Home Learning Tasks for the Brilliant Bears’


Today is the last day of April! Do you know what month comes next? It begins with M.

Did you fulfil your goals set for this month?

Can you think of a new goal you might want to set yourself for the new month? Maybe you want to be able to jump higher or catch a ball.





Morning activities


Another new morning activity today. When I found this video, it reminded me of you, my brilliantly Brilliant Bears.




Here’s our daily phonics song.


Apple Pie!


Today, I would like you to play a game with everybody in your house.

It is called ‘Apple Pie’. We love this game at Nursery!

First you must all sit in a circle.

Grown-ups, ask your child to stand out of the circle with their eyes shut. Choose somebody in the circle to say ‘Apple Pie’ in a silly voice.

Can your Brilliant Bear guess who it was?

You will need a pair of tweezers, dry tubed pasta and an ice cube tray.

Place your pasta on a plate, use the tweezers to move the pasta in and out of the ice cube tray.

How many pieces can you fit in one tray?  

How many can you fit in two trays?

Here’s how it might look at school, but use what you can grown-ups. The aim is to improve your child’s fine motor skills and to get their little hands ready for writing.


Can you find those numbers on the number line?

Make sure you are careful counting Brilliant bears.




Topic (Langley Mill Helpers and Heros)


Helpers of the week:

The Police


Yesterday we watched a video on how the police help us.

At the end of the video it showed us all about why it is important for the police car to be working correctly.

Today, could you build a police car?

You can build your police car however you want, you could make it from cardboard, paper, lego or building blocks. You could paint it, colour it, stick and glue it, but make sure you choose a different method to the one you used for your ambulance last week.


I have attached yesterday’s video alongside some pictures to help you get creative!








Place a small amount of shampoo, conditioner or soap into a zip lock bag and zip up. Place it flat on the table. You can then practice writing your name on top of the bag and make it disappear!
