Welcome to Longborough's Little Pickles


Home Learning ideas


Click on the stars below for some EYFS ideas to share with your child/children whilst Little Pickles is closed. We would love to see what the children are up to! You can add photos, videos and comments that we can read and respond to via Tapestry.


How to upload to Tapestry: 

Choose the ‘Add Observation’ option (or the ‘plus’ icon on your iphone/ipad) and add the relevant information into the boxes on the screen. Photos and videos may be uploaded by choosing the ‘add media’ option. When you have saved your observation, you may go back to the home screen at any time by choosing the ‘Obs’ tab or clicking on the logo (on the cloud, top left corner).


Stay safe and we hope to see you all again very soon.

Little Pickles Useful Information

Snack and Drinks:

We provide fruit/vegetable snacks and milk (1 carton per day) for the children, if you wish to send additional snacks or drinks please do so in a labelled box/bag. 

All children should bring a labelled water bottle to school which will be kept in our classroom. The children can access this at all time and bottles will be refilled during the day. 


Day to Day Essentials:



As part of the Early Years curriculum, we encourage the children to use our outside area and the field as part of their learning in all weathers. Please ensure that the children have wellies and coats in school every day. 


If your child is in nappies, please provide a clearly labelled changing bag with the necessary items in. We will support and encourage the children when potty training but do suggest that you provided enough spare pants  and clothes for any little accidents.


Even for potty trained children, it is always useful to provide a spare pair of underwear in the children's bag in case of any accidents and you may also wish to provide a spare pair of trousers/skirt to change into. We will speak to you at the end of the session discretely and return any washing to you in a carrier bag if needed. 


Your child's activities and their development will be recorded and shared via Tapestry. We will be adding pictures and observations during some sessions, which you will be able to view at home. 

If you have any questions or queries, please catch one of the nursery staff at the end of the session. If you require more time to discuss a matter, please don't hesitate to email the office with a question or arrange a meeting outside of the core session hours.
