Week 8

Nursery suggested daily timetable week 8.

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







9.15-9.30am Learning time – Fine Motor

Pencil control sheets – can you make sure you use the tripod grip to trace the lines on the pencil grip activity cards?

 Can you colour the British wildlife? What colour should they be? Can you find a photo of them online and keep their colours as accurate as you can?

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

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).

Cut out the hedgehog and peg on some clothes pegs to give him some spikes! 

9.30-9.50am Learning time – Maths


Identify and colour the shapes on the pizza. Can you match the shapes to shapes you can see around your home? Or, for a big challenge, could you draw your own shape pizza? Draw the shapes your adult says – square, circle, triangle and rectangle.

Play a board game with your adult. Be careful to count the correct number of spaces. Can you identify how many spots are on the dice without counting them? Can you use two dice to make it trickier?

Practise your preposition. Find your favourite teddy and ask an adult to give you directions: on, in, under, over, around, next to, in front of, behind, above, through… Can you then ask your adult to follow your directions and place the teddy where you have described?

Do your creative activity first today and then come back to the maths.

Compare the size of your footprint to someone else’s. Can you find something in your house that is longer than your foot? Shorter than your foot? Or the same length as your foot?

Use your hedgehog to count. How many spikes did you give him? How many would he have if you took two off? How many would he have if you gave him one more? Ask your adult to give you different challenges.

9.50-10.30am Creative Time

Take part in the RSPB ‘Wild’ challenge!

Can you name the animals in the British Wildlife pictures? Have you seen any of them before? You could look online and find your own photos. Which is your favourite animal? Why?


Find some things around your house that you could use to collage the owlets. Cotton wool would work well!

Get an adult to cut the pictures in half and see if you can match the animals to their footprints. You could even make your own footprints – you could make water prints outside on the concrete or you could be brave and use paint and paper!

Have another go at making some playdough. Can you make another colour this time? You could even add some glitter if you wanted!

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.
