Nursery Home Learning Activities for w/c 18th January

A super BIG hello to all our Nursery superstars ...

We hope you had lots of fun 'down on the farm' last week. We loved seeing all the different activities you shared with us on Purple Mash ... fantastic farm building, farmyard music composing, potato people creating, super story reading and amazing animal counting! WOW! You have been working so hard at home and we are really proud of you. Keep having fun!


As part of our Amazing Animals topic, this week is POLAR week! So find a warm coat, hat, scarf and gloves ... because we're off to some of the coldest places in the world for some ICEtastic, SNOWmazing learning!


Parents ...

Thank you for all that you are doing to support your child at home. We appreciate that home learning can bring many challenges. Please only try to do what is manageable for you and your own family circumstances. That might well be different from day to day and week to week. Be kind to yourself and try to find a balance that works for you. Whatever you do just remember that every child's learning journey is different, every child's needs are different, and that it is not a race or a competition!


When COVID restrictions mean that the world around has has to be different it's important as parents that we try to provide our children with familiar and secure experiences at home. Some of the very best learning and a lot of fun can come from the most unexpected opportunities ... so please keep finding time for 'family time'. Playing board games, cooking, playing with toys, watching movies, going for a walk ... these are all most definitely part of the 'Home Learning' curriculum so please embrace and enjoy them.


Stay safe and THANK YOU!


Mrs Evans and Mrs Nash

Please note that for the 'Frozen Animal Rescue - Investigating Ice' activity you will need ice blocks! Using plastic containers of different sizes and shapes please freeze a selection of plastic toy animals in ice! (... you could use plastic toy characters if you don't have any suitable toy animals at home). It doesn’t matter if parts of the toy animals stick out at the top, this will actually engage little minds and encourage them to try and rescue the animals!
