Exeter Nursery Week 8 home learning challenges

Nature’s patterns

When you are next out in the garden or on a walk take some paper and crayons.

What sort of patterns can you find?


Place the paper on top of leaves, tree bark, pavements and rub with the crayon.

Children love the excitement of watching the patterns emerge.

Underwater Counting

Here is a link to a game on TopMarks.


Play the game together and talk about the creatures they can see. Which ones caan they name?

Nursery Rhyme of the Week

5 Little Speckled Frogs




A fantastic song for learning rhyme and numbers


Cosmic Yoga

Try out this fun Yoga session designed especially for children. It helps them strengthen their bodies ready for when they will write. It promotes a healthy attitude to exercise and good well-being.

They cleverly use stories to make it fun and engaging. Give it a go!

Use your hands to see what animal shadows you can make.

You can also use paper and cut out your own shadow theatre puppets and make up a story together.
