Online Learning Apps
A few parents have been asking for access to some online learning apps. The apps that the rest of the school usually access for homework on a regular basis are not suitable for our Early Years Children however we have found a few learning apps that you can access at home free of charge. Please click the links below to enter the apps and have fun learning! ?

Understanding the World
Sinking and Floating
Fill up a container with water or use the bath. Select some items from around the house. Get your child to predict which items will sink or float. Test the items then discuss why items sunk or floated.
Use your favourite toys to make shadows on paper then have a go at drawing around the shadow.
Use carrot tops to grow healthy carrot greens. Place a carrot top or tops in a bowl, cut side down. Fill the bowl with about an inch of water so the top is halfway covered. Place the dish in a sunny windowsill and change the water every day.

Rainbows on windows
Rainbows are used as a symbol of peace and hope as they often appear when the sun follows a heavy rainfall. They serve to remind us that there is hope and light to follow even after dark times.
A gigantic Bear hunt is coming to Kennington…
Every heard the story – We are going on a bear hunt by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury
We thought you could all do just that!
To take part you must put your favourite teddy bear/s in a window that looks out onto the street. Then when you go out with your family for a walk look out for all the bears in and around your community.
How many could you find? Did you see your friends house with their bear? Was there more bears this week than there was last week? You could always get your family involved too and get your grandparents and aunties to join in and place their favourite teddy in the window for you to count on your adventure. Lets see if we can get as many houses in Kennington with bears in their window.
Oh and don’t forget you need to listen to the story I am going on a bear hunt before you start so you know what you are letting yourself in for!

Below is a link to the EYFS curriculum – Development Matters. A child at the end of their nursery year in school would be expected to meet all of the 30-50months aspects outlined in this document with some of the 40-60months aspects. This is just a guide so that you know what the end of year expectations for your child would have been.
