Purple Day

 

Just because we aren't in nursery, doesn't mean we cant have purple day!  You can wear something purple or take part in a purple activity such as:

  • Paint or draw something that is purple
  • Go on a purple hunt-what purple things can you find around your house?
  • Make purple grapes using paint and the end of a toilet roll holder or bubble wrap
  • Choosing the purple stickers from a sticker sheet and sticking them on a page
  • Or anything else you choose! Use your imagination and share your ideas!

 

Do it on any day that suits you in April and send your pictures to my email address, dhalsall047@moneyreaprimary.co.uk

Learning To Write Their Name

 

Learning to write their name is a big achievement!  Sometimes it comes easily and for others it takes lots of practice. 

If your child enjoys writing and can write their first name why not try teaching them how to write their surname?

Don't panic if your child cannot write their name yet, there is plenty of time! Here are some tips:

 

  • Encourage them to told their pencil correctly
  • Always use a capital for their first name, but not any other letter
  • Don't force it, if its a struggle, start with the first letter and build on it
  • It can be frustrating, try to be as patient as possible

 

Here are some fun ways to practice that we like to use in nursery:
