How is Missy? She is learning how to have her teeth cleaned.....just like the children in the Nursery.
Draw With Rob
If you want to have a go at drawing pictures with an author and illustrator, then go to Google and type in 'Draw With Rob' and you will see lots of videos by Rob Biddulph. You can follow along with his youtube videos where he will give you easy step by step instructions on how to draw characters from his books. All you need is some paper and a pencil! Have a go and keep it safe to show us all when you come back to Nursery or get your grown up to take a picture of your pictures and email them to us for us to see!
Telescopes with Repeating Patterns!
This week Mrs Waring and her children have made telescopes. They used old cereal boxes and practised using the scissors carefully to cut off the broken parts. She then helped them fold the box so it made a tube shape and they stuck it together using sellotape.
They then used paints to paint a repeating pattern on the telescope! One telescope had a repeating colour pattern of blue, yellow, blue, yellow and the other telescope had a repeating colour pattern of blue, orange, purple, blue, orange, purple.
Could you make a telescope at home and think about a repeating pattern you could add onto it? It could be different colours like the ones Mrs Waring made or they could have shapes or dots - its up to you!! Have fun!
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:
Amani sent some pictures of the wonderful rainbow he has been making with his family.
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. https://www.youtube.com/user/thebodycoach1
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!
Missy has been with us for two weeks now and is growing fast!
We are teaching her how to sit using a little bit of chicken as a reward.We have also found out she loves peanut butter.
Here is another update on Missy! She went into the garden for the first time and she loved it! She played on the grass, and sniffed the flowers and chewed all the sticks! Here is a picture of her having fun in the garden

NURSERY BREAKFAST AND SNACK TIME
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 DO NOT SEND ANY FOOD THAT CONTAINS NUTS. MANY THANKS.
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.
