Hello Nursery children!
We hope that you have enjoyed the Easter break and the Easter Bunny brought you plenty of chocolate treats! This half term our topic is Ready, Steady Grow.

NATIONAL LITERACY TRUST
As a response to school closures, National Literacy Trust have developed a comprehensive web portal for parents, to support you during this time. Over the next days, weeks and months they will be updating this as often as they can with new and useful content for parents.
Split up by age group below, you will find ideas and guidance for simple activities that will engage your children at home, while also benefiting their reading, writing and language development.
You'll be able to access free reading and writing resources, audiobooks, videos, competitions and reading challenges. Every resource is available for free, although to access some you may need to create a free account.
Hello Nursery Classes, hope you are all taking care at home working your way through your learning packs.
As a daily exercise task I’d like you to take a spring walk and see how many treasures you can find on my treasure hunt page – maybe you could draw or paint some on the things you find.
Can you remember our Magic Beans game? Perhaps you could teach your siblings or your grown ups all the actions to help keep you all active. All the actions are on the attached pages.
Please practice our Zero the Hero song and remember the actions too.
Our new topic is going to be Amazing Animals. We’ll be looking at minibeasts. I wonder if you can colour each part of these beautiful creatures on the pages using the correct colours by finding the numbers and choosing the colours to match?
Maybe some of you could challenge yourselves by trying the addition colour by numbers sheet.
As we have been having such beautiful weather I’ve added an activity for you to create Sun Catchers all from things you can find around the home.
Remember to look at books with you grown ups, talk about the characters and try to guess what might be happening next in the story.
Keep practicing your name writing and other letters and shapes – I challenge you to write smaller and smaller with each try – imagine you are a teeny tiny minibeast when doing your writing and mark making.
