Snack Time zoom- PJ Party! – 10:30am

No need to get ready for today's catch up - keep your pyjamas on and be ready to tell everyone about your week!


(10 minutes)

Find 6 of your favourite toys, e.g. a plastic doll, a superhero, a bear, a toy dog, a dinosaur and plastic troll, trying to make sure they are all different sizes. Stand them up and put them in order from the shortest to the tallest.
Is the biggest one in the line-up the biggest toy you own? How big is the biggest toy you own? What could you use to measure it?



Today is the last day of our ‘people who help us’ topic.

Think about the people that you know and the people who help you (Mums and Dads, Grandparents, shop assistants, headteacher, post man!)
Make a thank you card for one special person that helps you and makes you smile!

Ask a grown up to keep a list so you can show us on dojos!

Good luck!



Have you ever seen a lollypop man/lady?

What is their job?
Why is it important?

My challenge for you today is to make a lollypop man/lady’s stop sign out of things you can find in your house!

This might be a good time to get the playdough out (recipes are in your home learning packs!)

Make sure you send me your hard work on dojos!

Physical Development-

Put your favourite music on and have a dance!
Can you move in different ways?
* slithering
* shuffling
* rolling
* crawling
* walking
* running
* jumping

If the music is slow and quiet, try moving slowly. Quick loud music means quicker dancing!

A chance to have a little bit of fun with your friends!
Hopefully Miss Blyth can send out the correct link today (should be the same one as yesterday!)

George had a great day at school painting his favourite toy.
Can you draw/paint your favourite thing to do at school?

Can’t wait to see your masterpieces on dojos!



Find somewhere cosy (or really cool like a den!) and ask someone at home to read your favourite story with you.
Can you help them turn the pages carefully and hold the book the right way up?

Tell your grown up why you like the story.

Hope everybody is staying safe and well!
If there is anything we can do to support you during this challenging time, please let me know.

Snack Time Zoom - 10:30am

We are going to do a live zoom (link will be sent on dojos) every day at 10:30am. This will give us all the chance to catch up, have a chat and a small bit of 'normality'!


(10-15 minutes)

Sing as loud as you can!
Extra dojos for anyone that manages to get a family member involved!

Everyone should have a copy of the number formation sheet in their home learning packs, they look like this:

If you’ve already used it or misplaced it, don’t worry! Your grown ups can write them out for you and you can copy/write over the top in a different colour.


(15 minutes – or longer if you’re having fun!)

This week we are carrying on with our ‘people who help us’ topic!
Today you are the teacher!

Here are some ideas:

* Read a story to the people in your class (your family at home)
* Role play!
* Teach your family something you enjoy (could be counting, about an animal/your favourite thing or even some games!)
* Practise writing your name (you could even add a ‘Miss’ or ‘Mr’ if you want a full ‘teacher name’!)


I am always available on dojos – please do not hesitate to contact me!

Miss Johnson and I will do snack time zooms daily at 10:30am where the children can catch up, have some fun and see their friends.

We would love to see how you’re getting on at home with your learning so please send us pictures/videos on dojos and we will be giving out lots of dojos in return!

Stay safe!






All pupils in Nursery have been offered a place in line with government guidance. Therefore we will not be producing home learning packs for pupils who are not accepting their place. You can of course follow the links below for support at home. 


Some practical ideas/resources and a homework booklet have been left outside the school office for those choosing to keep their children at home - please only pick up between 9:30am-2:30pm.













Reading is everything. Read as much as you can at home.

Children are to read from their own reading book or download and read a free e-book from Oxford Owls- parents will be contacted with the correct Oxford Level for their child.















Here are some ideas for literacy including some phase two phonics activities.
