Nursery Home Learning Pack - The Grand Old Duke of York
How are you feeling today?
Can you show me your wonderful name writing like you usually would in nursery? Have you been practising? Perhaps you could take a photo and upload it on to ClassDojo for me to see?
This week we will be looking at the nursery rhyme 'The Grand Old Duke of York' - please enjoy learning this rhyme with your grown-up!
Can you put these parts of the rhyme in the correct order? Which happened 1st, 2nd, 3rd?
Well done for working hard! Sit back and get comfortable with our story, read by Ms Green:
Your positional language activity is:
Can you find an object in your home which can be a soldier or the 'Grand Old Duke of York?' It can be anything you like; a teddy, a small world figure, a doll.
Can you play a game of hide and seek with your item (your grown-up may hide it for you to find).
When you find it, can you describe where the item was using your special positional language? For example, "I have found my soldier, it was on top of the chair!" or "It was behind the cushion."
You might like to create your own 'Grand Old Duke of York' picture or soldier using anything from around your home?
Phonics task: Using 2 or 3 musical instruments or 'noisy' objects from around your home, can you listen carefully to the sounds that each of them make? Next, can your grown-up hide them behind their back and play each sound? Can you think about which one you heard 1st and then 2nd? Your grown-up might even ask which sound was the second sound first, so make sure you LISTEN VERY CAREFULLY! Here are some other ideas you could explore too...
Story time with Mrs Steward, today's story is 'Oliver's Wood'.
Enjoy a Story Time with Ms Green!
If you have any play dough at home or any ingredients to make some, then this 'dough disco' activity is fantastic for getting our fingers and hands ready for writing and so much fun too!
