Key Books

Below are the stories we'll be reading as a class this half term in Nursery. If you click on the links, we hope you can watch the stories with your child. Afterwards, can your child talk about what is happening in the story and how the characters feel? Also, can your child say if they like the story and why?

Can you also learn the song Hey Tiger?

Reading Challenge

We hope you are still enjoying reading books with your child. It is great to share books and stories in your home language as well as English. Don't forget you can borrow books from the nursery library as often as you need to - please speak to your child's teacher.

Creative Challenge

Can you pretend to be a tiger? You could use face paints or make a mask. Do you have any orange and black clothes you can wear? How could you make a tiger tail? We would like to see some photos of you all dressed up.

Please send in photos or videos to

Family Challenge

In our story, a tiger comes for tea at Sophie's house. You could invite someone you know to have tea and cake at your house. Maybe you could bring some cuddly toys to the table and serve them tea and cakes too.

Recent Learning

What can you make with a box? Nursery let their imaginations run wild, creating instruments, trucks, monsters and so much more!
