New EYFS 2020

Welcome to the Nursery and Reception new starters page for September 2020

 

This page is for the children who will be starting in Nursery or Reception in September 2020. We are so sorry we have been unable to meet you and your children before they start school but we would like to help you to prepare your child for school. 

 

Please find lots of ideas on this page that you could do with your child over the summer, sing some nursery rhymes, watch the phonics videos, and practice counting. You will also find videos of their new teacher and new classrooms. You can show these to your child to introduce them to their new teacher and our new faces will become familiar to them.  

 

If you have any questions or worries, please feel free to email mrs.fogg@greenfield.tameside.sch.uk. Also, use this email to send any pictures of your child completing these activities. 

 

 

Here is a warm welcome from our Executive Principal, Mrs Eccles

To help your child develop their independence, get them used to doing the following at home:

 

Going to the toilet and wiping their bottom on their own – simple clothing like elasticated waistbands will help your child to get their clothes on and off much easier 

 

Cutting food using a knife and fork and eating their food with others - encourage your child to take part in family meals. 

 

Tidying up their toys and giving them responsibilities around the house will help them to become more independent.

 

Helping them to recognise their name in writing and to consistently respond to it verbally

 

Getting dressed independently every day – practise closing buttons, putting on socks and shoes on the right feet, putting on their own coat and zipping it up. 

 

Here you will find daily routine cards and a story to share with your child to encourage them to become independent with dressing themselves at home ready for getting changed at school.

Talking to your child and encouraging them to express their views is a great way to help them to become independent. It allows your children to express their likes, dislikes and share their opinions and ask questions. 

There are plenty of activities on the BBC website to help you with developmental activities with your child. 

You can also find lots of nursery rhymes, number activities and phonics games to help to prepare your child for Nursery and Reception. 

 

Reading stories to your child is very important as it helps your child to develop their imagination and they can begin to recognise words and sounds.
