Arden Grove Infant

& Nursery School

Hello from Arden Grove...

An update...

Hello! I know this has been a very different and realistically (at times) challenging few weeks. I hope that despite the very different world we are currently living in, you are finding some positives and have been able to enjoy the amazingly, warm and sunny Easter weather, with today being the first exception!
 
We now know we have at least a further 3 weeks of working differently and so Year 1 and Year 2 will send out an app message (after this one) to outline how they will share online learning from Monday onwards.  Reception and Nursery will continue to do their practical, weekly activities linked to stories and maths and with support for letter formation. Nursery will start to introduce some letter sounds so please remember to log on regularly during the week and don't forget to share the lovely things you are doing at home. 
 
Please know that we want the activities and learning ideas, we send home, to be supportive and helpful to you. We do appreciate some of you might feel pressure to do these and we do not want you to feel this way. We also know that it can be much more challenging for you to engage your children to do some of these tasks at home so please don't feel you need to work through everything, every day. We are all finding our way at a very difficult time and so you must use these resources in a way that works for your family. We know lots of you are being incredibly creative and doing lots of practical things. The children will be thriving on these 'hands on' activities and most importantly having this time with their families. If you have any worries or queries about online learning just email the office and we can get in contact with you.
 
At times like this the most important thing is making sure you and your family find the best way to be happy and stay safe and well. We will keep you updated with any key information. When we receive useful updates linked to safeguarding or information regarding other agencies that might be helpful, we will share these on the app. Take care and let's hope we see each other soon.
