Welcome to Edwards Nursery Unit
Remote Learning Online
Monday 18th January
Hello everyone, welcome to week 2 remote learning online. I have created some links I hope you will enjoy online this week. Thank you to everyone who has sent me photos. They really have made me smile and brightened my week! Please continue to send me a photo (or more if you wish) each week, thank you.
Snowmen at Night
We are learning about "patterns." You can play this game at level 1, to practise making a pattern with two repeating items.
During our Wake and Shake sessions in Nursery "Sticky Kids" songs are our favourite. Get up and moving to one of our favourite songs "Let's go walking." Listen carefully to the words, follow the instructions and have fun.
Good-bye for now everyone! I hope you enjoy all your activities. Remember to send me a photo or photos. You are welcome to keep the winter threading activity and continue to practise at home. I would love you to return your colouring in and scissor skills work next Monday. I would love to see what you have done.
Have fun and keep safe

Look at us!
Going out on the bikes, trikes, scooters and wheeled vehicles will develop our leg muscles and strengthen our bones. We are improving our stamina, co-ordination and balance. We are having lots of fun while we do this important work!

Our topic is Dear Zoo
Can you join in, saying the words?
We have been counting to 5 in Nursery. We enjoy singing counting songs and our new favourite is "Alice the Camel has 5 Humps" You can practise counting at home too.
Have you ever wondered why we do not focus on writing when your child embarks on their Nursery year?
Look at the differences between a typical younger child's hand (left) and an older child's hand (right). Their hands (and brains) are still developing and are not fully formed. So what should they be doing to support this? PLAY -playdough, building towers, cutting, gluing, playing outside, digging in sand, sensory play, threading, puzzles, throwing balls etc... All of these things help develop fine motor skills, co-ordinating the small muscles in our hands and fingers with our eyes.
Have a look at us developing our fine motor skills...
