Learning at home
Friday 3 April 2020
Good morning St Nicholas children and parents! I hope everyone is being safe.
This is the last day of the Spring term! The next time I will be posting work on here will be on Monday 20th April (if schools are not reopened).
Enjoy these fun Easter activities today and have a lovely Easter break :)
*If you require an exercise book or pencil, please see Ms Talabi in the school office.

Go on an Easter egg hunt:
Play a few Easter online games:
If you can, do some cooking today! Here is a recipe for some Easter nests:
You can also add some mini Easter eggs in the middle of your finished product! :)
Children’s interest learning:
What would you like to do today? You could build something out of Lego, role play or dress up, play with cars or dolls, make and use play dough etc.
- Read a story. Talk about what happened in the book and your favourite part. Below is a site where you can read books online
- Phonics - learn the set 1 sounds below
- Extension: Children going into Reception in the next academic year - practice writing your name. Use a name prompt to look at and form the letters
Expressive Arts and Design:
Can you create a springtime picture using natural materials?
30 day art challenge. How many of these can you complete?
- Try and get outside even if it’s in your backyard or patio. Enjoy the sun and get active - walk or run, ride a bike/scooter, practice throwing and catching etc.
- Try and do some Fitt-In today. Ask your adult to fill in their details on this link -
You can then do Fitt-In videos every day!
Please make sure you have enough room when doing it.
I hope you have a lovely day!
Checklist - things to bring to the Nursery:
Borrowing reading books - every Tuesday
The Nursery room has a selection of books that the children are able to borrow and engage with at home. This is to encourage a love of reading and develop early literacy skills.
This term, we have a special soft toy, Jacob the Jaguar. Each Friday, one child will take home Jacob and write and draw about what they did with Jacob on the weekend. Photos can also be printed and stuck into the book provided. On Monday the child will have the chance to share what they did with Jacob with the other children.
Our topic this half term is "Growth and change"
We will be investigating how plants, animals and people grow and change over time. We will do this through real life observation, reading books, watching videos and through various play experiences including imaginative play and sensory play.
