Good Morning Nursery!

This week we are thinking about the story Farmer Duck. Another one of our favourites, we love the illustrations, especially those chickens with the floofy legs, check it out!

Knowledge & Understanding of the World/Topic: Farmer Duck Get any farm animals out and use boxes to make the buildings if you do not have them. Make a small world and re-play Farmer Duck’s story or make up your own. What are your favourite animals on the farm? What sounds so they make? What adventures are they going to have today?

Don’t forget you can make an origami book or a zig zag book and make your own Farmer story up.

While you are out and about be on the lookout for feathers, when you find one, try to be a nature detective and figure out which bird left it behind. Here is a brief guide and an ace game Feather Frenzy to play from the RSPB.

Mathematics Count on and back through 20. Look at the animals you have in your farm, group them, order them and count them to see how many of each type you have. Can you keep a tally? We have added some cut and stick Maths sheets to do with Numbers in today’s Home Learning.

Story Time: Jez Alborough has written some ace books, here are two and a film of him drawing that is very interesting.Hugo the Hare's Rainy Day,  Billy the Goat's Big Breakfast , Jez Alborough draws Nat the Cat

Phonics Play: watch and join in with this Alphablocks episode today. Collect a plate of things that begin with ‘D’ from around the house and play Kims Game with them. Maybe using last week’s playdough make the letters SATPIN in dough and trace them with your fingers.

This is the Barefoot Books lovely Mindful Moment for this week, perfect to finish your Monday learning.

Hope you are all having fun and don’t forget to look for feathers when you are out today? Speak tomorrow.
