Remote Learning

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 

We are missing you. laugh

Nursery Learning - week beginning 18.1.21

We shared this book in the Nursery this week. The story led to lots of discussion about friendships and how you play with a friend. If you do not have the book, you can follow the link below and watch it being read online. You may want to mute the sound so that you can read it. In that way you can stop and talk about the story. I asked the children what animal they thought the snow cloud would make next. We hope you enjoy it.



This week we made some penguins and icebergs using egg cartoons. We cut the shapes as the cardboard is quite thick. The children then painted them using black and white paint. We thought you might like to make some at home as we have enjoyed playing with them all week.


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. 

We also had a go at drawing a simple penguin. The children really enjoyed this activity and some even added the sea and fish!
Some of us had a go at singing this song. Mrs Peel kept getting it wrong!

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.


In our phonics sessions this week we are learning the letter sound 'c'. To develop the correct letter formation, the children have been drawing stripes onto caterpillars which I have drawn in the shape of a 'c' while saying the 'c' sound.
