For those of you at home, we are sharing some of the learning that we are doing each week in the Nursery. It would be great if you can do some of these activities, or similar, with your child. Please let us know how you get on by emailing email@example.com
We are missing you.
Nursery Learning - week beginning 18.1.21
This week we are learning the letter sound 'e'. We are learning the correct letter formation for 'e' by drawing an egg shape. Then we pretend to cut off the top and scoop out the inside. It is a tricky one to write!
If your child is not ready for this yet, you could get them to draw lots of circle shapes and then you demonstrate how to draw the 'e' while making the sound for this letter.
It would be great if your child could have a go at cracking a real egg at home! We didn't do this in the Nursery but we played with plastic eggs.
Nursery Learning Week beginning 11.1.21
This week we are sharing the story of Stick Man by Julia Donaldson. If you do not have the book at home, you can listen to it being read online by following the link
It is quite a long story so you may want to do it in sections. We have been teaching the children at school to retell the beginning of the story using actions to help them.
Stick Man lives in the family tree (stand up and pretend to be a tree) with his Stick Lady Love (cross arms over chest as in a hug) and his stick children three (pretend to pat three children on their heads).
One day he wakes early to go for a jog (pretend to jog). Stick Man, oh Stick Man beware of the dog (hold hands like paws).
We also made some stick men using toilet rolls. The children cut the paper hair of their Stick Men to help develop their cutting skills. If you do not have pipe cleaners at home, you could use small sticks.
We ordered the stick men from the largest to the smallest. You could order some sticks from a walk or your garden.
To develop our counting skills, we have been playing hide and seek. The children have been reciting numbers to 10, then 15 and then 20.
