Hello Nursery! I hope you have had a good weekend? What did you do? What did you see? Did you go out for a walk or to the park? Start the morning by singing your favourite nursery rhyme – Can you remember all of the rhymes that we have learnt? Choose your favourite rhyme and sing it with your grown-up together with actions 🙂
- Today’s first activity – Go for a walk along the seafront and see what you can see! What colour is the sea? What colour is the sand? Can you see any sea creatures or sand creatures? What can you smell? I would like you to collect 10 pebbles on the beach. Can you count them all? What happens to the number of pebbles if you find two more to add to your collection? How many have you got now? Test your child with different number combinations. See how many they can count and collect 🙂
2. Today’s second activity I would like you to learn this nursery rhyme –
Sally sells seashells by the seashore.
She sells seashells on the seashell shore.
The seashells she sells are seashore shells,
Of that I’m sure.
During this rhyme, I would like you to focus on the pronunciation of the words throughout the rhyme. What sound can you hear in most of the words in this rhyme? Your child should be able to hear the ‘s’ sound. Make the ‘s’ sound with your child verbally – For an extra challenge write the ‘s’ with your child using the correct formation of the ‘s’. Repeat this until they are confident with what you have taught them 🙂
3. The next activity is a physical game – All you will need is a large space and a balloon!
Keep the Balloon Up
Have your child use their hands or half of a pool noodle to keep a balloon afloat. How long can they keep the balloon off the ground?
Skills developed: volleying, striking
Here is a lovely story to share with your child 🙂
Enjoy today’s activities! Speak tomorrow 🙂
