Hello to all our families we hope you are all well and safe. heart

We have provided you with a few little Easter challenges to try at home over the Easter period.wink

What a great idea! 

Rather than throw away the ends of your vegetables. Place them in a shallow tray of water for 3 weeks, you will then start to see them re-grow.

If you have a garden you could then plant them outside and create your own vegetable patch.

Give it a go and send us you photos so we can share them with our other families.

Thankyou to everyone that has sent us their photos so far. We have loved seeing what you have all been getting up to together.



STEM building is really important for children to take part in. It really helps with their development and understanding of science, technology, engineering and maths.

Sharing STEM with your child is great as it is all hands on activities that will ensure your child will be involved and intrigued with the tasks ahead of them.

It strengthens bonds between others and encourages children to be able to work independently or to work together as a team to complete challenges.

We have provided you with a link that will explain more about STEM building and how exciting and interesting it can be for your child.

Don't forget to use Pinterest for more STEM building ideas. They have an enormous bank of ideas to inspire you and your family. We have provided you with the Pinterest link further down on this page. 



As practitioners we are always looking for new and exciting ideas to help develop your children's interests.

A good tool we use that has many ideas is Pinterest. We have added the link below so that you can take a look. It doesn't cost anything to sign up so it may be worth doing so if you are running low on ideas to keep your children entertained.

Once set up if you type in EYFS activities lots of activity ideas will come up for you to take a look at. You can then narrow down your searches by being more specific. So if your child is struggling with counting objects you can type in EYFS counting activities. Or if you would like lots of mark making activities type in EYFS mark making activities.

Take a look and let us know what exciting and interesting things you have found to do with your children at home by sending us your photos to the nursery email

We look forward to hearing from you soon.smiley 


Below are a couple of simple recipes that you may wish to try at home with your children.

If you have any more recipes you use at home and you would like to share them with the other families at nursery then please email them to us at and we can post them on the website.

We hope you are sharing and enjoying many stories together with your family. it is a great way to introduce them to new language, concepts, develop their imagination and concentration. 

For some different stories you can click on the link below which will take you to the cbeebies website and there are many to choose from. yes  

Don't forget we would love a photo of you sharing a story with your child so if you could email us your picture on the nursery email we can share them for everyone to enjoy.




Today use a container or bag and go around your home to find coloured objects. 

Find one colour at a time. Start with blue then go on to red, yellow and green.

Once collected the items sit down with your child and explore them together. Model language of size, how it feels, describe how it looks, does it make any sounds?

Ask your child simple who, what and where questions that can be linked to the object. 

We hope you have lots of fun with this activity and please send us some photos to our nursery email so that we can share them on our page.smiley
