Talk to your child about nursery. What do they like doing at nursery? What is their favourite thing to play with? Do they like having snack or dinner?
Can they tell you what happens at snack time or dinner time? What are the names of their new friends (adults or children)?
Please write down what your child says in English or in their first language and email me their replies to [email protected]
We would love to know their answers to these questions and will print out your answers and put them into your child’s learning journey.
More ideas for learning at home…
All 3 and 4 year olds in England (and at our school, children turning 3 in that term) are entitled to 15 hours of free early education or childcare a week.
Options for your 15 hours of nursery child care:
Option 1: 5 mornings a week 8.45-11.45 am
Option 2: 5 afternoons a week 12.30-3.30 pm
Option 3: Mix and match mornings and afternoons, for example 3 mornings, 2 afternoons
Option 4: Extending a morning or afternoon session with lunchtime childcare (11.45am – 12.30pm). If your child attends nursery in a morning they can stay for lunch and then go home at 12.30pm. The cost for this would be £2.00 and your child could bring a packed lunch from home or pay a further £2.30 to buy a school dinner. This option is also available for children to arrive at 11.45am and have dinner at nursery before the afternoon session.
Option 5: 2½ Full days. Use 1 or 2 full days and the rest of the 15 hours as half days e.g. All day Monday, Tuesday morning, Wednesday morning, Thursday afternoon; or all day Wednesday and Thursday and then Friday morning. The full day sessions will be from 8.45am-3.30pm (6 hours, 45 minutes,so the maximum would be 2 full days and then a half day). Full day sessions include lunch provision.
Option 6: Extending any nurserysessions with breakfast childcare. If your child wanted to attend earlier than 8.45am, they would have to pay to attend the breakfast club any time between 7.45-8.45am. (Costs £3 7.45-8.15 or £2 8.15-8.45) Or extending the full day care with after school club, available until 5.30 pm. (Costs £4 3.30-4.30 or £8 3.30-5.30)
