Good morning nursery children!
I hope you all had a good weekend. Here are some activities to help keep you busy. Just do what you can.
If you do any of today's tasks, don't forget to share it on our Twitter page at https://twitter.com/ and tag @StMariesKirkby so I can see!

Describing and Sorting into Sets
- Select some toys and ask your child to pick one and describe it. Can they talk about it’s colour, pattern, shape and size? Repeat this for a different toy. Afterwards, get them to compare the toys explaining similarities and differences.
- Share stories about food e.g. The Gingerbread Man. Look here or here for a range of stories. Ask your child to describe what happened in the story.
- Ask your child to draw the events from ‘The Gingerbread Man’ in order. They could label each picture with words or write sentences about each picture. You can listen to the story here.
What Food Keeps us Healthy?
- Provide your child with a selection of items from your kitchen cupboards. Write the word ‘healthy’ onto one piece of paper and ‘unhealthy’ onto another. Ask your child to sort the food accordingly. Discuss why the food is good for you or bad for you. Look at the Eatwell Plate and explain to your child which foods they should eat a lot of or not very much of.
