This week we are going to continue our winter topic. There will be activities below, as well as the nursery staff reading the children winter stories. Additionally, we are going to be thinking about 2D shapes.
Our main text for the week will be Elmer in the snow. Therefore, there will be Elmer activities for you to download and use. Please keep checking this page for regular updates as the days go by.
Morning nursery parents: below is a video explaining how to use Mini Mash which is part of Purple Mash. Please watch this. There are lots of lovely activities for your child to access on Mini Mash!

Try this powerpoint game so that your child becomes more familiar with everyday sounds and can discriminate between them. Can they make their own sounds around the house using objects, toys and even their own bodies? (When you download it, click on 'enable editing', then 'slide show' then 'from beginning'. Make sure the sounds is on too.)
Below is our play dough recipe. Using play dough will strengthen the muscles in the hand, to assist writing. I have included a video of 'dough disco' that your child could follow using their play dough.

3 cups of flour,
1 1/2 cups of salt,
3 cups of water,

Why not try this science experiment at home. All you need is a yogurt pot other two, some small toys and some water....... and a freezer! Remember to ask a grown up to help you.
When it is snack time at home, why not set up snack for a few of your toys too. You could sit them in a circle on the floor or maybe at a table. I wonder what they would like to eat.
Toys love to listen to stories too. Here you can see a few of the toys at Nursery sitting comfortably in the reading den ready for a story.
