Mark Making

If you are beginning to do so please remember to practise to copy the letters in your name. For everyone else, please practising drawing anticlockwise circles and lines with pencils, crayons, chalk, sand and a stick, paint or water and paintbrushes. This helps us to develop our muscles so that we can begin to write when we are ready.

Talk Time

This week's Talk Time is all about our favourite things. Talk to your grown-up about all of the different activities that you can do at Nursery and what your favourite one is eg painting, Lego, PE, playdough. Try to use the sentence starter "my favourite thing at Nursery is..." or "I like...".

  • Can you make a quiet noise?
  • Can you tap the pans/pots in a repeated rhythm?
  • Can you make different noises by tapping different parts of the pans/pots?
