Scroll down to find information on suggested activities to do with your child each week. 


Please send any photo evidence or comments about your child's learning to under the subject FOR NURSERY. This will allow me to gather evidence for their learning profiles. 


Any children that we have been trying to potty train, perhaps you could use this time at home to continue this. 


Many thanks. 


Good morning everybody!


I am really missing seeing you all. I hope that you are having lots of fun at home with your grown ups and trying to complete some of the activities I have put on our class page. 

Have a look at the new activities on this weeks plan and try to make notes and send some photos Mums and Dads. 


Remember to scroll down to practise the first songs added that we sing daily. 

Days of the week, numbers to 10, shape song and Jolly phonics. 


I have added a few different ones with this weeks planning too. 


Keep safe everyone.

Mrs Roberts, our SENCo, has uploaded some really useful information and resources which we would like to direct Parents/Carers to. 

Join me every day next week for a home workout 

Starting Monday 23rd March I'm going to be hosting a free workout aimed at kids LIVE on my YouTube channel.

With the schools closed and with us all spending more time at home, it's more important than ever that we keep moving and stay healthy and positive.

Exercise is an amazing tool to help us feel happier, more energised, and more optimistic.  

The workouts will be fun and suitable for all ages and even adults can get involved. 

You don't need any equipment, just tune in to my YouTube channel at 9am each morning for a 30-minute, fun workout. 

One more thing! I really need your help to spread this message. So please please share this with everyone that might like to get involved, and together we can help keep the nation moving 🏻

Lots of love, Joe x

Nursery Parents - To see what we have been learning previously please go to the separate Little Millers Nursery heading on this website. 


Following our school closure there will be suggested activities you could do at home with your child. There will also be relevant youtube videos that the children are used to joining in with on a daily or weekly basis. Please try to frequently watch these over the coming weeks to ensure that all that fabulous learning that has been done is not forgotten. 

Thank you 




Days of the Week clap clap! To the tune of the Addams Family

Everyday we practice singing the days of the week.
What day was it yesterday ? What day will it be tomorrow ?

10 Little Numbers

Practice your counting up to 10 and back down to zero. Can you count using your fingers?

Challenge - Can you count out 10 of your toys?
Can you write any of your numbers ?

Shapes Song 2

Practice singing our shape song. Parents don't worry too much about your children knowing the larger side shapes ( we just like singing this song)
Don't forget to shout out the names of the shapes you see flying about at the end of the song.

Challenge - How many sides does the shape have?


This song is perfect to help both you and your child learn the sounds that the letters make which in turn will help them with learning to read.
Our nursery children have been practising the letters in this song from a-j. We have learnt the actions. Please pause each letter to practise learning the actions too and support your child. The actions really help them to remember the sound the letter makes.

Week beginning 23rd March. Suggested activities for your child to complete.
