Thursday 11th June

Good morning, the last day of our first week back in Nursery for some of you, we hope you have enjoyed being back with some of your friends even if things are a little bit different.


Carrying on with our theme of 'Being healthy and Staying Safe'  here are a few ideas for today and then some Maths and Phonics.



You will often hear people talking about your '5 a day' so I would like you to try and paint a picture of 5 fruit or vegetables that you enjoy.  If you are feeling really adventurous have a look at the picture below by a Arcimboldo who painted pictures made up out of fruit and vegetables.



'Cool' Activity - cut a long piece of string and then go on a hunt around the house to see what you can measure with that piece of string.  Are there some things longer than the piece of string, are there some things shorter?  Pick two things you have measured and then draw a picture to show one being the longest and one the shortest.


'Hot' Activity - How did you get on with learning the big hand and the small hand?  First of all have a look at the short film below - can you keep up and answer all the times, the rhythm of the song will help you.  Then have a game of 'What's the time Mr Wolf' or try the worksheet.

How to play 'What's the time Mr Wolf?'


One child is chosen to be Mr Wolf, who then stands at one end of the playing area.

The other players stand in a line at the other end.

Mr Wolf turns his back to commence play.

The players call out, "What's the time Mr Wolf?" and Mr Wolf turns and answers with a time (i.e. 3 o'clock).

He then turns his back again while the children advance again chanting "What's the time Mr Wolf?" To which Mr Wolf will continue to respond until the players come very close.

Once the line of players is close to Mr Wolf, he can respond to the chant with "It's dinner time!" at which point, he will chase the players back to the starting line with the aim to catch one of the them, who will then become Mr Wolf for the next round of the game.



'Cool' Activity - Listen to the story 'I will not ever never eat a tomato'.  What did you enjoy about the book? Have you ever changed you mind and decided you actually like a food which you didn't like before? 


'Hot' Activity - this week we have learnt the 'l' sound so just to practice there is a work sheet below to complete words beginning with 'l'.  If you can't print you can just copy out.
