Nursery Homework at Newdale

At Newdale Nursery, you will have the opportunity to take part in our weekly book change.

All children will receive a reading journal in their own pack and on a Monday (or the first day they attend in the week), your child will have the opportunity to take home or exchange a ‘Share a Story’ book. We would not expect your child to read these books independently, but rather take the time to share with you. This could be as a bedtime story or at another relaxing point in the day, where the love of reading can be nurtured and every opportunity to develop your child’s vocabulary can be taken.

We send home ideas within the reading journal of questions you could ask whilst reading the book to encourage your child’s understanding. For example, ‘Can you tell me what is happening here?’, ‘How is this character feeling?’ and ‘How do you know?’

If you would like any further support with this, then please do not hesitate to ask us.

From time to time, we may also set other exciting home challenges. You will find these posted directly to you on our ‘Evidence Me’ learning platform app, where you will be able to respond and upload photos if you choose.

Thank you for your ongoing support at home.
