Hi everyone.

Have fun 

From Mrs Parrwood

It's OK to worry

Hi Nursery children. I have bought this book for my daughter and thought I would share it on your page as I think it helps to explain what it feels like in life right now, as lots of things are very different. I hope you are all having fun at home, I sure miss seeing you all having fun in the Nursery playground and in the woods with Whisper.

Enjoy the book and take care. Mrs Hastings xx

Pirates’ topic continued…


W/C 11th May – Pirates Love Underpants


  • Task 1 - Listen to the story and choose a character from the story to describe it using as many interesting words as you can! Here are some picture clues to help you… E.G He has a long dirty beard.  A colourful parrot sits on his shoulder.  (Literacy and Communication and Language)


  • Task 2 - Make a treasure map just like in the story and don’t forget to use a  X to mark the spot! (Physical Development and Expressive Arts and Design)

    • Dip the teabag into the water and smear it all over both sides of the white paper.
    • Let the paper dry and then use coloured pens to draw on your map.
    • Roll your map up into a scroll and use a strip of ribbon to put a bow around it.


  • Task 3 – Practice lots of counting, you can count pants like in the story or we would have used coins in nursery. Can you carefully count up to 6 items from a larger group? Find out how many are left? You can count claps, jumps or even steps to see how many it takes to ‘walk the plank’. (Mathematics)


  • Additional task – Freeze some treasure! How can you get the treasure out!? Maybe some treasure-excavating tools will help? Such as; salt, spray bottles with water, Calpol syringes with warm water and toothbrushes. Some fun treasures to freeze could include; coins, plastic animals, polished rocks. You can also freeze individual treasures in ice cubes for quicker treasure-hunting adventures. Using coloured water in spray bottles is fun too!

We hope you have fun doing these activities but please don't worry if you don't get chance to do them :)
