Time 2 Start
Each week several fun activities will be uploaded here for you to access at home with your little one. If you prefer a paper copy please call the Nursery to arrange a time for you to collect a pack.
The children that are at Nursery are learning all about the story 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' have you got that story at home? If you haven't you can click this YouTube link to watch it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=75NQK-Sm1YY. We are learning lots about how a caterpillar changes into a beautiful butterfly. Hopefully we have some lovely Spring weather and we may see some butterflies in our garden.
This week at Nursery we will be strengthening the muscles that are in our hands and fingers as we prepare them for writing later on. We will be doing lots of activities that require us to stretch, pinch, mould and roll resources.
There are lots of celebrations happening this week. At Nursery we will be celebrating Valentines Day and Chinese New Year. Here are some things you can do at home.
At Nursery this week we will be learning and exploring the season Winter. We have had lots of snow so far this year and the children have showed a real interests in exploring ice and weather changes. Hopefully we see some snow or ice this week! Please remember to send in photographs we would love to see them.
There are lots of lovely stories about Winter on YouTube. Here is a link for you to follow WINTER Book Read Aloud | Winter Books for Kids | Baby Book about Winter | Kids Books Read Aloud - YouTube
