Welcome to the Nursery's class page
Home Learning

Below are some activities and suggestions that may be useful in the coming weeks. I will be updating this website with different activities and checking in twice a week. So please keep visiting. If there is anything your child would like to share with me I would love to hear about what the children are doing. Please feel free to email me at clarkej@primroselane.leeds.sch.uk. All new information will be added to the bottom of the page, please take a look.

For the next two weeks there will be phonics training for the children. The children going up to Reception were due to start Set 1 phonics in Read Write Inc. These videos will be a good introduction to the concept and help parents understand it too by the person that created it. The website on YouTube is: Set 1 Phonics. The times are at 9:30 daily and 12:30. These videos will not be available on demand.

The letter-join is a very good website for the children's fine motor skills and will work with the login provided on the download document. The pattern and fun tabs are the best for the Nursery children and should work on tablets. I would recommend turning the sound down/off on the fun tab, that can be quite a noisy one. When you log in click on the Reception tab.

Play Dough
Attached is a link for a recipe for play dough. In my experience this is the easiest and cleanest way to make it. Play dough is a fantastic way of building up a child's finger strength and wonderful to help those pre-writing skills.

Online Activities
Please email clarkej@primroselane.leeds.sch.uk for a login for purple mash. It is a fantastic resourse and your child has a personal login. Can be used on laptops, desktops and tablets.

Good morning! It's a week and a half since the start of home schooling and I hope you have all had a lovely time. Thank you for all the pictures. It is lovely to see all the learning the children are still doing and the different projects they have undertaken. I hope you have a fantastic week and keep sending me photos of what you're doing and I can add it to a class gallery. Then you can see what fun your friends have been doing too!

Mr Clarke

I have found a Youtube playlist of all the relevant episodes of Numberblocks for the nursery children. The episodes on the iPlayer are often coming off and on and on the official YouTube channels it is more snippets of episodes stitched together.
The link to the playlist is:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zjan6evga7g&list=PLHltW_WBeq2QoCR7emLpw55e5H3hYiTe2

Numberblocks is a fantastic way for the children to get a better understanding of what numbers mean and how we can use them. It is even more fantastic if you can embed each concept is to do activities around the specific episodes. I have used this website to help plan lessons around each episode and it has been very useful in helping me understand what each child can learn from it. https://www.ncetm.org.uk/resources/52060.

Please try to make the activities as physical as possible using real objects and games. As always please email me any of your Numberblocks work, I'd love to see it!
I have found this resource to be useful for planning maths activities. It is more aimed at Reception aged children but I think there is still a lot of fun to be had with it. There is a video and a PDF file that goes with each of the ten activities. The link is:

The gallery is now up and running. Please have a look at what your friends are doing and if you would like to send some photos to me to upload please send them to clarkej@primroselane.leeds.sch.uk.
