Isolating Activities

These activities are set for the children who are not unwell but who are having to isolate due to symptoms of a family member or a confirmed case of Coronavirus. 

Week beginning 8th March 2021 - 2nd half of the week and some 30 hours children 


Can you sneakily have a go at making a Mother’s Day card for your mummy? Maybe you could do it with your daddy or your brother or sister? 

All you need is some card, some paint and a pen! 
Fold your card in half and lay it down in front of you. Then dip your hand in some green paint and print it onto the front of the card. Then dip one of your fingers into whatever colour you like and do five dots around the top of each finger print so it looks like petals. Then get a yellow bit of paint and print your finger in the middle. 
Then cut out a piece of brown paper of card and stick it at the bottom so it looks like a plant pot. 
Good luck and have fun! 

Can you have a go at learning some numbers with your grown ups? Write some different numbers to 5 (or further if you think your child will be challenged by this) on a wall of your house in chalk. 
Then using a spray water bottle or a water pistol shout out a number and see if your child can recognise it. They might need some help at first but that’s okay and then they will pick it up the more times you play. Have fun! 
We love anything colourful in nursery and this is perfect to practise talking about colours and patterns. Can you have a go at making a symmetrical butterfly? 
All you need is some paint, some paper and some scissors. 
First, fold your paper in half and cut out a butterfly shape. Then open up the paper and you should have a butterfly in front of you. 
Then, drop some paint on one side of the paper, fold it over and open it again to reveal a lovely, bright, colourful butterfly! Have fun. 
Can you have a go at making some mud pies outside!! Collect some mud and to make it even more gooey, add water. Mix it all together and then find a stick or something to make marks with. 
Have a go at making different patterns in the mud. You could even try to write your name. Good luck!! 

Week beginning 9th November 


This week we have been learning all about Diwali and the festival of light. We have read 'Peppa's Diwali' which we will share with you when you come back into school and we have learnt all about how Diwali is celebrated. We have even made our own Diva lamps just like the ones below. Whilst you are at home, can you have a go at making your own. All you need is some card or paper cut into a circle, some glue, and some spare card. You could add sequins and glitter if you like or just colour yours in. 

1. Cut your card into a large circle and fold it in half so it stands on your table.

2. Cut out a rectangle shape for the candle and a flame shape to stick on your candle.

3. Stick your pieces of card together and decorate. 

I would love to see your finished candles if you want to send them to me at


Get making!!

Week beginning 16th November

As this is 'world nursery rhyme week'  something you could spend time doing is learning lots of nursery rhymes. Look at the 'our learning' tab on our class page and you will find link to the songs and rhymes we will be singing in nursery. 


When we learn the wheels on the bus,  we will explore wheels- can you use any of your toy vehicles to have a go at any of these activities? 


  • Using a toy bus (or other vehicle), fix a crayon or pencil to the front using an elastic band or similar. Then move the vehicle over paper or card to make marks with the pencil or crayon. 


  • Following tracks - ask a grown up to draw a track on some paper or on the ground outside if you have a patio or driveway.  Use your toy vehicles to follow the track. 


  • Create a bus for role play.  We will use a large piece of cardboard  and decorate it to look like a bus. Then we can pretend to drive the bus or be a passenger.  How many seats left?  How much is the journey? Where are you going? Etc.
