Nursery Home Learning

In the Early Years learning through play and real experiences is a crucial part of the curriculum. This is why many of the home learning suggestions for Nursery will be more practical. There is no expectation for children to complete every activity and there is certainly no expectation for parents to purchase any additional resources for home learning. Please make use of any toys and resources that you have in your home environment. 

If you have any questions, please email nursery@geoffreyfieldinfant.reading.sch.uk

Additional Learning Suggestions:

 

 Draw shadows of toys such as dinosaurs, cars, animals

 

Do some junk modelling using items from home. Explore different ways to join materials and different effects that you can add for decoration. 

Ice cream shop role play: 

Make some ice creams using resources at home such as paper, toilet roll tubes, pom poms, wool, tissue paper. 

Then see if you can make a display stand using an old cardboard box. 

Encourage your child to think of what the flavours of ice cream are, and for a challenge see if your child can match an appropriate flavour to the colour of ice cream (e.g. lime for green). 

When role playing, ask and encourage language around number - Can I have 2...? Can I have 1 more? 

 

 

 

Imaginative art:

Find a stick from your garden. Then decorate it by wrapping any spare thread or wool that you have. You could also thread on any buttons or other objects you have spare around the house.
