Good Morning Nursery!

This week we are thinking about Vets: People who help Us. I love the Hairy Maclary Story Rumpus at The Vets!

Knowledge & Understanding of the World/Topic: Vets  What jobs do Vets do? What pets do you have? If you don’t have pets don’t worry. What creatures do you have living in your garden? Maybe you could role-play being a Vet in your home with your toys?

Mathematics Count on and back through 20. Paint some by using finger-prints for petals, how many petals can you make for each flower? Can you do a flower for each number to 20?

Story Time: Here is a great Vet story from Oxford Owl Paula the Vet and here is a film about being a Vet.

Phonics Play: watch and join in with this Aphablocks episode today. Collect a plate of things that begin with ‘P’ from around the house and play Kims Game with them.

Barefoot Books are also doing a lovely Mindful Moment perfect to finish your Monday learning.

Hope you are all having fun and don’t forget to look in your outside space to see what is living out there? Speak tomorrow.

Morning! I hope yesterday was fun!

Communication and Language Development; Make a zig –zag book of what your pet or an imagined pet would need. Draw and write. Here is a short film about what pets need. I have added the Out of The Ark song in this week's Home Learning, it is a nice one for today and has activities too.

Physical Development: Play a vigorous mime /charades game where you act out being an animal with your family. Here is a Finger Play song for People Who Help Us. I have also included some Pencil Control sheets in Home Learning section with the People Who Help Us theme.

Knowledge & Understanding of the World/Topic: People who help us: Vets  So you want to be a Vet from the National Geographic. Can you make up a poster advertising for a Vet, what skills do you think they need? It is important to remember People who Help us, listen to this easy song and sing along! What would you like to be when you grow up? There are some writing frames for you to plan on.

Expressive Arts & Design:  Make a picture up of all the people who help you in your life. You can make a chain of people like this. Here is a lovely song to go with this activity. There are some card designs to download and write, or make your own to Thank the people who help you. You could send some in the post.

Story time: Here is Mog at the V.E.T.S. read by the Cats Protection League staff. Don’t forget to check out the Ethnic Diversity Service section under the Bee buttons in Home Learning. There are lots of countries you can 'visit' and some great videos to help you make things, plus lots of support materials. 

Have fun being a Vet and looking for minibeasts today!

Hello Nursery!

How are you all this morning? I hope you have been enjoying the thinking about ‘People who help us’ and in particular Vets. We are also going to keep thinking about The Tiny Seed learning too.

Communication and Language Development; Please revisit the Phonics learning from last week and also look at the Phonics Play website Picnic On Pluto .

Literacy: You can use the Parts of a Plant sheets. This is print ‘that carries meaning’. Therefore, you can play games, look for parts of a plant in the environment and maybe stick them to the blanks to make your own Plant Match cards.

Mathematics; Today we are going to look for Shapes in our house. You can trace round different shaped objects, then hide them and have fun seeing if your family can find the shape that matches the outline ( like this game). There are also some resources in today’s Home Learning section. Do not forget to check out White Rose Maths for Early Years.

Story time; The Smartest Giant in town- such a kind story, perfect for these times.

Physical Development: I am sure you are all enjoying your walks and this week you will get to go more. How about checking on the activities suggested by the Woodland Trust (Part 2 here ) or collecting materials to make a nature paint brush?

Knowledge and Understanding of the World: Looking at how we can use things from Nature (to make Paintbrushes) Also what about your food scraps? What plants can you grow? Try Carrot tops & avocado seeds? I think I may have written about this before, but I still think it is pretty cool! Growing veg from Kitchen scraps

Reflection: How did you feel today? Use your EMOJI STONES to check in and think about how you feel before and after doing and activity. There is a lovely pack of Mindful Nature activities in today’s section for you.

Have a lovely day!

Thursday 7th May


I hope you are enjoying all of the learning suggestions, don’t forget you can email on admin@didsburyroad.stockport.sch.uk if you have any further questions or want to let us know what you are doing!

I am enjoying seeing what you are all up to, don’t forget you DO NOT have to do everything, just judge what you and your child need or want to do.

Physical Development: this week we have made playdough, this is great for strengthening those hands for writing. We added lavender essential oils and lavender seeds to make it calming and therapeutic. Just make your own mix, this is a great recipe here (but don’t worry about glycerine if you don’t have it).

Communication and Language Development;

Mathematics: Positional Language; make a Vet themed roleplay and use positional language to describe where the animals are. There are some good ideas on this blog post.

Creativity: We used oats this week to make these simple biscuits. There was a dry mix and a mix you melt to add in. This is a great change to observe changing states of materials. They taste good too!

Music:  Family Saturday song is lovely: I heard a Blackbird Singing Can you make a sound shaker using seeds and practice making sounds using it. Fast/Slow/ Loud/ Quiet?


Reflection; I know I post this every week but I do this myself and find it really helps. Building in a daily reflection is a great way of checking in on your child’s feelings. It lets them express themselves independently. Are you regularly listing three things to be grateful for at the end of a day?

Do not forget to clap at 8pm tonight for the NHS.

Have a gorgeous day,

Miss Brewerton & Mrs Poole

Friday 15th May

Dear Nursery,

Morning! What are your plans today? Today in school, we are making Finnish Cinnamon ‘Ear’ Buns and Pinwheels and colouring.  

Physical Development: Go Noodle have some great movement inspiration, here is an animal themed one for this week, enjoy…unfortunately it is very addictive…I now have a A Moose Chacha earworm!!!

Communication and Language Development & Literacy Development: There is a brilliant way to make an origami book and I have included the instructions in today's section. Make one …or more and just fill them with whatever you want to write. Drawings and then writing about your drawings is a good way to get going and don’t forget to start adding some of those sounds and letters we have been practicing in Phonics.

Mathematics: There are some ‘cut & stick maths sheets’ in today’s section on Home Learning, to practise all the counting you have been doing. Using scissors is a great skill too!

Lunch Prep; Fruity Friday! Watch Handa’s Surprise while eating fruit that you might have prepared yourself!

Reflection: How about a spot of Forest Bathing and listening to the Flowers on your next walk?

Well done! You and your family have done your FOURTH week of Summer Term Home Learning! I hope you are all really proud of yourselves and have wonderful weekend! By the way look on the website Look under Pupils: Home Learning: Video Centre for a nice message from all the staff here at DRPS! Look out for Mrs Kaur and her baby!
