We have enjoyed reading Elmer. Can you find out some facts about elephants? You could create your own poster or draw and label an elephant. Can you create some elephant art work?

Nursery Learning


Today we are continuing to learn about the number 1. Can you have a toy picnic. Give each toy 1 plate, 1 cup, 1 spoon maybe even 1 bun! Can you draw a picture of your picnic and upload it onto EExAT?

Now have a listen to this song about a teddy bear’s picnic. Can you join in with the singing?

And here it is in the form of a story…

You may have heard this story before but it is one of my favourites!

Physical Development

Practise using scissors—Find some pictures to cut out of magazines and catalogues. Remember to hold them with your thumb through one space and two fingers through the other.


Children begin to recognise their names and logos before they begin to recognise individual letters. Support your child to look in newspapers, magazines and catalogues for any advertising logos they recognise. They could practise their cutting skills by making a collage with some of the logos they recognise. When you are out and about ask them if they can tell you which logos they know, most children will recognise ‘Asda’!

In the latest learning pack you will find a pair of listening ears. Support your child to cut them out and attach them to a band. Can they go around the house listening for different sounds?
