Here is the remote learning for Nursery this week. We are missing you very much and would love to see all of your hard work! Please email any photographs or pieces of work to email@example.com.
‘I Spy’ is a great way to develop your child’s language and comprehension skills, as it encourages them to look carefully at an image, think about what they can see and then talk about it too.
For younger children, a great way to play ‘I Spy’ is to describe something from the picture, rather than using the initial sound. For example, ‘I Spy with my little eye…something that is pink and makes an oink! sound’ – ‘A Pig!’
Choose one of the ‘I Spy’ games below and let us know what you think!
One of the main areas in the EYFS curriculum is to support children in their ability to listen and participate in conversations. Listening is a skill that needs to be taught to young children, so that they are able to consider the views of others’, listen to stories and share their own thoughts and ideas too.
The development of listening and attention skills is essential to promote a child’s understanding and use of language. Listening and attention skills also help a child to function properly in society as they aid their social development, Literacy and comprehension skills as well as their communication and language development.

Nursery rhymes provide bite-sized learning opportunities for young children to develop key developmental skills and can often be the trigger for hours of creative and open-ended play. They are a powerful learning source in early literacy and enable children to become interested in the rhythm and patterns of language.
“Experts in literacy and child development have discovered that if children know eight nursery rhymes by heart by the time they’re four years old, they’re usually among the best readers by the time they’re eight. -”
