Claremont Primary and Nursery School

A Brighter Future for Everyone

W/C 20/04/20

Hi nursery children!


We hope you all had a great Easter holiday and you could enjoy lovely weather at least a bit.


During your first week back after the break, we will focus on GROWING. You could already hear Mrs Wilkes and Hailey reading a story of a very hungry caterpillar. It ate so much food that it became a big, fat caterpillar and then turned into a colourful butterfly!

We were wondering if you could check Mrs Wilkes’s caterpillars ( and tell your grown-ups how they have changed? Have they turned into beautiful butterflies yet or maybe they are still in their cocoons?


Dear Parents/Carers!


We have added quite a few ideas and activities you can do with your children during this week. 

Please remember it is just to keep your small ones busy, and there is no pressure to complete them all! Have fun and stay safe!

5 Things of the Week


  • Listen to environmental sounds and try to guess what you can hear

You can find ‘Head, shoulders, knees and toes’ songs or lots of Just Dance clips for children on YouTube

  • Can your child follow the sound? An adult begins by producing a body percussion sound eg. clap your hands, pat your hand. Can the child repeat the sounds?
  • Extension:  
  1. Make it more complicated eg. clap, stomp, stomp, clap
  2. Make it slow/ make it fast – Can the child copy?


Sorting – ability to sort objects into groups based on their similarities and differences

Extension – A more difficult sorting activity would be sorting objects based on their function or the place we can find them eg. animals that live on the farm/ in the zoo.

Below you can find some sorting ideas.


Matching – ability to pair similar objects

Below you can find some matching ideas. Remember you can always use different things like socks or shape objects
