Hello, I will be posting activities for Nursery Children daily. I've chosen activities where it should be easy to find the things you'll need at home.
Early years is about play and discovery and while there are some 'sitting at work' activities I've tried to make things active and involved in the hope the children will enjoy the experiences. Let me know if this is too much or two little for them. All play has some value and if they are deeply involved in an activity you can let them carry on until their body language tells you they are finished. For this reason I haven't put a time scale to the activities. In Nursery they would move around the activities.
If you have siblings to help aswell. I hope you can fit the activities around the schedule that works for the siblings. I would advise you try to have a routine in the day. Then you can say 'Time to do some counting or First counting socks then snack'. You can email me any questions on MissWigmore@christtheking.reading.sch.uk and post pictures on Tapestry for me to respond to.

Ask your child to tell you what happens first (if they can remember). Join in the repeating lines. Talk about the story with them – did you like it? Would you like that farmer?
Go on a sound walk outside - what can they hear? (maybe Birds, aeroplanes, lawnmowers and cars.)
Maths - counting
Count socks and pants in their drawer – make small groups by colour and count again. Encourage them to point and say the number at same time. Line up the socks to get the count right. Which colour do they have more of? What can they tell you about the socks? Can you pair them together to put them away. Put with socks the same.
Looking at pictures on the webpage. Try to be different animals in yoga poses. Stretch some muscles. Use this to break up the other work a little.
