Home Learning

What your child learns at home is very important to us in school.  We would like you to extend what they have been learning in school to the home environment to cement their new knowledge.

To help with this we will upload resources for you on this page.  This will range from the books we are reading, simple recipes that you can cook at home with your child, simple activities that you can do and songs that you can sing.


We are aware that some children  are still unable to come to nursery at the moment due to the current global pandemic situation that we find ourselves in. 

So that you don't miss out on the exciting things going on we have created a new home learning booklet called "@HOME with Bedford Nursery Schools Federation".

The booklet concentrates on Hands On Meaningful Experiences that you can have with your child whilst you are at home.   It contains lots of ideas for activities, recipes and books that you can share with your child.  All the activities are simple, clear and free to do. 

Click the links below to access electronic copies of the home learning booklets, or if you would like a paper copy please get in touch at and we will send one out to you. 

We would love to see some photographs of you at home doing these activities, or anything else you are learning about . Send them to us at
