Learning and Growing Together

Week beginning: 08.02.21

Hello again! We hope you enjoyed having a go at some of the activities we suggested on last week's Home Learning page. We would love to hear all about what you've been doing at home and don't forget to send us some photos too if you get chance!

Craft Activity:

This week we are learning about Chinese New Year. You can find out all about it by clicking here. Why not have a go at making a Chinese rattle drum or a Chinese New Year Dragon!

We're also thinking about Valentine's Day. Would you like to cut out and decorate a heart? You could use crayons, felt tips, tissue paper, material, whatever you have at home!

Physical Activity:

There are lots of different things we can do to practise our fine motor skills so that we develop more control in our hands and fingers. This week we're going to practise our fine motor skills using play dough again. If you don't have any play dough at home, perhaps an adult could make some for you, here's a recipe. Now you're ready to try Dough Disco! Have fun!

We're also going to practise our pencil control. See if you can keep between the lines and follow the path on these worksheets. Remember to try and hold your pencil near the point between your first two fingers and thumb. Let us know how you get on!

Don't forget to do some physical exercise everyday to keep your body fit and healthy! There are so many different ways you can do this - go for a walk, ride your scooter, kick a ball or run around outside. You could also try yoga with JoJo & Gran Gran on CBeebies. Enjoy! 


This week we are thinking about counting and writing numbers.

We often enjoy singing number rhymes at Nursery, can you remember some of them? - 'Five Little Men in a Flying Saucer', '1,2,3,4,5', 'Five Little Ducks'. Maybe you could sing them at home with your brothers or sisters or a grown up. Make sure you do the actions too! Click here for some more counting songs. Which one is your favourite?

Do you think you could have a go at writing some numbers? It's a bit tricky so click here for some number formation sheets to help you. Don't forget to hold your pencil near the point between your first two fingers and thumb. Well done everyone!

We also enjoy watching Numberblocks on cBeebies on iPlayer.


This week we are learning to recognise and write the letters 'o' and 'c'.

Have a go at making your own sound bag using objects around your house. Firstly, find things beginning with 'o'. Pop them in a bag or a spare pillow case. What did you find? An orange? An octopus? Now learn how to write 'o'. You could use felt tips, pencil crayons, chalks or wax crayons on paper, or use your finger in sand or salt.

Later this week you could make a sound bag with things beginning with 'c'. What did you find? A carrot? A cup? A car? Can you think of any other words that begin with 'c'? Now have a go at writing 'c'. Try to hold your pencil near the point between your first two fingers and thumb.

Click here for a letter formation sheet to help you.

Why not try our Phase 1 Phonics activity. An adult will need to fill the toes of socks with some noisy materials (eg. rice, peas, pebbles, marbles, shells, coins etc). You then need to shake each sock and try to guess what is inside! See if you can talk about how the noisy materials feel and what they sound like but no peeking inside the socks! Hope you have fun!

We also enjoy watching Alphablocks on cBeebies on iPlayer.
