This week’s other learning focuses on supporting your child with transitioning to their new class or looking towards returning to nursery in September. It will give them the opportunity to reflect on their time in nursery, discussing their favourite memories and achievements whilst also considering their hopes and dreams for the next academic year.



Task 1

  • Your child has achieved so much over the course of the year and now it is time to reflect on what makes them proud. Talk to your child about their proudest achievement this year. This could be learning to read some simple words, holding a pencil correctly or making new friends. After discussing your child’s accomplishments, ask them to choose one. Work together to create a portrait of your child which depicts their proudest achievement. This could then be shared with their new class teacher in September. 


Task 2

Read or listen to the story ‘Giraffes Can’t Dance’ by clicking on the picture below. Talk about how Gerald the giraffe showed determination when trying to achieve his goals. Ask your child what they are looking forward to most about next year, what they would like to get better at and what they would like to learn about. Then discuss all of the things that will help your child get ready for next year (see the list below). With your child, choose a few of the items from the list to practise over the next few weeks before September


  • Taking turns when playing games
  • Getting dressed/undressed independently
  • Putting equipment away when I have finished using it
  • Writing my first and last name
  • Washing and drying my hands
  • Using scissors safely
