Nursery Home Learning Activities


Nursery will be posting activities on Seesaw on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

Topics will be People Who Help us and Changing Seasons with focus on

  • Literacy and Numeracy
  • Feelings
  • Independence

Updates will be posted on Seesaw with more details

During the period that our nursery children have been asked to self-isolate, we have put together some activities for you to access to support learning at home.  The focus will provide continuity of learning for your child.

It is important that your child has play-based learning and your interaction and involvement with your child in these activities is very important.  

Below you will find some activities to support and build on learning from nursery in literacy and numeracy.  There are ideas of activities you can try at home during this time.

You will also find links to videos from our nursery staff which will help to maintain contact between practitioners, parents and children.  

Please remember to tag us in your tweets @Tullochprimary to share with us any pictures of your child engaging in these activities.

Musical Maths

Song and rhyme can be a fun way to explore numeracy. Sing the number rhyme – 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 with your child (link can be found below)

Ask your child to consider a different ending. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 once I caught a ....

Questions you may wish to ask (numbers can be changed to suit):

• Which number comes before/after?

• How many different ways can you show me 5?

• How many fingers am I showing? How many more to make…?

• Can you count backwards from 5 or 10


Sing the number rhyme Five Little Men in a Flying Saucer.  (link can be found below)

Five Little Men in a Flying Saucer

LITERACY 16th November


Songs and Rhymes

In your house, can you go on a Number Hunt?  How many number can you spot?  Can you show an adult all the numbers you spot around your home?  You can even try writing these.

Counting songs and rhymes are also a good way to recognise and order numbers.

Daily reading helps to develop letter and sound knowledge.  Pick up your favourite book or find a Bedtime Story on CBeebies.  


In nursery, we have been learning about colours.  Can you spot colours around your home?  Let's look for things that are red, blue and green.  Can you find and match different items of these colours?
