Spring is in the air!

It is the last day of term before Easter Break.

Janette saw lots of lovely signs of spring on her morning walk. When I walk the dogs in the evening I love seeing the rabbits, especially the little ones.

I hope you enjoy the little challenges for today. They are connected to Springtime. (To see whole page click ‘fit to page’)

Now join in with a song that you all know well. We sing this at nursery about the rabbit who has a fly upon his nose. So the rabbit Flips it and Flops it and the Fly Flew away!

Spring Walk


Nursery can you spots signs of Spring in your garden or when you are out on a walk. Use your senses to listen to the birds singing, look for animals and different types of birds, who are busy building their nests. Smell the Spring flowers – what colours are the flowers? Gently touch the petals and new buds on the trees – what do they feel like? When you get home use a book or the computer to find out the birds and flowers names. Please take photographs of what you see and share them with us on Twitter – we can’t wait to find out what you see.

Elephants Never Forget Memory Game Challenge

Play the Nursery Memory Game!

Elephants, like Elmer, never forget things because they practise using their memories….

You need to find a tray, a tea towel, someone to play with, 5 items e.g. pencil, toy car, lol toy, coin, button, toy animal, key, Lego brick- whatever you can find…

Put the things you’ve chosen on the tray. Now tell the other person that you are playing with to look at and remember what is there. Use the tea towel to cover everything and ask them to close their eyes (like at Nursery) Carefully take one thing away and hide it under the tea towel beside you. Ask the other person to open their eyes and try to guess what’s missing. Did they do it? Take turns to hide and guess.

Well done for playing the game! Make it more difficult by adding more things…….
