Hi Nursery and parents. 

I hope you are all ok and managing to stay well.  I have included some suggestions for home learning activities that you may wish to do with your children.  Try to complete them if you can, but I am well aware that trying to juggle working from home with home schooling and looking after the family can be difficult. 

I will be working with the Nursery children in school this morning, but can be contacted via class dojo.  As always, I will do my best to help.


Kind Regards,


Mr Leese

Phonics Sounds - How many do you know?

We learned some of our sounds before Christmas. How many can you remember? Sing the song to remind yourself.



At school tomorrow we will be making our own gingerbread men.  The link to the recipe is below.  You may wish to have a go at some baking at home, but I realise that it may be difficult to shop for ingredients at the moment.  Please send any pictures of your baked creations to me on dojo to share with the children in class.  Have fun.
