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?

Reading Challenge:

Enjoy spending time together reading books you love. You can ask the teachers or visit the library to see if you can find any books about different mini beasts?

Creative Challenge:

Can you make some playdough and see what you can create with it?

The recipe is easy. Into a bowl, put 2 cups of flour, 1 cup of salt and 4 spoons of cream of tartar (if you have some, it makes the dough last longer, but you can make it without). Then, an adult should mix in 2 cups of hot water from the kettle and 4 spoons of vegetable oil. You can add food colouring for colour or spices to give it a lovely smell. We like to use ginger, cinnamon or vanilla. When it is cooled, you are ready to play with your dough! It will keep for a few weeks in an airtight container.

Please send in photographs of your playdough models to

Family Challenge:

Can you go on a mini beast walk, to see what different mini beasts you can find?

Please send in your photographs to
