Nursery

Hi Nursery and Parents,

I hope you are all well and keeping safe! It’s been lovely to speak to so many of you on the phone (I’ll be calling again on Friday 29th!) To all the children who have sent me some super work over email thank you so much! It has put a huge smile on my face! Keep sending them…

roundthorn@focus-trust.co.uk

I’ve updated the home learning here for you again but please don’t forget to check our blog too.

There’s a new challenge for you everyday and you can even comment on the link to show us the super work you have done!

You can also send me a letter or a picture in the post. Send it to:

Coppice Primary Academy,

Burlington Ave,

Oldham OL8 1AP

We could take a picture and put it on our blog! You might inspire someone to do something similar!

I am missing every single one of you very much and I cant wait to see you soon! Keep safe and enjoy the time together.

Activities that don’t need the internet

 

  • Write your name
  • Draw a picture – Ask a grown up take a photo of your picture and it on our blog or email it to our school email. Maybe you could put a stamp on it and post it to us.
  • Read lots of stories! Talk about the pictures in the story. What do you think is going to happen next? Use a page in the story and play iSpy. Use the pictures to tell your own story.
  • Help your parents with the shopping list, Can you draw a picture of the things you might need?
  • Sort the coins in your mum’s purse or in your piggy bank.
  • Play shop and use your toys or food in the cupboard to sell to you family.
  • Set up an obstacle course in your garden.
  • Go for a walk and see which letters or numbers you can find in the environment
  • Do lots of counting, you could play hide and seek.
  • Sing lots of songs- 10 in the bed, 5 little speckled frogs, 5 cheeky monkeys.
  • Use empty bottles to make skittles
  • Make a home for an animal.

There are lots more ideas like this on our blog… There are new ones added everyday!
