For those of our Nursery children who are moving to Reception at Fielding Primary School in September 2020, we have prepaired a short video of what you will find and who you will meet when you start school. Click on the school logo to watch the short video.
After such an amazing couple of terms together in Nursery, it is now time for most of our children to move onto Reception. We are all dissappointed that our year ended so soon but we hope you have found our Noticeboard and Instagram pages helpful. For a special message from Mr McEvoy and Miss May please click on one of the images below.
We would be very grateful if you could return to Nursery the Read, Write Inc 'Sound Blending' books which were issued to your child in the Spring term before Nursery closed.
Thank you to all those Parents and Carers who have returned the books. Our collection point is still open and there is still time to return books before the end of the summer term.
Book drop off can be made on Wednesdays and Thursdays during the hours of 9.30-10.15 and 1.45pm till 2.30pm. Please enter the Nursery via the Coombe Road entrance.
Please place the book into the Return Book home, which is located outside of the Nursery outdoor area gate (See picture below).
If you are a parent of one of our Keyworker children who are currently attending Nursery, please put the book into your childs bag so that we can retrieve it when your child enters the Nursery.
Thank you for your continued help and support.
We know that this is a difficult time for families, we encourage you to create a routine for your child. This could include time where your child continues to focus on practising and rehearsing their basic skills. You might find our links below useful for this. In addition to this children will also learn a lot from the following activities:
As you know Nursery is currently open to children of Keyworkers. Please be assured we will be mirroring activities and contentent posted on our Noticeboard and Instagram with the children in Nursery.
Children can think about each curriculum challenge and you may wish to send a; 'Wow note, photograph or spoken quotes' from your child to show how their learning is developing from home. You could do this using our Instagram page as I know some of you have been doing or email @ Ladybirds@fielding.ealing.sch.uk or Dragonflies@fielding.ealing.sch.uk or the usual firstname.lastname@example.org
Please see our curriculum overview to find out what your child is learning now and how that fits in to their wider learning:
Phonics is the way we teach children to recognise the sounds in words. It helps your child to learn to read and is an essential part of your child’s education.
In school we teach children to read through linking letters and sounds using a published programme called ‘Read Write Inc’ (RWI). During the summer term, there are a range of online resources you can use to support the teaching of phonics at home.
Your child can participate in daily lessons on the RWI YouTube site at home. You can access the lessons by clicking on the link below,
Our vulnerable pupils and children of key workers who are in school will have the chance to take part in a phonics session in school.
In Nursery the children have been working through set 1. In school we send home books that support the sounds that the children are working on. In Nursery we regularly recap the sounds in the previous set so you may wish to revisit some of the earlier lessons especially if your child is finding the lesson a little tricky.
This week the sounds covered will be : 'x' 'th' 'ch' 'qu' 'ng'.
The document below will help your child practice their letter formation for each sound.
This year in school we have been exploring the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and how we can play our part as global citizens. Recently Earth School was launched which is a 30-day home-schooling journey to connect children to nature. https://ed.ted.com/earth-school
If you have enjoyed our SDG sessions in school, check out the daily quests – you can choose to watch the videos and have a go at the suggested quizzes and activities.

To help your child think about moving on to their new school, we have put a little pack together to help them think about how unique they are.
Next week will be the last week before Nursery ends for another Academic Year. We will be posting our favourite stories and songs and wishing everyone the best of luck for the future.
