WELCOME TO HOME LEARNING FOR NURSERY AND RECEPTION
Whilst our school is closed, our teachers will be setting home learning tasks on a weekly basis.
 
This weeks tasks are set out below. You may want your child to record their work in the exercise book that was sent home. 
 
Remember... you don't have to complete all of the tasks in one day! They are meant to be done over the week.  
 
Happy learning! 
HOME LEARNING TASKS: WEEK 1, 2 AND EASTER ACTIVITIES
EASTER HOLIDAY ACTIVITIES FOR NURSERY AND RECEPTION
 
We will not be sending home learning out this week, in what would have been the second week of our Easter holidays, because by now, you and your children will deserve a break from it all. Feel free to delve into the fun Easter activities below if you wish, but there is no pressure to complete these tasks. Happy Easter to you and your family from the Templemoor Team.

WHAT'S NEW THIS WEEK (WB: 6TH APRIL 2020)
WE ARE ADVENTURERS DAILY CHALLENGE

The We Are Adventurers Team, who work with us in school, have produced daily outdoor learning challenges that can be done in the garden to help children engage with nature. Each session comes with some additional learning ideas so that you can build on what the children have learnt.Please note that just like at school, the activities will require adult supervision. Some activities are more suitable for older children.
