Wrens - Foundation Unit - Miss Slater

Wrens (Foundation Unit) – Melloney Slater – 2020-2021

Please follow your child's interests in their play during home learning time however there are some activity ideas below which you can choose from.

If you would like to follow the ideas below, please choose one phase 1 phonics activity daily. Young children benefit from repeating an activity to build familiarity and confidence so you may wish to complete the same activity together for several days in a row. 

There are also a variety of activities and ideas covering all seven areas of our learning and development in Early Years. All are linked to the theme of a nursery rhyme. Please listen to and sing the nursery rhyme together then choose a linked activity, or a few activities which you think your child would enjoy. You could use the themes and ideas of each nursery rhyme activity page to base your week's activities around. 

If you would like to share your child's playing and learning with us, please email 

Merry Christmas!

We have been practicing our singing and learnt and recorded a song for you. It was filmed over several sessions to make sure everyone got a chance to be in it. Hope you enjoy it!

Forest School (Autumn 2) Our 'Stick'-y Learning! We had a visit from Stick Man then went on a hunt to find his friends and family. Can you find our 'Grandpa Stick' in the photos below? We played at Stick Man's 'family tree' and made some more stick friends. We've used a peeler to whittle sticks and have made 'jingle sticks' for Christmas!

Forest School - We have enjoyed listening to the story Leaf Man. Miss Slater said he was hiding somewhere at school so we predicted where he might be, then went on a Leaf Man hunt! He was hiding up in the tree! We kicked crunchy leaves, made our own leaf people and even made Leaf Man a leaf sandwich to enjoy.
