Nursery School Closure
Here is the link to a page on Liverpool City Council’s website about new childcare hubs which are opening on Monday
Covid 19 parenting Blog – This blog is written by LCC, the Early Help Team and has contributions from citywide partner organisations. This has some great tips and tricks on support available to you, home learning ideas, playing together, and most importantly managing your own and your children’s well being through a difficult and uncertain time such as this.
Here is a timetable that we have found that you could use to help your children stick to some routine. There are some ideas of activities that you can do for each slot and having this should allow you some space to work yourself also.
To help your child continue with their learning as best as possible during this time we have set this page up with useful links, hints and tips that you can use at home with your children.
We have been looking at the topic of spring and growth and focusing on our numbers 0-10 and 2D shapes. Below are useful websites and ideas to help your child’s learning.
- Spring hunt – looking for spring objects and signs of spring.
- Observe bugs in the garden and draw what you can find – find out the minibeasts names using the internet or a book.
- Plant seeds in pots and watch them grow.
- Read traditional tales and recreate the story through role play.
- Number/shape hunt – hide shapes/numbers around the house and go on a hunt to find them.
- Go out in the garden and draw pictures of what you can see at spring time eg, butterflies/caterpillars/sunshine.
- Practice writing your name.
