Please encourage your child to write some labels for some vegetables that they find at home. Maybe you could link this to the phonemes/sounds the children have been learning e.g 'p' for potato, 'p' peas or 's' for sprouts! You could also talk about the vegetables below. Can your child name them? I would love to see how they get on!!!

I hope you enjoy this story today! Eat Your Peas. Please stop video at 4.38. Ask your child what do they think is going to happen at the end of the story? Do they think Daisy will eat her peas?
Wednesday 13th January
Today is usually name writing day in nursery.
Can you practise writing your name? Remember there is only a capital letter at the beginning, the other letters are lower case! If letters are still a bit tricky you can do some patterns such as circles, zigzags, swirls and crosses.

I hope you all had a chance to listen to the story of Oliver's Vegetables, if not, watch that first today.
I wonder if you can remember what Oliver pulled up on each day of the week? Once you have had a think about it, try playing the game below. If you've forgotten parts of the story, you could have another listen!
Monday 11th January
This week we are starting with the story of 'Olivers Vegetables'.
Listen to the story and parents, if you can pause the video at 4.14 and ask your child to guess what they think is going to happen on Sunday. Do they think Oliver is ever going to find the potatoes?

Before you share the Hungry Caterpillar again. Ask your child what they can remember? A few questions you could ask. What happened to the caterpillar? Can you remember what the caterpillar ate? Why did the caterpillar get fat? How did the caterpillar feel when he ate too much? Share the story again. Then ask your child the same questions. Did their answers improve? I would love to hear what the children could remember! Then encourage your child to have a go at writing their name.

Please encourage your child to draw a picture of the fruit they liked smelling and then tasting the best. It would be lovely to see their picture!
Wednesday 6th January
Share the story of 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar'. He eats lots of food in this book - I wonder if you can draw a picture of your favourite part! How many foods can you remember once you have heard the story?

Today, can you practise writing your name. You could have some fun with this! Why not try using some different things to write your name like spreading salt/flour on a tray and using your finger to make the letters appear! You could use different coloured pens or pencils or even paint! If you are struggling to form correct letters, start with some patterns such as zigzags or swirls - this will help you to learn how to control your pencil.
Don't forget to send us some pictures!
