There is a Government link that we feel would be useful if you would like to access it. It gives some tips of how to help your children learn at home! https://www.gov.uk/guidance/help-children-aged-2-to-4-to-learn-at-home-during-coronavirus-covid-19
Do keep posting on Tapestry, it's great to see what you have been up to!
Hope you are all well, had a lovely Easter weekend and are enjoying spending time at home with your families! We have added some new activity sheets and workbooks onto the Activity Files section for you to have a go at some pencil and cutting control. Make sure to upload a picture to Tapestry if you do!

The Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum
The Early Years Foundation Stage is the curriculum covering children’s development form birth until the end of the Reception year. We support children to make their own play choices where practitioners join in with children’s play and observe their interests to extend learning. Children also take part in adult led activities to help develop specific skills, to provide new learning experiences and to inspire new interests. The EYFS is made up of seven areas of learning and development. These are all related to one another but divided into Prime and Specific Areas.
|Personal, Social and Emotional Development||
|Communication and Language||
This area involves providing opportunities for young children to be active and
interactive; developing their co-ordination, control, and movement. Children must also be helped to understand the importance of physical activity and to make healthy choices in relation to food
|Understanding the World||
Expressive Arts and Design
Dressing and Clothing
We encourage children in Nursery to develop their self-help skills. To support children’s independence with toileting, dressing and undressing they should wear clothes and shoes they can easily pull on and off. Clothes should also be comfortable and practical. It is essential to make sure your child has the correct clothes and footwear to play outside in all weathers.
- A set of spare clothes
- Baby wipes
- Water bottle
- Waterproof coat
- Wellies (these can be left next to your child’s peg)
- Sun hat and sun cream
Please label your child’s clothing, wellies and water bottle.
