Week 6 - Marvellous Me


This week's theme explores what makes each child individual and special. Please discuss the following with your child:

  • What is your full name?
  • How old are you?
  • What month is your birthday in?
  • What words would you use to describe yourself?
  • How have you changed since you were a baby?


  • Make a self-portrait. A self-portrait is a picture of yourself. You could use pencil crayons, felt-tips or paint. Make sure you think about your different features (eyes, eyebrows nose, ears, mouth). Think about your eye, hair and skin colour.
  • Make a card for one of your friends at Nursery.
  • Your name is very important. It is part of who you are! It is important that you recognise your name and start to learn to write it. Ask a grown-up to write it down for you. Now have a try at forming some of the letters yourself. 



We have 3 books that we would like you to listen to this week:


  • What were the characters called in the story? 
  • Discuss the different objects that the children had in the story.
  • Discuss the sizes of the objects in the story.


If You're Happy and You Know it, Clap Your Hands

Here we go round the Mulberry Bush

  • When you have listened to the story Titch. Describe some of the characters and objects from the story using size language (big, bigger, biggest, small, smaller, smallest, tall, taller, tallest, short, shorter, shortest).
  • Practise counting forwards to 10. When you are confident at counting to 10, practise counting to 20. (You might enjoy listening to this song:
  • Every time you go upstairs, count the steps as you move up 1. Remember to say only one number for each step.
  • Choose some of your favourite teddies or dolls. Place them in a line. Practise counting them saying 1 number name for each teddy (Grown-ups: Start with 3 teddies and increase them as they count them accurately)
  • How old are you? Are you 3 or 4? Show your grown-up that amount of fingers. Ask your grown-up to show you what a number 3 or 4 looks like.
  • Sing or listen to a range of number rhymes. You will find some on youtube.
