W.B.18.1.20 Weekly Activities.
Monday 18th January
Today I would like you to read the story
“Mouse paint” by Ellen Stoll Walsh.
It is on You Tube -here is the link:
Here are some questions to think about with your grown up.
What colour paints to the mice find? How many mice are in the story ?
Can you remember any of the colours that the mice mixed with their paws?
If you have any paints at home, have a go at doing some colour mixing. Can you make orange, blue and purple?
If you don’t have any paints at home, you could try colour mixing with crayons or coloured pencils or even food colouring in icing sugar and water!
Now can you answer these colour problems :
Enjoy colouring and painting your own colour mixing pictures!
Don’t forget to send us a photograph!
Now practise singing the Nursery Rhyme “Hickory Dickory Dock”
Tuesday 19th January
Today I would like you to play some colour games.
Look at the houses below:
Can you tell a grown up which colours they are?
Now have a look at these mice:
Which mouse matches house number 1?
Now match the rest of the mice to the correct house.
Have a look around your house.
Can you find anything yellow, red or blue?
In the story “Mouse paint,” the mice mixed colours to make orange, green and purple. Can you find anything that is orange ,green or purple ?
When you have collected everything,can you sort the items in to colour piles?
Now have some fun muddling up the items so that they are in the wrong colour pile. How quickly can you sort them out again ?
Now enjoy singing this rainbow song 🎵
Wednesday 20th January
Today I would like you to go on a sound walk.
Go for a walk with your grown up and listen for the following sounds:
A bird singing
A dog barking
An aeroplane or a helicopter
Which is the loudest sound you can hear? Which is the quietest sound ?
When you get back home have some fun making some music!
You could bang some spoons together or tap with a spoon on a pan !
Have a go at making an instrument of your own.
Find some empty plastic bottles and put some rice, sand or pasta inside, then put the lid back on. Now you have your own shakers!
They will sound a bit like maracas!
Sing your favourite song and see if you can shake in time with the music !
You could make a band with your family and shake altogether!
Have lots of fun !
Thursday 21st January
Today I would like you make some animal pictures using shapes.
Collect some items from around your house that you can draw around to make circles, like a cup ,an egg cup or a small bowl.
First have a go at drawing a mouse.
Draw around a small circle for the head, then a bigger circle for the body. Add 2 small circles for ears, then add eyes, a mouth ,a nose, whiskers, teeth and a tail.
Now add some paws.
Now do the same thing again to draw a cat ,only this time draw triangles for the ears and the nose and no teeth!
Make his paws a little longer too-a bit like sausages !
Look carefully at your pictures.
Let’s do some counting :
How many legs do the animals have?
How many eyes ?
How many ears ?
How many circles and triangles can you see ?
Have a go at writing some numbers .
Friday 22nd January
Today I would like you to read a new poem with your grown up.
Can you crawl like a mouse
In to your house ?
Can you creep like a cat
Well fancy that!
Can you run like a dog
And jump like a frog?
Can you swish your tail
Like a big blue whale?
Now curl up tight in to a ball
And try not to move anything at all!
Can you move like the animals in the poem whilst your grown up reads it to you?
What sound does “dog” begin with?
What sound does “cat” begin with?
What sound does “mouse” begin with?
Now have a go at writing some sounds.

We were very lucky to have our very own Christmas tree in Nursery this year and the children loved making their own salt dough decorations to make the tree look pretty! We used rolling pins to flatten the dough and then chose our own shaped cutters to make different shaped decorations! We then used (lots) of glitter and paint to make them look fabulous for our Christmas Tree!
Waffle is our school dog! He is a fun-loving Cockerpoo with lots of energy and the children treat him like he's their own. He has helped lots of our Nursery children to settle in during the Autumn Term and he is always around to make us smile!
If you would like to see some of the adventures Waffle has been going on, please visit our 'Waffle' page on the children's section of the website, where you will find a special message along with some very cute pictures!
We love story time!
We provide lots of opportunities for the children to enjoy stories throughout the day. Our favourite books are displayed for the children to access independently during their busy time and they love to look at the pictures with their friends,
talking about what they can see!
Every afternoon we have a whole class story time before the children return home along with the rest of the school.
Nursery rhymes are a fantastic way of building your child's vocabulary and language skills. Children love to learn actions to go with their songs so why not try making up your own as you go along!
In Nursery we are learning to use Makaton signs, particularly when we sing. Makaton is a sign language which was created to be used alongside spoken language, in order to promote communication and language development in babies and young children.
Here are some of the songs and actions that we have been learning.
