Stories:

Our children in Nurture Group love stories, watch these stories and encourage the children to join in with familiar parts, you will be surprised how much they know!

  • Learn the signs with your child, use the signs in daily activities, you will be amazed how quickly they pick them up. 

Nursery Rhymes:

  • Learn the makaton signs with the link below.

Sensory Activities 

Children in the Nurture Group love to explore through their different senses, try these ideas at home.

 

Making Foam:

Easy to make, just use a large squirt of bubble bath, a table spoon of warm water, a tiny bit of food colouring and whisk with either an electric or hand whisk.

 

Playdough:

Ingredients to make playdough.

  • 8 tbsp plain flour
  • 2 tbsp table salt
  • 60ml warm water
  • Food colouring

 

Water play:

Fill a container with some soapy warm water, add some lego or building blocks and let their little fingers do the rest.

 

Shaving Foam:

Write words, letters or just mark make in shaving foam squirted onto a tray or plate.

 

 

This time at home is a really good opportunity to teach your child some life skills, for example, putting on their coats, doing up buttons, zips, putting on their socks and shoes, washing their hands, brushing their teeth, combing their hair and tidying up after themselves. 

We hope that we will all see you soon, 

Mrs Shazadi and Mrs Runacus
