Dear Children, Parents and Carers,

I miss you all and will be keeping busy trying to find additional ideas/ fun activities for you to try at home with your child(ren). Check out the links below...
 
Best wishes,
Mr. Chan & Mrs. Trevaskus 

Nursery Teacher: Mr Chun-Sun Chan

The Nursery and Foundation Class combined together form the Early Years Unit of Stuart Road Primary School.

We offer two Nursery sessions per day within school hours. 

Morning sessions: 8:50am- 11:30am

Afternoon sessions: 12:45pm- 3:15pm. 

Each session is 2 hours and 30 minutes long - each child is entitled to 15 hours Nursery provision, which equates to six sessions free of charge.

 NEW! 30 hours Nursery Provision is available, subject to status and availability.

The school year is separated into SIX terms - your child is entitled to join our Nursery after their THIRD birthday. Please notify the OFFICE or Nursery staff to register your interest or for further information.

Read Write Inc.
 
Here is a link below demonstrating how 'Pure Sounds' are produced. Children will need to know this in order to match letters with sounds and aid reading of simple words such as c-a-t, b-a-t

Read Write Inc Letter Formation
 
Please find below a selection of Read Write Inc work sheets showing how letters are formed.
The list is not in alphabetical order but in accordance to how frequently these letters are used and catagorised in a way to create short words for the children to read and write for example 'm-a-t', 'c-a-t', 's-a-t'.
 
If you do not have the means to print these off you could alternatively use a thick yellow coloured felt tip or marker pen to make your own worksheets on pieces of paper for the children to trace over .
