4th May

Hello Nursery !


We hope you enjoyed learning all about rockets and space. This week we are going to be looking at buses and reading one of my favourite books. 

Watch the story Naughty Bus by – Jan and Jerry Oke on YouTube .


Key Questions to discuss with your family:


  • What do you think the story might be about?
  • Can you tell your parents what happened in the story?
  • Who do you think is giving and receiving the present?
  • What do you think the present is? What made you think that?
  • Which was your favourite part of the story?
  • Which character did you like the best?
  • If you could go on a bus today where would you like to go?

This week we will begin to introduce the children  to early phonics -letter sounds.

In Nursery we use the Jolly Phonics rhymes and actions to help the children to remember each sound. We will introduce two sounds each week.


This weeks sounds are 'S' and 'A'.


Watch these Jolly phonics videos regularly and practise the songs and actions.

Can you paint or draw your own bus and put your family members in the windows?

If you have some cars , trains or any other wheeled toys have a go at making some prints with the wheels. You can use paint, pens or pencils


Can you use your problem solving skills to think of ways to rescue the bus from a large bucket of water or the bath? How many ways can you think of to get the bus out without using your hands? What equipment or tools could you use? Draw a picture or take a photo and show us on the Nursery Blog.

Can you use some building blocks or recycled materials to build a town your bus or car could drive around?

Here are some transport cards to make a game of snap

Can you place some chairs or stools in a line to create a bus.

Using your family members or toys can you count how many people are on the bus?

If there are 4 people on the bus and one person gets off how many are left on the bus?

Continue adding or taking away different numbers of people or toys on the bus.

How many passengers can you fit on your bus?
