Many of our Nursery children are now at home and we would like to provide you with weekly activities and resources, should you need them. Children learn best through play, so activities such as playing with lego, cars, dolls and play doh are just as important as more formal learning.
Lots of educational websites are offering free resources for parents at the moment, you will find a list below.
Next week in Nursery, we were going to begin learning about Easter. You may wish to share the following video with your child
https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/religious-studies-ks1-the-christian-story-of-easter/zhgv47h and the reasons we give eggs to each other at Easter. Below are some ideas of activities you may like to do together.
- Can you make an Easter bonnet to wear on Easter Sunday. Don't worry if you can't get resources, you can make your bonnet from a sunhat, baseball cap or just a circle of card. You could decorate your hat with real eggs (see below) or just colouring pencils and paints. See what you can create and post it on Tapestry.
- Look at the shape of an egg. Draw a large egg shape and then decorate your egg with colouring pencils, paint, crayons or collage materials (you can help your child with shape recognition by including and naming shapes on you decoration)
- Make a small hole in the top and bottom of the egg and gently blow out the yolk. Use paint or felt tips to decorate your egg and then place in an egg cup and display.
- Make an Easter nest cake. A simple recipe can be found at https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/shredded-wheat-nests (you can help your children with number activities, by counting the ingredients you use)
- There are lots of Easter egg and Easter bunnny colouring activities, such as https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/t-t-751-easter-colouring-posters (you can currently sign up free at www.twinkl.co.uk/offer using the code PARENTSTWINKLHELPS)
- Read books with your child. You can also access stories on You Tube and more recently at https://www.weareteachers.com/virtual-author-activities/?utm_content=1584565321&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook&fbclid=IwAR2icb4NQyeQaMXtvV--7DDxFTaui5eks1TYi_mJiDRcRI3mUQ9nPMnQYYE. Ask your child questions after the story has ended, such as 'What was your favourite part? And why?'. If the story is familiar, your child might like to read key parts to you!
