Building a Brighter Future

20th April

Hello Nursery!


We miss seeing your smiling faces each morning  and we hope you and your families are all keeping safe and well.


Over the next few weeks we will be focusing on the topic of 'Transport'.


Each week we will focus on a different type of transport through a popular story and we will add some fun activities which will link to our theme.


We hope you have lots of fun!


For this week we are going to be looking at Boats.




Mr. Gumpy

This video is about Mr. Gumpy

Key Questions:


  • Can you name some of the characters in the story?
  • Do you know any other songs or stories about boats?
  • Can you find some books with boats in on YouTube or on your bookshelf?
  • Can you remember the order that the animals  climbed into Mr Gumpy’s boat?

Try some of these creative activities:


  • Can you make a model of Mr Gumpy's boat using Lego, paper or an old margarine tub?
  • Try exploring with different objects. What things can you find that float?   What objects will sink?
  • Can you draw or paint some of the animals from the story?
  • Can you use your toys, farm animals or pictures to order the sequence the animals went into the boat?

Practise singing this popular song.
