Week1

Good morning Nursery!  Welcome to the Nursery's  home learning page.

This is the place where we will post lots of fun things for you to try at home by yourself or with your family members.

Remember to show us all the exciting things you have been doing by posting pictures, videos or comments on the Evidence Me app .

We look forward to seeing all the creative and exciting things you get up to!

Our focus for This week will be looking at Winter, Snow and Ice!

Listen to the story One Snowy Night read by Nick Butterworth.

One Snowy Night - A Percy The Park Keeper story

Here are some questions to  discuss with your family:

 

  • Can you remember who some of the characters are in the story?
  • Where do you think the story is set? 
  • What season is the story set in?
  • How do you know this?
  • Why did the animals knock on the door?
  • Why do you think Percy let the animals into his bed?

 

Here are some more winter stories to enjoy.

Knowledge and Understanding of the World:

How do we make ice?

What would happen if we brought ice inside?

 

Try filling some old containers with water and placing them in the freezer. When they have frozen take them out and tip them into a bowl or tray.

 

  • What does the ice look like?
  • How does it feel?
  • Is it hard or soft? smooth or rough?
  • what happens to the ice if you leave it in the bowl/tray.

Have a go at making a bird feeder to help the birds in these long chilly months!

What you need

You will need:

  • Plastic drinks bottles
  • Drawing pin
  • Wire or string
  • Bird seed
  • Scissors

 

Step-by-step guide

  1. Cut a hole in the side of the bottle large enough to allow a free flow of seeds, but in such a way that it won’t all fall out on the ground in the slightest puff of wind, and won’t get wet if it rains.
  2. Make a few small holes in the bottom of your feeder to allow any rainwater to drain away.
  3. Hang it with wire, or even strong string from a tree or your washing line.
  4. If your feeder starts to wear out or the food in it goes mouldy, recycle it and make another one! Remember to keep your feeders well stocked, especially in winter. Birds come to rely on them and will go hungry if you forget.
