Home Learning Ideas

Not all of our Willows community have English as their first language, taking this into consideration we believe it is really important for the children to learn about the communities and traditions native to their families. Below there is a page with lots of links for traditional stories and songs in different languages, enjoy!

Songs and Stories

 

Week Commencing 11th January – Weather

This week we have been learning all about the weather! The children have talked about all the different kinds of weather we have – rainy, frosty, sunny….and how it can quickly change from one to the other. See if you can sing-along to our weather song, and don’t forget the actions!

Signing

In Willows, we often use hand signs along with our words in order to help the children understand what is being said and to teach them new words. See if you can practice some of these at home!

Welly Walk

Our annual welly walk was held at the start of November, with all Willows children taking part to walk around the big field, raising money for Evesham Nursery School. There were lots of things to spot on the walks and luckily it stayed dry! Well done Willows!

Bonfire Activities

Willows had lots of fun at the start of November to celebrate Bonfire night. The children got creative, making firework scenes out of glitter, paint, and chalk and then enjoyed watching sparklers being lit. To top it off, everyone enjoyed jacket potatoes, popcorn and marshmallows!
