Good Morning Nursery boys and girls!
This is our last week of home learning activities, before our half term holiday!
Here are your activities for today...
Look at the pictures below and match them, to the correct initial sounds.
For Maths today, you will need 10 black dots (grown ups they need to be about the size of a 2p piece!)
Listen to the story below and have a think about how you can arrange 10 black dots in different ways. Use the ten frame template below. Talk with your grown ups about what you can make, with different numbers of black dots and have a go! I would love to see what you make, on Tapestry.
This week, we will be looking at and talking about the word 'love' and what that means. Talk with your grown ups about your ideas. Who do you love and why?
Watch the Love Monster video below.

Good morning everyone!
Today is Safer Internet Day!
I have attached an information guide, parents and carers, for you to have a read through and maybe talk with your child about being safe online. Please could you talk with your child about the internet and sites that they access, what they like about them and why it is important that they feel safe when working online and share this information with me via Tapestry.
I would also like to see some pictures of how your children access technology around the home, for example, using the television remote control, phone/tablet, taking photographs, using programmable toys etc.
One of the symbols for 'Love' is a heart shape . Today I would like you to explore painting, drawing and making hearts, of all different shapes and sizes, with different patterns. We are going to do some painting in the style of an artist called Wassily Kandinsky and explore how to make different shades (tints) of pink, by mixing red and white paint together.
Look at the images below and then use the resources to create your own 'heartwork' today!

It's another snowy day today, Nursery boys and girls!
Your first job of the day is to get dressed into a waterproof suit, wellies, hats and gloves and go outside to play, in the soft, deep, snow!
If you can, build a snow person, make snow angel, draw a heart shape or any sounds we have learnt in the snow!
I would love to see some pictures and videos on Tapestry!
Can you count out 10 items to put onto your snow person? For example, 2 eyes, 1 nose, a scarf, 2 arms and 4 buttons? I would love to see some pictures of you building and counting. Have a look at the Winter Maths challenges for some outdoor ideas of things to look for and count.

Good morning everyone!
I hope you had lots of fun yesterday, playing in the snow.
It was so soft and fluffy!
Here are today's activities...
Today we are going to be learning a new sound. Have a look at the pictures below and see if you can guess what it is?
Did you guess? It is 'p'
For your activity today, I would like you to go on a scavenger hunt, around your house, in different rooms and find some objects beginning with 'p'. I would love to see some photographs or videos of your hunt and of the things you find!
Watch the Numberblocks episode below, all about pairs of numbers that make 10.Talk with your grown ups about what you have found out.
Today you are going to learn all about Valentines Day and traditions. Watch the presentation of pictures below, with your child and talk about them. Your task for today is, to make a Valentines Card or craft for someone that you love .
In preparation for our Zoom Session tomorrow morning, I would like you to learn this 'Wake Up, Shake Up' dance routine.
Our Nursery zoom session is @9.45am on Friday morning. Please use previous login details sent out, to join the meeting, and remember to change the screen name to your child's name, so I can let them in!
Please can you have a Valentine's craft ready to share and show your Nursery friends, in school.
We can't wait to see you !

Happy Friday Nursery!
Today is our last day of home learning activities, before we break up for our half term holiday, next week!
We can't wait to see you at our Zoom session, later on this morning. Don't forget to bring a Valentines Day craft, that you have made, to show your friends at Nursery.
Do you remember, last week, watching the story of 'The Lost Sheep'. Well, today we are going to be thinking about the word 'precious' again - can you remember what that word means?
Our story, for today, has the word 'precious' in the title and is called 'The Precious Pearl'.
Can you tell or show your grown up, something that is precious to you?
In preparation for Valentines Day, on Sunday, you could have a go at making some heart shaped biscuits for your family. I have attached 2 different biscuit recipes below, for you to choose from.
To end our week of 'love' , I have uploaded a video of the Little Nutbrown Hare tales, 'Guess How Much I love you'.
Today is Chinese New Year - Kung Hei Fat Choi!
Have a listen to the story below and look at some of the activities, if you would like to complete.
