Click here to find out about the home learning that has been happening in nursery. Don’t forget to keep sending pictures, photographs and videos to Evidence Me.
Katy is documenting all your home learning on the working walls in nursery.
As part of our commitment to home learning you will continue to receive a link to our weekly small group story and songtimes.
Click to hear Katy read Jack and the Flum Flum Tree by Julia Donaldson.
Julia Donaldson has written lots of our favourite nursery stories like The Gruffalo, Stickman, Room on the Broom and A squash and a squeeze.
Click here to listen to a slightly longer story called The Troll. Like Jack, Rose and Stu, the troll goes on an adventurous journey.
Julia Donaldson also writes poems and makes up songs. Click here to listen to Julia Donaldson and her husband Malcolm sing “Pull a Funny Face”.
Can you follow along and copy each funny face?
What funny faces can you pull?
When you are brushing your teeth or your hair, take a look in a mirror and pull some funny faces. Which funny face is your favourite?
Click here to see Katy use her story map to make up her own adventure with Jack, Rose and Stu. They might discover a troll!
Click here to play another memory game called “In my sack I’m going to pack”
Play this game with your toys or people in your family.
Could they remember who put what in the sack?
What tricks did you use to try and keep track of who put what in the sack?
Can you add more objects and players to make the game harder?

Katy is using her “puff” to play a game blowing paper fish across a table.
Katy has set you a challenge to see how many fish you can land (catch) in 20 seconds.
You will need a piece of paper, scissors, a straw, something to catch the paper fish (shopping bag, bowl or bucket) a timer (the stop watch setting on your phone is good or someone can count) and lots of “puff”.
How many fish did you catch?
Did someone in your family catch more?
Did anyone catch less?
How could you make the game more difficult?
How could you make it easier for younger brothers/sisters or people who haven’t done this maths challenge before?
Can you find a way to show us who caught the most fish?
Make up a “blowing fish game” based on this maths challenge.
Does your game have different rules?
Are fish worth different points?
Do players have to do different things if they collect a certain number of points?
How do you know who the winner is?
We would love to see your game on Evidence Me.

Grumpy Bear made Katy an information book. This helped her decide what food she was allowed to feed the ducks.
Make a simple information book.
It could be about animals, birds, food, your family or even your favourite toy or T.V. programme.
What information do you want to share with people? (you can ask a grown-up to write this down, or write using your own marks on paper)
What is the title of your book?
What are you going to put on the front cover of your information book? (Grumpy Bear’s front cover was not very exciting!)
Your information book does not have to have words, it could be made entirely from pictures, diagrams or photos.
Should you number your pages? (it helps readers find the information they need)
Do you need a contents page?
Does your information book need a blurb at the back?
How much will your information book cost?
Jack, Rose and Stu found the fruit of the FlumFlum Tree.
Watch the video again and find the part in the story where they find the fruit.
What does it look like?
What do you think it tastes like?
Invent a new fruit. It might be a mixture of fruits you like best or fruits we saw last week in Handas’s Surprise. Perhaps you pass a fruit and veg shop on your walk to give you some ideas. You can always take a look at these pictures:
You can tell a grown-up what it looks like, smells like and tastes like or you might like to draw, paint or make it.
Click here to see Theresa and Naz sing this week’s nursery rhymes and songs…
This week’s science experiment is all about bubbles.
For a really super bubble recipe you will need:
1 litre hot water
250ml washing up liquid
4 tablespoons of Glycerine (this can be bought for £1/2 at the chemist or supermarket)
Stir gently and leave for 24 hours
Click here to see Katy, Natasha and Theresa sail their boats.
They designed and made their boats from recycled materials.
Can you make a boat and sail it in your bath, shower or sink?
Can you put any play people or animals in your boat?
Did it sail off on an adventure? Where did it go?
Grumpy Bear found out about types of bread to make his information book about feeding ducks. He found this “easy-peasy” soda bread recipe. He thought you might like to try and make it.
