LEARNING to make a difference

Week 1

Creative Ideas

The children in Nursery really enjoy being creative and making new things. You could use materials in your home such as old cereal boxes, yogurt pots to create your own models!


Our topic for this half term is farm animals.
Draw or paint some farm animals that you know and talk about them with your adult. 


Please save your creations so that we can see them once we are back in school!



In Nursery we enjoy making our own playdough to use in our playdough area. Here is a recipe you can use to make your own playdough at home:

1. Add 1 cup of flour.
2. Add 1 cup of salt.
3. Add 1 cup of water.

4. Add 1 tablespoon of oil.

5. Add food colouring or a small amount of paint to add colour.
6. Mix together in a bowl then kneed.

7. Store in a container in the fridge.


Playdough supports the development of fine motor skills when taking part in activities such as dough disco, here is a link to some dough disco songs we use in class in case you want to have a go!
