What’s the day today?….

Hello Nursery children,

Can you sing our ‘Hello’ song to your family to find out what today is? Also, can you find a calendar in your home? If so, once you’ve sung our ‘Hello’ song could you find out what the date is too? Did you know that we’re now in a new month and year? See if you can find these out too. 🙂

I hope you all enjoyed your first PE zoom school yesterday, I know I did. It was lovely to see your lovely faces – I miss you all lots!

For our topic today I would like you to create a Polar Bear, you have paper in your packs which you can use and if you have some craft materials in your home maybe you could use those too. Remember to email your Polar Bear pictures to the office as I, Mrs Pollard and Miss Whitmore really like seeing your work.

I have attached a picture of a Polar Bear hand-printing activity. You don’t have to do the same as this, it’s just to give you an idea. Use your imaginations and create your own Polar Bears, what materials will you use?… We can’t wait to see them! 🙂

Challenge – What do Polar Bears like to eat? Once you have researched what they like to eat let me know whether they like the same food as us or not.

Yesterday I asked you to experiment and make your own ice,  I hope you enjoyed completing this challenge. Here are your questions;

What happened to the water you put inside the bowl, food bag or other item?

Did the water have to be put somewhere hot or cold? Can you remember what the appliance is called where you put the water?

What had happened to the water when you checked it?

Had it started to freeze?

What do we call frozen water?

What did the ice feel like, was it hot or cold?

Where else have you seen ice before and why would we see ice outside?

What happened to the ice once you had taken it out of the freezer?

Why do you think the ice started to melt after a while?


Today I would like you to practice counting orally (out loud) 1-3, 1-5, 1-10, 1-15, 1-20.  Grown-ups please don’t push your child if you can see them struggling to count past a certain number. If you focus on practicing to the number they can count up to for this week that would be great!


Please click on the link below which will take you to a sound activity. The idea of this video is for the children to hear the letters in the words being sounded out which we call ‘Fred Talking’. If you have older children who attend our school they’ll be able to explain to their siblings about ‘Fred Talking’ words. For now, I would like the children to be exposed to hearing words being ‘Fred Talked’ to them as this helps them through their learning journey at St Georges.


Challenge – What words can you make with these letters which make a sound?…

h-a-t, c-a-t, m-a-t, f-a-t

Have a great day and I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow when our ‘zoom school’ starts. 🙂
