Week 11

Nursery suggested daily timetable week 11.

Continue with the timings on previous timetables if they have been helpful to you and add in the following ‘Learning Times’:







Learning time – Fine Motor

If you are going to reception in September – can you practise writing your name in lowercase letters (not CAPITAL LETTERS). If you are staying in Nursery in September – can you trace over your name (get an adult to write it with a highlighter first).

Squeeze some pegs with your index finger and thumb – can you put the pegs around a bowl or a plate and then take them off again?

Threading! Borrow someone’s shoelaces and see if you can thread them through the holes. Or, get your adult to hole punch some holes into some cardboard so you can thread it.  

Choose one of the fine motor activities from the ideas cards (that were included previously) that you can do using resources you have at home. 

Cut out the shapes to make a ladybird.

Learning time – Maths


Practise putting your toys in, under, around, on, beside, behind, in front of different items. Can you say where you have placed the different items?

Pattern – what patterns can you spot on some of the minibeasts? Which are stripy and which are spotty?

How many legs do the mini beasts have? How many pick two mini beasts and count all of their legs. Draw a spider’s body and see if you can give it the correct amount of legs.

Make some fingerprints on some paper with paint or ink. Give the fingerprints legs and make them into minibeasts. How many minibeasts have you got? How many red ones did you make? How many yellow ones are there?

How many mini beasts can you find in your garden? Can you draw a picture of each one you find and count them up at the end?

Creative Time

Minibeasts. Can you name the minibeasts and say what they are called? Can you spot similarities and differences between them all? Get an adult to read the clue cards out and work out which minibeast it is.


Paint one side of the paper and fold in half, press down and open up to make your own butterfly!

Minibeast sorting – can you sort the minibeasts out. Which have legs and which do not?

Make some salt dough minibeasts and paint them when they have dried out. Which one will you pick?

Check out our class caterpillars on Tapestry. We will post regular photos so that you can track their progress.
