Hello, Nursery!

Everyday a mixture of activities will be uploaded to this page for you to access and have a go at together as part of your child's 'home learning'. We will try our best to keep the activities and routine close to what the children are familiar with, whilst making sure you have fun learning!! The home activities will include a phonics activity, a maths and mix of other activities linked to the skills the children have been developing and exploring in class.

 

Home Learning Ideas 

Reading and Phonics: 

Please read to your child each day or ask them to tell you a story of their using a picture book. Here are some useful links:

Maths: 

Please practice number counting, sequencing and recognition to 5 and then 10. This could also include opportunities to form numbers with crayons, pens, chalks, flour, whilst singing the number formation rhymes (see sheet in pack). You could watch episodes of Numberblocks and support your child with their counting and number recognition.

Monday 30th March

Morning everyone, 

Hope you are well and had a restful weekend!

Our home learning activities this week will have an Easter theme!!

 

Let’s begin with our ‘Brain Gym’ – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dtQ72qRpVVE

 

Phonics:

This week in phonics we will be looking at letter sounds with the September starters and trying to find objects which begin with the same initial letter (e.g., a – apple). The January starters will be continuing to develop their body percussion skills by practising copying a sequence of actions or following a rhythm.

 

Activity:

September starters – (looking at alliteration and letter sounds)

Click on the link to find the jolly phonics song for the letter ‘b’. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Qpn2839Kro. Did you copy the action? Does this letter appear in your name? Now, it is time to go on a ‘sound hunt’. What can you find around your house that begins with the letter ‘b’? Can you say all their names to make an ‘alliterative sentence’? E.g., bag, book, ball, bike.

January starters – (looking at body percussion) 

Play the game ‘time for bed’. Talk about different sounds we can make with our mouth e.g. yawning, snoring, singing or munching. Get the children to pretend to be asleep, the adult must than make a sound using their mouth? The children must then wake up. What sound is it?

 

Choosing time 

Don’t forget to have some choosing time!!

Have a play and come back to see what is next.

Communication and language:

It is nearly Easter time. Using the resource uploaded why not play the ‘What can you see PowerPoint’ and have a discussion together about Easter. Instead, you could look at a collection of Easter images online and talk about what you can see and make links. This link gives an overview on Easter and how it is celebrated if you want to have a look - Click https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=StlJgYF-Ki8

 

Why not finish your home learning with a sing along. Click on the link to access some Easter songs or download the PDF document for some Easter songs. https://www.youtube.com/user/KIBOOMU

 

Thank you

Tuesday 31st March

Morning everyone, 

 

Let’s do some exercise with Joe Wicks PE – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d3LPrhI0v-w

 

Phonics:

Activity:

September starters – (looking at alliteration and letter sounds)

Click on the link to find the jolly phonics song for the letter ‘c’. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Qpn2839Kro. Did you copy the action? Does this letter appear in your name? Now, it is time to play ‘Silly Soup’. Collect a bowl and spoon and provide a selection of items with names that begin with the sound ‘c’. Allow your child to play and concoct their own recipes by putting one item into the bowl at a time. Each time they add one of the items into the bowl, encourage them to say the sound, e.g., ‘c-cup, c-car’. At the end, ask them to tip out all the items from the bowl and recite their name. E.g., car, cat, cup……

 

January starters – (looking at body percussion) 

Listen to some music at home with your family. This can be music on the radio or music downloaded on a phone or ipod. Can you all clap along to the beat? Can you choose a different body percussion? Can you stamp along to the beat?

 

Choosing time 

Don’t forget to have some choosing time!!

Have a play and come back to see what is next.

Maths:

Draw and cut-out at least 10 egg shapes. Next, colour them in. Colour one in red, two in green, three in blue, four in yellow (or any colours you have) and then hide them around the house. Together, go hunting for them until they have all been collected. Once collected, sort them into colours, then 1:1 count how many in each set. Can you put them altogether and count how many you have in one long line?

 

Finish off your home learning session with a story. Can you choose a favourite or do you want to tell your own?

 

Thank you!

Miss Wood

Wednesday 1st April

Morning everyone,

Let’s begin with our ‘Brain Gym’ – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2UcZWXvgMZE

 

Phonics:

Activity:

September starters – (looking at alliteration and letter sounds)

Click on the link to find the jolly phonics song for the letter ‘d’. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Qpn2839Kro. Did you copy the action? Does this letter appear in your name? Now, it is time to play ‘I spy’. Find a collection of objects that begin with a ‘d’ and a couple that don’t. Go through the names of each object but emphasise and say louder the objects that begin with a ‘d’. Next, start the game by saying; ‘I spy something that begins with… ‘d’. Encourage your to pick up and name an object that begins with a ‘d’. Repeat until all the objects that begin with a ‘d’ have been spied. 

 

January starters – (looking at body percussion) 

Play ‘Simon says’ and see if you can copy the body percussion actions. E.g., Simon says….tape your knees, Simon says….stomp your feet, or you could play ‘Follow the Leader’ with your family. One person chooses some body percussion, e.g., patting knees or clapping hands and the rest of the family have to copy. Take turns to be the leader.

 

Choosing time 

Don’t forget to have some choosing time!!

 

Maths:

Using the eggs cut-out from yesterday’s maths session, learn and sing the counting song, ‘Five Easter Eggsto the tune of ‘Five Currant Buns’. See if you can take the eggs away and count each time how many you have left. Look for the lyrics from the uploaded document. https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/t-n-2528-five-easter-eggs-counting-song-sheet. For those that feel they can do this with higher numbers, extend the activity by using a larger amount of eggs and see if you can say what ‘1 less than each number is. E.g., when I take 1 egg from 6 it leaves 5. One less that 6 is 5, etc

 

You can watch the short story about Penny the Hen and find out about the life cycle of a chicken https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pozsn2f6M3Y

 

Thank you again for the uploads of your learning.

Well done!

Thursday 2nd April

Morning everyone, 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N9LLMRC8UmM

 

Let’s do some exercise with Joe Wicks PE – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SbFqQarDM50

 

Phonics:

Activity:

September starters – (looking at alliteration and letter sounds)

Click on the link to recap the sounds and actions for the letters explored this week – ‘b’ ‘c’ ‘d’ - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Qpn2839Kro. Why not have a go at forming the letters using the letter formation rhymes (see sheet in pack). You can try writing them in flour or with chalks or on a steamy mirror. You decide!

 

January starters – (looking at body percussion) 

Explain that sometimes we need to be loud and quiet. Demonstrate saying your name loud and quiet. What scenarios do you need to be loud or quiet? What sounds can you make with your mouth? Can you make them LOUD and can you make them QUIET?

 

Choosing time 

Don’t forget to have some choosing time!!

Understanding of the world

Let's be a scientist today!! Can you make your own 'Lava Lamp?'. Using capacity to measure out the ingredients, can you follow the instructions together to make your bubbling lamp. Look at the image below to use the step by step guide. Get experimenting!!!

If you don't have the right ingredients, then why not try 'growing a rainbow'.

 

Why not finish off your home learning with a bit of singing. You can choose number songs to sing or familiar rhymes. Click on the link and choose a couple of songs to sing together!! https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/school-radio/nursery-rhymes-songs-index/zhwdgwx

Friday 3rd April

Morning everyone,

 

Let’s begin with our ‘Brain Gym’ – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9gV85rd3yTc

 

It’s Friday  again and that only means….Funky Fingers!!

 

Funky fingers activity:

To exercise our finger muscles this week, I would like you to draw or paint an Easter picture. You could draw some Easter eggs, flowers, chicks or even Easter Bunny! This task is all about using your ‘birdie-beak’ when holding the mark-making tools and giving meaning to your marks by talking about what you have drawn. Once you have finished your picture, it might be nice to hang it up in your window!  

 

Choosing time 

Have a play and come back to see what is next.

 

Our next activity is about developing the muscles in the body, whilst having fun at the same time! Play a movement game based on different Easter animals. Together perform different actions based on the type of animal called out. For example, if the adult says ‘rabbit’, then jump around with your feet together, ‘chick’ means to strut around and move their arms like wings, ‘lamb’ means the children skip and prance around and ‘Easter Bunny’ means the children run around pretending to hide Easter eggs around the space.

 

To finish off, enjoy the 'Easter Bunny Story' - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v1kRZB0Tc_k

 

We will not be not be putting on any home learning activities over the next two weeks, but we will be uploading a collection of Easter activities you might what try at home together over the holidays. 

Please check back in on the 20th April to see what we will be getting up to next term.

 

Happy Easter! Have a great break everyone and please remember to stay safe!
