Good morning Nursery,
I hope you have all had a good weekend. You are doing a brilliant job with your home learning and should be really proud of the great work you are doing. Thank you for sending in all of your photographs; it is lovely to see the learning that is taking place.
Here are some suggestions for today. This week in Nursery we will be looking at the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, so a lot of the learning suggestions for this week will be linked to the story in some way.
Feel free to contact me on dojo should you need to .
Since I set the home learning last week we have had an unexpected snow day. Make sure to make the most of it. Can you build a snowman or even go for a walk and look for foot prints? Have fun but remember to wear plenty of warm clothes.
1) What did the bears made for breakfast? (Porridge)
2) Why did they not eat the porridge as soon as it was ready? (It was far too hot to eat)
3) Who went into the bears' cottage whilst they were out? (Goldilocks)
4) Why do you think 'Goldilocks' was called 'Goldilocks'? (She had long golden hair)
5) Why did Goldilocks not like Mummy Bear's porridge? (It was too sweet)
6) How do you think the bears felt when they saw that someone had eaten their porridge? (They were probably very angry and confused).
7) Why did Goldilocks run off? (She was scared)
8) Did you like the story? Why / why not?
Have a go at making your very own porridge. Here is a basic recipe. Always remember that an adult must handle the hot food and make sure it is cool enough for you to eat.
Using a saucepan
Put 50g porridge oats in a saucepan, pour in 350ml milk or water and sprinkle in a pinch of salt. Bring to the boil and simmer for 4-5 minutes, stirring from time to time and watching carefully that it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan.
Using the Microwave
Or you can try this in a microwave. Mix the porridge oats, milk or water and a pinch of salt in a large microwaveproof bowl, then microwave on High for 5 minutes, stirring halfway through. Leave to stand for 2 minutes before eating.
Try different toppings on your porridge. You may want to try sugar, honey, golden syrup or even jam. Which is your favourite?
