Have a lovely weekend, we'll see you next week.
Dear Parents and Carers,
please find below a letter to parents and carers from Councillor Julian Bell, Leader of Ealing Council regarding the re-opening of Ealing's schools.
Kind regards, Ellie Larkin, Headteacher.
Good morning everyone,
here is this weeks creative project, we hope you have fun making your own shadow drawings.
If you live locally and can walk to Greenfields, you can come and collect some chalk from us here. Please follow the simple guidelines below to keep everyone safe.
1 - Ring the buzzer at the front gate.
2 - Staff will talk to you through the intercom - tell them that you are there to collect some chalk.
3 - The gate will open and you will see the chalk laid out in envelopes on a table. Please only take one envelope and do not touch any of the others.
4 - Do not attempt to go inside the buidling. Only staff and children that are currently attending can enter the building.
Don't forget to wash your hands as soon as you are finished your chalk pictures.
Have fun and don't forget to to send us photographs of your creative work so that we can share it on our website with your friends.
Dear Parents and Carers,
At this point in the summer term we would usually be working on a creative project with our artists in residence Rosie Potter and Patricia Ayres that the children would initiate, plan, develop and create. We would then usually take these projects out into the community to share with our friends and families. Those of you that have been with us for a while may remember our Water Donkey Project and our Wonderwall Project.
We are very sad that we will not be able to bring the children and families together this year for a shared creative project, but instead we have worked with our artists and their students from Wimbeldon College, University of the Arts London, to develop a series of creative workshops that you can enjoy together with your children at home. Each week you will be given a starting point for your project but you can be as creative as you like and develop it however you and your child would like to. We would love it if you could send some photographs of your creations to email@example.com and then we can share these with everyone on our website gallery so that we can all see what you have been creating during this season that we cannot be together. The students will also use the children's work as part of their project and assessments to submit to their university.
Look out for project number one which will be posted later on today.

Good morning everyone,
If you have children that have social communication difficulties you may have heard your keyworker talking about 'bucket time'. Bucket time is an activity that we do everyday with some of the children at nursery and this week Paula will be sharing some videos with you to help you do bucket time at home with your children.
These videos are for you to watch each day with your child. Your child will enjoy the familiar activity with Paula and you can learn how to do it so that next week you can do it by yourself with your child.
We hope you find them useful, here is bucket number one.
We will be back tomorrow with bucket number two.
Today's Story is Handa's Surprise written by Eileen Browne and published by Walker Books.

See you tomorrow
Good morning children,

When you have finished the story maybe you can play a game of hide and seek with whoever is at home with you and don't forget to get outside while it is dry!!!
Dear parents and carers,
during our telephone conversations with you, some of you have been telling us that you and your children have not left the house since the lockdown begun. This is concerning, as staying inside all of the time can have a negative impact on your emotional and physical well being.
Government guidance says that we can go out once a day for exercise as long as we follow the social distancing guidelines and keep more than two metres away from anyone that does not live in our household. We can also go to the shops to buy essential items such as food and if you have nobody else to look after your child you can take them with you.
Some of you may know our friend Dr Jenny Watson a GP and member of St John's Church in Southall. Please watch her video by clicking on the link below where she explains how you can stay safe while going out for exercise.
I hope this will reassure you and help you to feel more confident in taking some daily exercise.
Our story today is Cheeky Monkey by Anastasiia Drakova, Rosalind Jenner, and Templar Internal Design.
After the story you could make your own puppet from paper or an old sock and make up your own 'Cheeky Monkey' story.
Have a lovely weekend everyone.
Today we have a story from a friend at another Children's Centre. We hope you enjoy it.
You can find more activity ideas as well as advice and guidance on the Family Information Service facebook page:
You can also follow the links below to some guidance from the Department for Education with some useful ideas for activties you can you do at home to support your child's learning.
Good morning, we hope you had a good weekend and are all keeping safe and well at home.
Today's story is 'Ouch I Need a Plaster' written by Nick Sharratt and read with permission from Scholastic Limited.
After the story you could choose one of these activities to support your child's fine motor skills.
Today's story is In the Tall, Tall Grass by Densie Fleming and is read by Indy.
This is another story about animals so you could try some more animal movements today.
Here is a receipe for making playdough, you could make some animals from playdough to add to your Zoo that you made yesterday.
See you tomorrow......
Today's story is a nursery favourite - Dear Zoo by Rod Campbell and read by Samina.
After the story maybe you could try moving like each of the animals, for example; can you stomp like an elephant with a long trunk or slither on the ground like a snake? Maybe you can hop like a frog or run on all fours like a lion?
Once you have worn yourself out moving like animals you could make your animal zoo using old boxes, paper or sticks from outside. Have a look at the picture below to give you some ideas.
