Nursery

 

We hope that your first week of Home School has been a success. This is proving to be a time of uncertainty and anxiety for many children as their weekly routine becomes greatly altered. The nursery team thought that it would be nice to ask all families to send up to 2 photos each week of your home school successes which we will then upload to this nursery page at the end of each week.  This would be a good way to keep the children connected to their classmates and show them that  life continues much as before, just in a different setting. We hope that the children will take comfort and enjoyment from sharing their weekly experiences and seeing what their friends have been up to. 
 
If you would like to share 2 photos of your child's home school experience this week please send your photos via email to nursery@stjosephs.ealing.sch.uk
We are limiting each child to 2 photos as we have almost 50 children in the year group. We will upload the photos at the end of each week.

Ants on the Apple.mp4

Phonics song we use at the moment. We sing 'Ian' not "Indian" for 'i'. We make up a story to go with each sound using a selection of objects beginning with each sound, for instance: teapot, table, .... and say: Once there was a tiger who climbed the table and drank all the tea in the teapot... until we arrive at a phrase from the phonics song: "tiger on tiptoes" We focus on letter SOUNDS and not NAMES, e.g. we say /sssss/ and not /es/ or /ah.../as if at the doctors and not /ei/. Sound sequence: s, a, t, p, i, n, m, d, g, o, c, k, ck, e, u, r, h, b, f, ff, l, ll, ss. Once we have mastered those sounds, as well as blending and segmenting them in simple three letter words such as 'cat', 'dog', 'mum', etc. we might introduce the remaining letter sounds in the alphabet and we will use a different phonics song. Please do not worry if your child does not know the letter sounds yet. They will have plenty of opportunities to learn them this academic year and also in Reception.

Articulation of Phonemes

A useful video clip showing the correct 'pure' pronounciation of phonemes (units of sound).

Cued Articulation, Jane Passy - summary of all sounds and handsigns

A brief summary of almost all Cued Articulation hand signs as written and designed by Jane Passy - we used the hand signs to help children remember the sounds - the hand signs draw the children's attention to the place (labial, glottal sounds...) and manner of articulation (plosives, fricatives...) of each sound.

Photos of our learning to discuss with your child.
The photos below show our learning about growing plants and about different occupations; children explore a play hospital and one of our mums talks to the children about her career of an opera singer, which was truly an amazing and inspiring presentation! There are also photos of children learning prepositions with a fun song, practicing their numerals and phonics.

The highlight of the week was our trip to church. We had learnt about baptism as a welcome to God's family. At church, Father Cristiano showed us how to baptize a baby with holy water and explained the importance of baptism. Thank you to Father Cristiano and to all the parents who very kindly helped us look after the children during our trip.

This autumn we went on nature walks and found different colour and shape leaves, which we explored and used to create artwork. We learnt about Remembrance Day and we made poppies. In PE, we went for a jog along the running track and played stop-and-go games and music and movement activities to practice listening and following instructions as well as running safely.  We learnt to form horizontal, vertical and circular lines on large-scale with our whole arms and also using fine-motor movements. We explored a range of mark-making opportunities - drawing in the sand, shaving foam, on a large sheet of paper on the floor, etc. We sang number rhymes with props. We started playdough disco as a settling in activity first thing in the morning - to work on our hand muscles. In RE, we learnt about baptism.

This week we learnt about the Jewish festival of Hanukkah. We had a go at spinning dreidels and putting the candles on a menorah. We grated potatoes and we are yet to taste the latkes after half term - it was a really busy week. In the pictures, you can also see us going on listening walks and playing circle games to help us remember one another's names. 

 

Have a lovely break!
