Ideas for Sharing Learning at Home


If your child would like to bring it in to school to share, we would love to see it.

Nursery and EYFS SEND

Why do you love me so much?

  • Bring into nursery a picture of your child when they were a baby.
  • Talk to your child about who lives in their house and who is in their family.
  • When walking around the local environment talk about the different types of houses you can see eg bungalows, flats, houses and shops.
  • Encourage your child to draw a picture of themselves to share at school.

Why do squirrels hide their nuts?

  • Talk about Autumn – what happens during this time of the year?
