Nursery Home Learning Page

Hello! This is your final home learning page for the summer term. Thank you so much for all the hard work you have done since we began in April. It has been lovely to keep in touch and to see all your home learning on Purple Mash and on our class email. We have missed you all, have a lovely summer and we hope to see you all again in September.              

Week beginning: 13th July 2020

Early Years Daily Routine and Activities

Here is a more structured routine while your child is at home. Bear in mind that this is just suggested - the key to success is being flexible and finding a routine that works for you. REMEMBER, play is still the most valuable thing you can do with your child and your child will constantly be learning through play.


The weeks can you explore the maths and letters activities – there are lots to choose from, let me know which ones you enjoy!


Keep on exploring Purple Mash! When you log on, look at the right hand side of the screen.Scroll down the feature menu and click on to the Weekly Activities (3-5). Choose a week that you have not looked at so far, is the text fiction or non-fiction?You can then follow the daily activities for your choosen text.

We are not setting any 2Do’s as I would like you to choose the activities that you like and challenge your self to try and complete the next level.  



Can you watch this episode of numberblocks:-

It looks at numbers 0-10 – how many numbers do you recognise?

Keep practicing writing your numbers 0-10 in your home learning book and keep practising with your counting.

Sorting – Can you collect groups of 10? How many different sets of 10 can you make – you might want to collect socks, spoons, cups, toys – remember your careful counting and touch each object as you count.



This week I have chosen a story called Kipper at the Seaside.

The author is Nick Inkpen                                       

Listen to the story with your grown up and tell them which part you liked best.



Did you like the story? If you did ask your grown up to find you some more stories about Kipper.

Writing activities

Please could you make a list of all the items you would need to take to the beach to have a really good day out.

I have started you off,



Can you add a few more items to the list?


Draw a fantastic sandacastle town,decorate it with flags,shells and stones.



Design an ice cream parlour menu.

How many different kinds of ice cream and toppings can you put on your menu.






Letters – We are still continuing to practice our phase 2 sounds, however we are now going to try to write the sounds.  When we learn to write we write in a cursive format – every letter starts on the line with a curl and leaves a flick at the end of the letter – below is an example of how we write the letters:-




We have covered practicing writing all our phase 2 sounds, continue to practice writing your name, remembering every letter starts on the line and finishes with a flick – try writing them in the air first using your magic finger – don’t forget to give it a wiggle and a blow to make it magic! Can you have a go at writing some other cvc words, like dog, cat, mat, sat, log etc

Also on Purple Mash there are phonics games to play – finding the initial (starting) sound.



This week in school we are choosing our favourite Jumpstart Jonny activities and making them into a daily routine.



  • Look at these emoji faces, what do you think they show?
  • Talk about them with your adult.
  • Can you think of a time when you felt like each emoji?
  • Design your own happy emoji-when did you feel like this?
  • What were you doing to make you feel like this?


We hope that you have fun with these activities,have a super summer holiday,take care and keep safe. See you soon.  

from Mrs Mellor, Mrs Holmes and Mrs Chatfield
