Hello and welcome to our Nursery School Class page.

 

This page will be updated daily with a challenge to work on with your children at home throughout the school closures.  

Don't forget to e-mail what you have been doing to office@longshawnursery.blackburn.sch.uk, we would love to hear what you have been up to.

Harry and his dinosaurs go to School

Still image for this video
In this book Harry goes to school for the first time. Are you looking forward to going to school? Talk to your adult at home about what you think school might be like.

We have been looking around the natural environment. There are lots of colours and textures everywhere. Take a look at the photographs, can you name the colours of the flowers and the plants? Can you tell where the textured patterns are from?

Have a look for colours and textures next time you are in the yard or garden, or when you go for a walk.

Listen to Miss Holden telling the story.
Can you guess which animal is next and then why it needs to go back?
What would be your perfect animal?

Making a card

Miss Holden and her girls made some lovely cards for Father's Day. Why not have a go at making a card for a special person? It could be a dad, grandad, brother, uncle or friend, or anyone who is special to you.

You could use handprints or footprints and paint, just like Miss Holden's girls have done.

The cress is almost ready to eat!

The cress has grown again and it is almost ready to eat. You can eat cress in a salad or on a sandwich. What do you like to eat?

The cress is growing!

Look how fast the cress is growing. We are keeping it watered and on the sunny window sill. Why not have a go at home?

Growing cress

In nursery school we have planted some cress seeds and will be watching them grow this week. If you'd like to try this at home you will need:

Plastic tub, pot or cup

Cress seeds

Cotton wool

Water

Simply add cotton wool to fill half of your pot, water it and sprinkle in your cress seeds. Keep the seeds damp and in a light area such as a window sill and they will grow.

We will add photographs of the growing cress each day.

 

Big and Small

Claire's children have been looking at BIG and SMALL. They had a look around the house to find things that are big and small. Have a look at the pictures to see what they found. Perhaps you could have a go at finding things at your house that are big and small.

Can you make a castle in the sky?

Ask an adult to help you to make a castle for a giant just like Miss Cunningham has done in the picture above. 

You will need are some blocks, some water and some soap in a washing up bowl, tray or bucket.

Build your castle using blocks for the walls and towers. 

With the help of an adult add some water and soap to a washing up bowl and make it frothy with your hands for the clouds.

 

Can you make a beanstalk?

Miss Cunningham has been using paint to make beanstalks. What has she used to make the pattern on the stalk?  Could you try this at home?

Here are some from Nursery

Which is the tallest beanstalk?

Can you build a tower as tall as the beanstalk in the story?

Can you talk about a story like Claire did? Can you work out who are the characters, where the story is set, what the problem is and what happens to sort it out?
Perhaps you could use one of the stories from our website and have a go at home.
