You might remember that a few weeks ago Paula shared some Bucket Time activities with you, Bucket Time is particularly for children who have social and communication difficulties as it helps to improve their joint attention skills.
This week Paula is going to be sharing some Attention Building activities. In the Early Intervention Group, we begin our group time sessions with a Bucket and then follow on with the Attention Builder. The Attention Builder will extend your child's concentration time and joint attention skills.
Paula will demonstrate the activities so that you can watch with your child and some of them you may like to do again yourself with your child at home.

Today Paula is back with another bucket time activity.
Monday, May 4th 2020
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.

We have referred a number of families to the foodbank to help them to feed their families during this time and are acting as a donation point in Southall. As you can imagine the demand for this service is very high at the moment and any donations that you may be able to make would be very gratefully received. Greenfields is open for donations on a Mon, Tues and Thurs 11am-2pm. We will then arrange for these to be delivered to the main foodbank centre in Hanwell. Please follow the link below to find a list of foods that are currently needed and your closest donation point.
I am so grateful to be working in such a kind and caring community at this time, I hope you are all keeping well and safe and I look forward to seeing you all as soon as it is safe to do so.

Greenfields named 'Nursery of the Year'.
It is a great honour and privilege to receive this award that recognises our creative and nurturing approach to children's learning and development. Judge Wendy Scott has written the following about Greenfields;
‘Greenfields’ curriculum is directed towards nurturing, supporting and listening to young children through a vibrant, creative approach to learning. The nursery school is well known for its work with resident artists, where children are challenged to think outside their own scale and experience by creating large works with new materials and considering questions of maths and physics as well as exploring a set of art practices’.
