- Have a look around your house and find 2 things that you think might float and 2 things that you think will sink. Ask an adult to test if you’re right.
- Fill a bowl with two-thirds full of water. Place plastic sea creature toys inside (any toys will work if you do not have these). Place in the freezer overnight and explore setting the animals free. Use warm water, salt and any other ideas your child may have
This is our final week before the Summer and I would like to say a big well done to each of you at home and in school for showing amazing resilience. For some of you this means after the Summer break you will be starting Reception. I know how much Miss Kavanagh cannot wait to be your teacher again! Miss Peever and Mrs Bates are also really excited to welcome you in September. For some of you it will just be a ‘see you soon’ as when you will return in September you will be coming back to Nursery and hopefully we may have some new friends joining us! I would also like to say another huge well done and thankyou to parents and carers who have been nothing short of amazing, adapting to home-schooling- a big pat on the back for you too.
It is important to keep practising writing your name, practising numbers 1-10, building on skills to help with independence (own coat, using cutlery and toileting).
Those who will be joining Reception in September I would like you to write a letter for your new teachers. Maybe you could let them know about all the learning you have done at home, or even the things you are most excited about when you return in September.
For those children who will be coming back to Nursery could you draw a picture of what you are most excited about when returning to you class! It might be playing in our new outdoor area.

Over the Summer collect any drawing, photographs, postcards, tickets, etc… from your time over the Summer break. Put them into a scrapbook and keep them as a memory of all the things you did whilst at home.
Here is a list of things to do over the summer, if you are ever feeling bored pick a couple of things off the list
Firstly, please accept my apologies for the delay in posting. There was a small technical problem that has been resolved.
The learning this week will be based around the story “The Gingerbread Man”. Try to familiarise yourself with this story, if you do have access to the book that’s great, I will upload an Ebook version for those who do not.
Rehearse the rhyme “Run, run as fast as you can! You can’t catch me. I’m the Gingerbread Man!”
Can you say it aloud? Now try and whisper it. Say it in your Gruffalo voice. Say it in your mouse voice. Say it really fast. Now say it slow.
Can you think of 3 words that rhyme with a man? Write them down or draw them.
Without using the book, how much of the story do you remember? Retell the story to a grown-up. You could use the images attached as ‘sequencing’ to help you. If you have a printer you could print them out and try to put them in order.
I have attached a recipe for gingerbread playdough. Make your own gingerbread people, using loose parts collected from around the house have a thing what could you use for buttons, eyes and mouths.
Hello Nursery, I hope you have enjoyed your pirate learning. This week’s learning is based around things that live under the sea, have fun!
Communication and Language
Some animals that live under the sea have fins and some animals have legs to help them move around. Can you think of some animals that have fins and some that have legs? Talk to somebody at home and try to think of lots of creatures.
Can you think of an animal that lives under the sea that begins with;
If you would like a challenge and you have accessed phase 3 phonics in school can you think of sea creature that has ‘sh’ at the end? _ _ sh.
