2 and 3 year olds (Pre-N and N1)



This week at Nursery, we would have been learning all about Easter!  If you celebrate Easter in your family, then here are some details of what we would have done at Nursery.  If you do not celebrate Easter, then you could continue to work on our Spring theme or follow your child’s interests and do activities based around something that they like.

Story of the Week

Our Story of the Week at Nursery would have been 'Spot's First Easter' by Eric Hill.  Here is an online reading of the story:


If your child enjoys this story, you can watch an animated version of further Spot stories on Youtube:


Here is an online version of another lovely Easter story, ‘We’re Going on an Egg Hunt’, that you could watch with your child:

See if your child can join in with the repeated refrains!

Please always remember to supervise your child when they are watching anything on Youtube!

Rhyme of the Week

Our Rhyme of the Week would have been 'The Bunny Cokey'.  It is sung to the tune of the Hokey Cokey and has lots of actions -  here are the words:

Here are some other Easter songs that you could watch with your child:

Boom Chika Boom:

Five Little Bunnies:

Peter Rabbit’s got a fly upon his nose:


Please always remember to supervise your child when they are watching anything on Youtube!

Expressive Art and Design

You could try to make an Easter basket out of recycled materials (if you did this then you could also tick off one of the boxes on your ‘Project Bingo’ sheet in your home learning pack).  Here is an example to get you started:

We were also going to make Easter cards at Nursery this week.  Obviously, what you are able to do at home with your child with depend on the materials and resources that you have at home, but here are some ideas for home-made Easter cards to get you started:

If you have managed to make any baskets or cards at home, I would love to see photos of them on Tapestry!


We were going to make Easter nests at Nursery.  I realise that it may be hard to buy the ingredients for these at the moment, but if you do already have them at home then it is a fun and easy activity to do with your child.  Remember that you do not need to use shredded wheat.  We use rice crispies at Nursery but you could use cornflakes, crushed up wheat biscuits or whatever cereal you may have at home.

Here is a recipe that you could follow:

N.B. At Nursery we do not place the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water as described in this recipe.  Instead we boil water in a kettle, pour it into a saucepan, wrap a tea towel around the outside of the saucepan and then put the bowl of chocolate on top.  The water will stay sufficiently warm to melt the chocolate and the children can stir the chocolate in the bowl while standing at the kitchen table or worktop instead of at the stove.  The tea towel ensures that the children cannot touch the hot surface of the pan.  However, it is still important that you supervise you child while they are doing this.


This week in maths we were going to work on noticing simple shapes and patterns in pictures.  If you have access to a printer at home, you could print out and cut up these eggs and see if your child can match the two halves together by looking at the different patterns:


If you do not have a printer, you could cut out a set of eggs from paper and decorate them yourself. Your child could help you to draw different patterns on each egg e.g. spots on one, stripes on another, zigzags on a third etc.  Then cut them up and see if your child can put them back together!

If you have a set of plastic eggs at home then you could see if your child can match the two halves together and name the different colours.
