Rockets Nursery Class

As schools will be closing, Nursery have listed some exciting activities that you can do at home. Click on the link that will take you to the document. There are also some links to websites that you can visit for activities. Nursery will keep posting activities and ideas of things to do at home in this time, so keep visiting the class page on the website. Take care everyone.




While Rockets Nursery is closed, there are plenty of activities you can do to keep you and your child occupied and having fun, and to keep your child learning at home:


  1. There is a Rainbows in Windows competition taking place across the whole country! As part of this competition, children around the country are designing a rainbow to go in their window to show support for NHS workers. Please stick your entry in your window for everyone to see, and send a picture of all of your entries to with the subject of the email being 'Rainbows in Windows. Here is some inspiration:



2. Every weekday morning, my daughter and I have been doing P:E with The Body Coach, Joe Wicks live on YouTube at 9am! It is an amazing half an hour workout, and it is very fun and suitable for all ages. If you subscribe to his YouTube channel, you will get a notification when he goes live at 9AM every weekday morning.

Get your gym kit on and get moving!


3. There are plenty of education websites you can go on with your children to keep them learning at home:


And lastly, some of you may remember that I was getting a new puppy! She has come home a bit early, but here she is! Her name is Missy and she is a brown Labradoodle who has lots of energy, loves chicken and loves to chew everything - including our slippers!

We will be starting breakfast and snack time in the Nursery. We encourage a range of healthy foods and would really appreciate any contributions to this from parents and carers.

Examples are cereals such as Rice Krispies, Cornflakes, Weetabix, Shreddies. Examples for snack time would be foods such as bread sticks, crackers, different types of fruit. Any thing that you can contribute would be very gratefully received.                  


Please make sure your child has a spare set of clothes in a bag on their peg. There may be times when we need to change your child and it is much easier if we have a change of clothes from home. If you have any spare clothes that could be donated to the Nursery, please bring them in and give them to a member of staff.
