Good morning nursery children.


Please have a go at today's learning activities below. 


This is the last time that work will be posted as it is the start of the summer holidays on Monday. Enjoy the summer holidays with your family. I look forward to seeing you in September, those who are starting reception and those of you who are coming back to nursery.


Please continue to practise your phonics, maths, reading, writing etc when you can over the holidays.


If you do any of today's tasks, don't forget to share it on our Twitter page at and tag @StMariesKirkby so I can see!



Take care,


Miss Price xxx




  • Practise saying and writing some of the sounds that we have already looked at  (m,a,s,d, t, i, n, p, g, o, c, k, u, b, f, e, l, h, r, j, v, y, w, z, qu, x, sh, th, ch ng and nk).







This week’s other learning focuses on supporting your child with transitioning to their new class or looking towards returning to nursery in September. It will give them the opportunity to reflect on their time in nursery, discussing their favourite memories and achievements whilst also considering their hopes and dreams for the next academic year.



Task 1

Read or listen to the story ‘The Dot’ by Peter Reynolds. If you do not have the story` at home listen below. Use this story as the starting point for discussions about ‘growth mindset’. What happens to Vashti when she starts to believe that she can draw? Talk about how Vashti says that she can’t draw. Has there ever been a time when you thought that you couldn’t do something? How did you overcome it? Discuss the importance of positive thinking and how it will help your child to prepare for the next school year.



Task 2
below are some of the things that you could focus on during the holidays to help your child prepare for the new school year. Try to focus on these skills during your childs day to day activities. Encourage them to be independent and let them do things for themselves, even if they find it tricky at first, practice makes perfect.





You have done an amazing job home schooling your child for the past few months. I hope you enjoy the summer holidays and have lots of fun with your family. See you soon xx
