Week 12

Nursery suggested daily timetable week 12.

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

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 caterpillar body parts and glue them together. You can use split pins if you have them!

Help your adult to make you some playdough. Can you use the muscles in your fingers to make sure that the ingredients are properly mixed and the dough is kneaded well?

Practise drawing a person – make sure you include the head, nose, eyes, ears, mouth, torso, legs, feet, arms, hands and any other details you would like to add!

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).

Learning time – Maths


Colour the mini beasts by number – ask an adult to assign a colour to each number.

Play a board game with someone – make sure you concentrate and pay attention for when it’s your turn. Count the spaces carefully and move your counter to the correct place.

Make some playdough and make the body parts for each of the mini beasts.

If you are feeling up to a challenge – make a mini beast hotel in your garden (see the attached sheet for ideas or look on Google if you prefer). Keep a log of which insects you see and how many legs they all have!

Creative Time

Can you follow the actions on the mini beast action cards? Flutter like a butterfly!

Can you go for a walk and tick off all of the bugs you find on the list. Which was your favourite. Why do you like that one?

Choose one of the mini beast pictures and select things from around the house to make a collage. Or, find things that are different textures and paint them. Can you wheel a car through black paint and use it to paint the spider? What else could you use?

Have a look at the caterpillar pictures on Tapestry. Have they changed from last week? What do you think will happen to them? Read the story of ‘They Very Hungry Caterpillar’ and talk about what happens. If you don’t have the book, have a look at this one:

Can you make a picture of the lifecycle of a butterfly? What are the four stages? You could paint them, draw them, collage them, make them with playdough or find pictures from the internet/magazines. (Please see the Life Cycle sheet for reference.)

1.30-2.00pm Learning Time

Choose one of the activities from your pack/Project Passport to work on – if you have run out, please check the website for more.
