Sunflower Nursery

Our Topic for the Summer Term is:
All about Bears

Whilst school is closed you may like to try some of the following activities with your child:

• Share a book: Read as many books and stories about bears that you have available to you.
Encourage them to look at the illustrations and talk about what is happening in the story. Don’t
forget to record it in your home/school book. There are some lovely stories available to watch and
listen to at:

• Sing songs and action rhymes: There are lots of favourites to choose from such as: If you’re
happy and you know it clap your hands, Heads, shoulders, knees and toes, Twinkle, Twinkle, little
Star and perhaps you could sing some about bears too such as Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear turn
around and Teddy Bears Picnic! The list is endless so give it a go!

• Go for a walk with your family perhaps you could count how many bears you can see or rainbows in
windows. Another idea is to spot different shapes or colours as you walk along.

• Take your Teddy Bear for a picnic. This can be done outside in your garden or you could choose to
play indoors if it’s a cooler day. Perhaps you could help to make a sandwich to share with your bear.
Hopefully we’ll be able to celebrate with a Teddy Bears picnic when we return to Sunflower

• We love to count at nursery and like to sing number songs too. See if you can encourage your child
to count to 5 or 10 if they are confident and willing to do so. Singing counting songs such as:
1,2,3,4,5, once I caught a fish alive and Five current buns in the baker’s shop amongst others, are
a good way to practice and encourage counting.

• Children love threading activities at Nursery so perhaps you could try some at home. A simple
threading activity can be done using pasta tubes and wool or thread to make a snake or necklace.
Alternatively, you can thread cheerios onto strands of upright dried spaghetti (you can use a bit
of playdough or blu-tack to keep it standing). See how many you can thread!

• Jigsaws and Simple Board games are a super way of encouraging turn taking and sharing.

• Drawing and Mark making: Encourage your child to mark make in their home school book. We are
learning to draw lines and circles at nursery. Perhaps you could encourage your child to draw a
picture of a teddy bear for us.

• Continue to practice kicking, throwing and catching a ball outside or throwing and catching a scarf

• How is the toilet training going? Please use this opportunity to introduce toilet training if your
little one is still in nappies or pull ups. Let’s see if everyone can be toilet trained before we return
to Nursery!
