Play Simon Says:
What to do: Begin by calling out simple commands like "Simon says, put your hands on your head," and demonstrating the command yourself. As long as you say "Simon says," your child has to obey you.
Carry on with other commands, such as "Simon says stand on one leg," "Simon says clap your hands". Do some funny ones, too, like "Simon says stick your tongue out".
Then try to catch your child out by saying "Touch your toes," omitting "Simon says". Without the magic words your child mustn't follow the command!
Take turns so your child can give commands.
Learning to write your name
Learn to recognise your name. Their are lots of fun ways to do it.
1. Ask a grown up to print out or write your name. Then write over the top of it, following the shapes of the letters.
2. Find small objects from around your house e.g. beads and buttons, and place them on top of your name.
3. Write your name in sand, glitter or flour.
4. Use magnetic letters. Hold the letters, trace over them with your finger. Match the magnetic letters to those in your name.
5. Ask a grown up to label your favourite cups, water bottles, plates, and placemats.
6. Ask a grown up to write the letters from your name on Duplo or Lego. Use these bricks to make your name.

We really enjoy singing nursery rhymes. Incy Wincy Spider is one of our favourites. Click on the picture above to listen to Mr Tumble sing Incy Wincy spider. Join in with the singing and actions.
How can Walter make his web stronger?
Click on the video above to listen to Walter's Wonderful Web? Talk about the story together. Why does Walter's web keep blowing away? How could he make it stronger? What shape would make a good web? Have you got any ideas that could help Walter? Draw Walter a web to help him. Walter shows perseverance as he spins his web, he doesn't give up, no matter how many time it gets blown away.
Value of Responsibility
In Nursery we are learning to be responsible for our words and actions.
We decided that one way we could be responsible was to help tidy up. We have had lots of fun with our new brushes tidying outside!
The children have reflected that we can be responsible by using kind words, kind hands and kind feet. We have made a rainbow using our kind hands handprints. The prayer we say when we come in every afternoon, reminds us to be kind and good.
Please bless all I do today,
All my thoughts and work and play,
Help me to do the things I should,
To be to others kind and good,
