Today's Learning Summer 2 Week 5

Friday 3rd July 2020

Good morning GEMS. It's Friday! Well done to everyone who has been taking part in the website activities this week and thank you for sending your photographs - we love to see you. 

We hope you enjoy today's activities. Have a great day and great weekend everyone!


Mrs Ward has another colour story for you!

Make some binoculars and see what you can see!

Look carefully - can you spot the animals from the story?


Can you sort by colour? You could use anything that you have at home  such as building bricks, colourful toys, clothes, or even food!

These activities are great for developing fine motor control and hand-eye coordination which are essential skills for children to build before they can begin to use pens and pencils or begin to write.

Good morning GEMS. We hope that you are all enjoying the activities this week. Are you ready for another colourful day? Mrs Ward from Nursery has a new story for you.

Have a great day everyone!

Can you name all of these things and say what colour they are?

Now listen to Mrs Ward's story and see if you can spot all of the things from the picture in the story as they land on dog.

Can you remember all of the different coloured things that landed on dog? Here are the colours to help you. 


Can you make your own colourful dog like the one from the story?

Mrs Lee's dog Duke has been getting different coloured things all over himself!

Are you ready to do some washing?
