Which animal was your favourite? Can you describe what they looked like? What colour was it? Did it have fur, scales or something different? What sound did it make?
I liked the black and white stripy zebra the best!

In school the children get their fruit and milk from the nursery ‘Snack Shop’. You might want to make one of these at home! You can see the one I have made with my little boys by cutting up a cereal box!

This week our special nursery rhyme is Five Brown Teddies Sitting on a Wall.
First enjoy listening to the song a couple of times and when your child is more familiar with the lyrics they could act it out with their own teddies on their bed or sofa.
Our number of the week is 8. Find out more about the number 8 here:
I will setup a Class Dojo activity to find 8 objects in your house.

Literacy and speaking and listening
Revisit our story of the week. Encourage your child to join in with the repeated words "what do you hear? I hear a ... ".
Next can you make some sounds for child to guess what they are? You could run the tap, bang a spoon on a pan, make a timer beep or turn on one of their toys.
Or you can join in with this listening game:
Play I Spy using the below picture. At this point it may be too tricky to use initial sounds but you could play this game in different ways such as I spy with my little eye something that is:
Can you count how many polar bears there are?
Thursday 25th February
You are going to make your own polar bear using circles and squares. It might be best for the adult to draw the shapes but if your child would like to do this instead that would be great too! See the picture below for what shapes you need. Talk about the shapes together:
Next, with adult supervision ask your child to cut out these shapes. Please don't worry if squares get cut in half or your circle looks like a triangle!! It is all part of the fun in learning to develop cutting skills! You know your child best, please only cut while it is fun! When they have had enough you can always come back to it later!
When you are ready join the pieces together with glue/tape/ Blu-Tack (anything you have in your house). See the picture below for an idea of how it could look!
Friday 26th February
In nursery we are going to use our creative skills to make some animals from the story for our classroom display. You could do this at home using the ClassDojo draw app! You can find pictures of the different animals below.
Get your body moving and join in with Andy's Wild Work Out. Have fun moving like lots of different types of Artic animals.
