Welcome to Newfield Park Nursery.

Mrs Ellis and Mrs Gilliam work with the children in Nursery.

We currently have a morning and an afternoon Nursery.


Hello children. We are really sorry that you have to do your learning at home for a little while but don’t worry we will put some things on here for you to do and we will all be back together in nursery very soon. Take care.


               Nursery home learning Monday 5th July






In maths we have been thinking about the word ‘less’ and singing songs that take one away. We sang 5 little specked frogs and 5 currant buns and our favourite was 10 big biscuits in the biscuit tin because we had to eat the biscuits. Can you think of other songs where we count backwards? Can you sing one to a grown up. Don’t forget to think about one less each time and show your grown up that many fingers.

Mark making

Can you practice writing your name today. Can you show your grown up how you can write your name without your name card. Remember to think about what letter comes next and where you have to start writing each letter. Have a go. You can use anything to write your name, crayons, felt pens, chalk.

Other curriculum areas

In nursery our topic is Food, glorious food. This week we were going to make paper plate faces out of different fruit and vegetables. Can you ask a grown up if you have any that you could use at home. Maybe you could use slices of cucumber for eyes, a grape for a nose, a slice of banana for a mouth. What do you think you could have for hair?

Paper plate faces

Story time

Listen to the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. What does he eat first? How many things does he eat on Wednesday? Do you like some of the food the caterpillar eats? What happens to the caterpillar at the end of the story?
