Week 6 Monday 8th February

Good morning everyone,

It's looking as if today could be a real snow day!! Go outside and have fun in the snow and fresh air. You could make something out of snow for art week. This week is Art week, and I am really looking forward to seeing what artwork you e-mail to go into our Nursery Art Gallery. I will be putting Phonics, Maths and a new story onto the website each day.

I would like you to explore the garden Centre and the Farm in Simple City on Mini Mash and I would like you to go to the drawing and painting area and in paint projects I would like you to paint a butterfly, a flower and rainbow and save them in your tray so I can see them.

The theme for the whole school's artwork is 'Nature' you can draw, paint, mould, model, collage or photograph your piece of art. If you have a pet you could draw, paint, collage, or make a model of it. You could collect pebbles and stones and make pictures or patterns, or paint stones turning them into insects, or animals. There are so many different arty things you could try. The snow today might be a good place to start, what can you make a snow model of? Can you draw in the snow? Can you catch a snowflake?

Stay safe, wrap up warm if you are playing in the snow and keep smiling.

Good Morning Everyone,

I can hardly believe we are half way through the week already, were you able to read the names of the places I passed on my walk to school yesterday? Well done for trying. I am still trying with my crochet, I have almost finished another baby bunny, look out for the pictures of them, we still need to think of a name for the big bunny, any ideas?

We are continuing to retell all of the Three Little Pigs story as well as learning number 8 today, please go to My Little World Kitchen and try Measuring and Grating. When you visit Mini Mash can you paint number 8 and save it to your  tray before visiting Simple City on the map on the wall in the classroom and exploring all the activities in The Cafe, have fun!

Week 4 Monday 25th January

Good morning everyone!

It has been so nice to have some proper cold and frosty wintery weather, have you been out for a walk in the frost? I went for a walk yesterday, the grass sounded very crunchy when I stepped on it and everywhere was lovely and shimmery white. 

This week we will be telling the whole of the Three Little Pigs story, we are exploring rhythm and rhyme in Phonics and in Maths we are revisiting numbers 1-5 with the Numberblocks and I will be teaching you to write numbers 6-10.

You will need some pegs and a towel for Funky Fingers.

I have finally managed to crochet a rabbit and a baby bunny, look out for their photos. Have you managed to learn a new skill? Perhaps you can put your own socks on, get dressed, fasten your zip, use a knife and fork, peel a potato or set the table.

Have a lovely day, stay safe, and enjoy today's activities.

Good Morning everyone, it was lovely to speak to some of you yesterday, If I didn't speak to you then I will phone and speak to you on Thursday.

I know it's not the same as Nursery, but hopefully you will be trying all of the activities I have put here on the website for you. 

Make sure you look every day because I am putting new jobs for you to try each day. Remember to look on Mini Mash too, Miss Bulman has put more lovely activities for you to try on there, and there will be more every day.

It would be really good if you could use the time at home to practice things like getting dressed yourself, putting your own shoes on the correct feet, and fastening the zip of your coat, some of you could almost do this before Christmas.

It would be fantastic if you all learn some new skills while you are at home! yes I am trying to teach myself to crochet, it is very tricky and I am not very good at it but I keep trying every day angry. I am trying to make a bunny rabbit, I will take some photos to share with you if I get any further than a knot of wool!!

As I was walking into school this morning in the dark and cold something magical happened and it started to snow!

Go to the Role Play area, take a selfie and turn yourself into a snowman like I did yesterday.

Anyway here are today's Phonics and Maths activities, and a story to listen to. I hope you do get a chance to play in the snow.

Happy New Year everyone!

I hope you had a lovely Christmas. I miss you all already, this is not the start to the year we were hoping for but I will try and make the activities I put onto the website and Mini Mash fun. 

Parents you were given a laminated sheet at the start of December with your child's login for Purple Mash / Mini Mash, and instructions telling you how to login. I will be putting 3 new activities on Mini Mash every day, please help your child to complete them by 2:45pm each day.

We start every day with Funky Fingers, and I will continue to do this, you will also find a Phonic (sounds) activity, and a Maths activity each day, here on the website, I will also share a  story each day. Our Topic is 'Fabulous Food!' and we would have been learning 'The Three Little Pigs' so many of the activities will be based around these themes. 

Parents I will try and keep the activities fun, interesting and short, please enjoy spending this extra time at home with your child, playing games, chatting, sharing stories and enjoying each others company.
