Pizza party!

by Mr Hughes

A big 'thank you' to the staff at Papa John's for our pizza lunch today! 

The children (and staff!) enjoyed having a little treat.

We'll all make sure to do Joe Wick's PE lesson tomorrow morning after eating all that food!

First birthday fun in isolation

by Mrs Aldous

Hello everyone. You haven't seen me around school for a while because I have been at home on maternity leave looking after my son Joey.  On Sunday it was his first birthday so I thought I would share with you how we celebrated whilst isolating at home. I hope you are all keeping safe and well and I look forward to seeing you all soon.

Home Learning Activities

by Miss Campbell

Dear Parents and carers,


Please find below a range of activities that you can do with your child can daily.


You can sign up to the Oxford Owl website for free. Select the age of your child and share a book with them. Click on the link below.


Sing the Jolly phonics song (remember to join in and do the actions to match the sound).



Please practise writing your name every day. You can also draw a picture of something you might see at the circus. Don't forget to label your picture. Tell your grown up about your picture and ask them write down what you say.


Count to 10, 20 or 37 each day. (You can clap, jump or pat your hands on your knees as you count)

Go on a number hunt around the house. What numbers did you find? Where did you find them?

I wonder who has the most steps in their house. Can you count how many steps are in your house? Email your answer to me at: kcampbell@oldmoat.manchester.sch.uk.

Sing the number of the day songs from the link below.


Physical development

Please click on the links below to find some of our favourite action rhymes.





Please remember to keep in touch. Your friends and all the teachers in the Nursery would love to know what you have been busy doing during your time at home. You can email me at: kcampbell@oldmoat.manchester.sch.uk

Learning at Home

by Mr Hughes


Some of your teachers might have already shared White Rose Maths home learning lessons - here is the link again in case you haven't had chance to take a look just yet.


Your teachers already use lots of White Rose resources in your lessons so the types of problems, the methods you use to solve the problems and the images to help you solve them will look familiar. There is a video for every activity to show you how to complete each objective and then some challenges to try at home!

The Maths Factor is a site by Carol Vorderman offering a free subscription for parents during school closures. The website has lots of games and activities to try and there are live lessons everyday at 1pm.

Keep checking your class blog for updates from your teachers and remember, there are lots of Maths games and activities on Purple Mash which you can try as well
