Home learning for Nursery - Ducklings 6

Hello Ducklings! Welcome to a new term! Now the school is open again and we have moved back into the Nursery. I wanted to share with you a little of what we are doing each week so that you can join in if you wish to. We will do this by having a focus story which we will use to plan some fun activities. For the Older Ducklings I have included some phonics to help get you ready for school. Look out for the weekly tricky word in your stories and see how many ways you could make it.

Can you make you own slime?

Slime recipe

This method makes a ball of flexible slime close to silly putty in texture. It stays clean in your hands, making it a good choice for little kids. If you want your slime gloopier and more stringy, see the troubleshooter below.

Takes 10 minutes

  • 100ml PVA white glue (children’s craft glue or CE marked glue)

  • ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda

  • gel food colouring

  • 1 tsp contact lens cleaning solution

  • glitter (optional)
