Nursery Home Learning Ideas 3rd April 2020


Thank you so much for all the positive feedback on the storytelling session! I am so pleased that the children enjoyed it. I will record some more soon, and put them up after the holidays. (I am staying at my sister’s house at the moment, so I am able to borrow my nephew’s wonderful collection of books!)

Here are a few activities and challenges that you could complete at home over the Easter break. Remember that just spending time with your with your little ones, having fun playing together, following their lead and being a little bit silly is the best way to spend the Easter holiday! These are only ideas so please do not feel you have to do them.

  1. Look at baby photos together - As we were looking at growing this term, it might be fun for you to look at baby photos with your children. You could then talk about how your child has grown and things that they can do now, that they were not able to do when they were younger.
  2. Sing Songs and Nursery Rhymes – You could continue to practise the songs that we learnt as part of the Nursery Rhyme Challenge earlier in the year. For example; Jelly on a Plate, One, Two, Buckle my Shoe, Teddy Bear, 5 Currant Buns. At this time of year, we usually learn the ‘Spring Chicken’ song too. You could learn this at home using the link on our school website, which can be found here
  3. Learning the Names of Animal Babies – During Spring many animals have their babies. You could spend some time researching online or reading books to together, to find out the special names of the different babies. For example, a baby horse is called a foal. 
  4. Maths Activities – Choosing the correct number for groups of objects 1-5. Please see below the attachment with activity ideas to support your child’s number skills.

I have added a new ‘a parent’s guide to…’ on the nursery home page. This week’s is all about mathematics, and how there are many fun ways that you can support your child’s learning at home.

Take care,

The Nursery Team.
