This week we are basing our learning on spiders! There are some ideas to make models and find out about some of them on the activities sheet. If you don't particulary like spiders, you can adapt the activities to another invertebrate! Why not get to know them better - use the internet to find out how many insects they eat, that would otherwise bite us! Did you know some spiders are pink?....
Don't forget there are some links to online games and sites under the 'home learning links' star that you need a login code - just drop me an email if you have not got yours yet.
If someone in your family has English as an additional language, don't forget to look for support on the web page 'Useful links to home learning' for more resources.
Meanwhile, try not to worry about your child's progress - everyone across the country is affected in the same way. Look on the time as a bonus, extra time to spend with your child, learning together, creating memories and building deeper relationships. Have fun playing together - I shall look forward to hearing all about your adventures when we get back together again soon.

Nursery 'Book at Bedtime' was being developed to support children at home, as there is a strong link between the number of books children experience and long term expectations. Our current situation has interrupted this, however, it is still possible to listen to them. The stories at the bottom were designed to be listened to, along with the book borrowed from nursery. Alas, the books are still in nursery waiting for our return! Meanwhile, you can listen to them and imagine the pictures, or you may have your own copies at home you can use. The new stories at the top of the list are now designed to listen to without the book - a 'told' story rather than one supported with the book or props. This is an area of learning we focus on at this time in the year.
Either way, listen and enjoy and Good Night, sleep well!
We are a 29 place Nursery, open from 8.55am to 11:55am. Clarendon Nursery welcomes children in the term after their third birthday and is situated at the bottom of the school playground. Our Nursery teacher is Mrs Riordan and Mrs Wallis and Mrs Matthews are our teaching assistants.
The Nursery provides a safe, secure, happy and stimulating environment and follows the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. Outside, Clarendon Nursery has a large fully enclosed outdoor area with lots of exciting play equipment and activities. In Nursery, we learn through purposeful play and exploration. We plan a range of play activities to help our children progress in each of the areas of learning and development.
