Hi nursery, I hope you all had a lovely half term break and had a good rest! This term we are going to be learning about a new topic. Our new topic this half term is going to be about People who help us.
I have added some activities for this week for you to have a go at. Remember I am looking for my shooting stars so don’t forget to send me photos of all your fantastic work. Also don’t forget to have a go at your Doodle.
Keep a look out on our star titled celebrating your work. I will add lots of your photos you send me to the gallery and you will be able to see your friends!
This week is Workout Week so we are going to have a go at some Go Noodle activities to improve balance, agility and co-ordination.
If you enjoy these activities, there are many more workout and brain break videos from Go Noodle on YouTube- so what not give them a go?
Don't forget to join Miss Ellgood and some of Year 2 in Friday's Fit Friday Assembly on our Move it With Mapledene YouTube channel.

Use the key vocabulary to talk about and compare each cup.
Key vocabulary to use
At bath time have a go at filling different containers. Can you fill them to show they are full, nearly full or half full?
Don’t worry if you haven’t got a printer. Gather some of your toys or teddies. An adult will need to tell you where to put them, e.g. ‘Go and put teddy under the table.’ ‘Go and put your train beside the chair.’ You can have lots of fun playing this game.
Place a group of teddies or toys on the bed. Place another group of teddies/toys in a different place, such as on the floor.
How many teddies are in each group? How many teddies do you have altogether? Now try and different number?
2) Warm water
3) A plate.
Have your plate and organise the Skittles in a circle around the edge of the plate. Gently pour water in the centre of the plate. Warm water works better than cold. Make sure there is enough water to go past the Skittles while filling the plate. Wait and watch the Skittle colours move towards the centre of the plate with beautiful rainbow streaks. You can try different colour patterns each time they do the experiment! I can’t wait to see some photos of yours!
UW & PSED - Calling for help in an emergency. Talk to your children about how they would call for help if they needed to. If you have a home phone, show them the number 9 and explain that they have to press it 3 times. If you have a mobile, show them how to unlock your phone and use the keypad. Talk to them about how they need to talk calmly and slowly and not to hang up before the man or lady on the phone asks them to. Talk to your child about telling them their name and the address you live at. Maybe you could start practising this together. Remember to explain to your child that the emergency services are very busy, so you must only call in an emergency. You could make this into a fun game and record your child practising! Watch the animated video attached below, with ‘Look out Lion,’ who shows you what to do.
Or instead maybe a paper plate police car. You will need a paper plate and some coloured card. Talk about some of the shapes you have used on your police car.
