activities that may help:
