Good Morning Nursery!
I hope you are well? I have recorded a video of me telling you the story of the Three Little Pigs.
It got me thinking about the houses that we live in. After listening to the story, could you draw a picture of where you live? The teachers would love to see them. As an extra challenge, could you try and label your pictures with your name? Your grown-ups could also help you to write some labels - for example what sounds can you hear in words such as 'door', 'roof', 'window' or 'bricks'? If you aren't sure, ask your grown-ups to help you.
The teachers will choose their favourite ones to give a certificate to on Friday!!
Enjoy the story and get drawing and writing!!
Miss you all and hopefully see you soon.
ps - sorry about my hair! I really need a hair cut or some hair bobbles!
Good Morning Nursery.
Schools are going to hopefully receive some more details about reopening this week. Please be assured that we will share any information that we receive with you as soon as possible.
I am attaching a book for children about coronavirus that aims to give information without fear. If you cannot open the link, just search 'Dave the Dog is worried about coronavirus'.
With everything that is going on at the moment; big changes to children’s routines and lots of stories on the news it can be a really scary time for children.
This book aims to open up the conversation about coronavirus and some of the things they might be hearing about it and provide truthful information in a reassuring and child friendly manner.
Any feedback or comments please let us know and above all we send you and your families our love and best wishes.
Mr M.k here to edit.
I hope that you are all well and keeping safe and happy? Hope to see you all soon.
I've recorded myself reading my favourite story. I wonder if you can guess what it is? Its about a little boy and his new toy telescope....
Good Morning Nursery!
I can't post a video today because my wifi isn't working very well. I am going into school tomorrow so I will do a recording there. I hope that you are all well? I have attached two links with maths games to explore. The topmarks website has lots of amazing games to play at home; give it a try! - www.topmarks.co.uk
Missing you all so much. Take care.
Good Morning Nursery!
It was my birthday last week, I love birthdays! I'm sure lots of you like sharing your birthdays! How old are you? How old will you be next year?
Miss McKenzie had a chocolate cake (my favourite)! I also opened some lovely birthday cards! What do you like to do on your birthday?
Because of this, I thought we could read a story about a party today. It's a bit of a silly one but I thought it would be nice to share. The title of the book is called The Toy's Party.
The book is on Oxford Owl https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/
Please login using the My Class Login.
Class Name: classnm
Go to My Bookshelf, then search for The Toy's Party.
Encourage the children to guess what the word's might say from the pictures or if they recognise any letters they know! What did Kipper make? What cake would you make? Was mum happy? Why not?
Happy reading! As always, please continue to send pictures, videos and comments, we love to see what you are up to!

I have a handwriting activity for you today! I have recorded myself (eek!) making patterns and some letters we have started which is similar to the structure we teach in Nursery!
We do handwriting once a week so don't feel pressured to do this everyday, we are all at different stages!
I've attached the lesson and the songs we like to sing below! As well as a little 'SATPIN' booklet from twinkl, you can have a go at the first 3 pages if you would like!
As I said, writing your name, making marks with crayons, sticks in the mud or paint brushes with water will all help just as well with your handwriting!
Missing you all,
So sorry! I have been posting on Google Classroom and forgot to update these pages! Online learning is so hard. :( This is a recap of all the links and videos that I have posted this week. Take care
Good morning all ,
As the weather is warm and beautiful , I thought today we could explore water play.
We LOVE water play in Nursery, it's a wonderful, fun, sensory experience and explores Science and Maths concepts, such as ;
+ Making bubbles
+ Temperature (of water)
+ Capacity (with different sizes of containers and practicing empty / full / half full vocabulary)
+ Floating and Sinking
Water play will also keep our little hands squeaky clean, which can only be a good thing today!
You can enjoy water play outdoors and indoors, just using your washing up bowl, and safe resources from the kitchen and bathroom, such as sponges, spoons and jugs. Raid your recycling for plastic bottles and containers to use in water play, ones with lids are especially fun to match and to practice our fine motor skills with, by screwing and unscrewing them.
I've made a little sheet with resource and activity ideas, plus you'll have lots of other things at home that aren't on there. Grown-ups- maybe now you'll get some help with the washing up hehe.
I can't wait to get back to Nursery and playing in our big outdoor's water tray in the sunshine! Comment/post any water play/learning you enjoy, we love hearing from you and seeing your pictures.
