Nursery

Hello Nursery,

I hope you’ve had a great half term holiday.  The weather has been lovely hasn’t it?  I’ve been wondering how many of you have been out in your gardens in your paddling pools and how many of you have been having water fights with your families!  

I hope you enjoy the activities this week and look forward to seeing what you have been doing.

Keep safe,

Love from Mrs Champion xxxxx

Here is the letter from last week if you didn’t get chance to read it.

Dear Nursery

Week beginning 01.06.2020

Literacy

Our story this week is The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. Click on the link below to watch the film and listen to the story.

When you have watched the film can you tell your parent/carer which part of the story you liked best? Were there any parts you didn’t like? Which foods was your favourite in the story? Were there any foods that you didn’t like?

When you’ve done that why not have a go at some of these activities? Please email me any photos or videos of what you have done.

Can you think of some other foods that The Very Hungry Caterpillar might like to eat? Try drawing the different foods or maybe even find them in your house and put them on a plate for him if you’re allowed to.

Can you re-tell the story to your parent/carer or even to your toys? I’m sure they would really enjoy listening to you. You could make up different foods for the caterpillar to eat in your story if you wanted to.

Maths

“On Monday he ate through 1 apple.

On Tuesday he ate through 2 pears.

On Wednesday he ate through 3 plums.

On Thursday he ate through 4 strawberries.

On Friday he ate through 5 oranges.”

Practice counting up to 5 and then 10 on your fingers again. Can you do it   s-l-o-w-l-y and quickly?

With the help of your parent/carer can you find some things for The Very Hungry Caterpillar to eat on each day?  Remember 1 thing for Monday, 2 for Tuesday, 3 for Wednesday, 4 for Thursday and 5 for Friday.  Don’t forget to send me a picture of what he is going to eat!

Once you have done that here are two challenges for you……..

Challenge 1 Can you learn to say the days of the week in the right order? Click on the link for a song to help you.

Challenge 2 Can you write the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5?  If you find it difficult just try to write number 1 and number 4.

Creative

Why not have a go at making the Very Hungry Caterpillar out of an egg box or if you really want to get messy you could make the Very Hungry Caterpillar using finger printing. Click on the link below to find out how to make the caterpillar.

Here is another idea for a page in your booklet if you would like to do this.  Make a page of handprints of everyone in your house that you have spent lockdown with.  Andrew and I drew round our hands, cut them out and then decorated them using felt tip pens.  You could use paint, felt tip pens, pencils or crayons to do your prints. 

Cultural Capital – Burj Khalifa

The Burj Khalifa is the tallest building in the world. It is almost 830 metres tall and was built in Dubai. Here is a picture of it and the view from the top of it. Do you think you would like to go to the top and look out across the city?

Using anything you can find at home can you build the tallest tower that you can? You could use Lego, bricks, boxes, cushions.  Can you make it as big as you or as big as your parent/carer?  Have fun!

Challenge

Why not have a go at making a Very Hungry Caterpillar snack? Have a look at these pictures for ideas.

I tried to make one too. I used cucumber for the body, a slice of tomato for the head, some apple for the antennae and slices of green grapes and blueberries for the eyes.

Once you’ve made them don’t forget to send me a picture and enjoy eating them!

If you would to why not ask your parent/carer to help you log in to PurpleMash.com and explore some of the activities on there.  I’ll have a look and see what you have been enjoying doing.
