Foundation Stage (Nursery)
Hi Nursery, here are some challenges for you to be trying while you’re at home. I can’t wait to hear all about them!
I hope you are all OK and not missing school too much! Miss Marshall is trying to keep busy and looking out for any fun activities you can do at home while you’re off. I will keep this page updated regularly so keep checking!
Parents/ Carers, remember you can keep up to date with school twitter page. This is also updated with lots of activities you can do with your children while they’re off.
Twinkl has lots of activities you can print for your child. They are offering this free for one month. You can access this by clicking on the link below and creating an account. The code is UKTWINKLHELPS.
You can print any resources that you think your child will enjoy. Twinkl also have a range of challenge cards for children that you do not necessarily need to print.
Harper Collins is giving free access to its online learning platform, Collins Connect, for the length of the school closures. There are some lovely books you can read together. These books are interactive and have music alongside the stories.

Books include the ‘big cat bookshelf’. Although we are not yet reading words in Nursery, you can still read these books with your child.
- Look at the front cover and talk about what you think the book might be about
- Talk about the characters in the story
- Read the words for children and point to each word as you read
- Ask lots of questions- Who is in the story? What might happen next? What might happen at the end? Did you like this story? Why?
Joe Wicks is now streaming daily PE sessions at 9am Monday- Friday. I will be joining in with these to stay fit and healthy!
Use the Top Marks website to play interactive maths games. My favourites include ‘Teddy Numbers’ and ‘Ladybird spots’. In school we have been learning numbers up to 10. We have been practicing counting and saying how many, and matching numeral to quantity.
In school we have been taking part in Phase 1 Phonics sessions daily. This helps us develop our listening skills. Games can be found on the link below.
What else can I work on at home?
We follow the EYFS framework to plan specific activities for your child. We are currently working on activities in ’30-50’ month age band. Please see the word document below which has lots of ideas of activities you can do with your child at home.
As well as this page, children were also given a home learning pack to take home. If your child was absent then you can collect this from school when it is possible to do so. Remember, Nursery is also all about playing and having fun and I look forward to hear what exciting activities you have been doing at home when you come back to school.
Speak to you all very soon!
Keep safe and well,
