Class 1

Friday 17th July 2020


Hello boys and girls. Today is the last day of Nursery class. It has been wonderful seeing many of you over the last two weeks. You have grown so much, and I can see you have all been trying really hard to write your name and your numbers.


We hope you all have a lovely summer holiday, and we look forward to seeing you again when you return in September to Class 2 or Class 3. To best prepare you for Reception class it would be great if you continued practising the following regularly:


  • Writing your name independently
  • Counting to 10 and back to 0
  • Writing numbers 0 to 10
  • Reading and ordering numbers to 10
  • Counting to 20 ( and beyond if you can)
  • Writing letters s, a, t, p, i, n
  • Overwriting words and sentences written by an adult in high lighter pen
  • Putting on your coat and doing up the zip or buttons
  • Taking off and putting on your own shoes
  • Checking all your school clothes and belongings have your name on them
  • Drawing lots of pictures and carefully colouring them in.


Have fun and say a big THANK YOU to all the grown ups or older brothers and sisters who have helped you learn when you couldn't come to school. See you soon wink




Thursday 16th July 2020


Hello boys and girls, we hope you are well.

Let's keep practising our numbers:


Count to 10 forwards and back whilst skipping, hopping, jumping on two feet, clapping your hands or tapping your knees.


Count up to 20 starting off quiet and getting louder and louder and LOUDER!



Find items in your home that have patterns on them-can you copy the patterns? and colour them to match?

Go outside and find some patterns in nature. Can you describe, draw and colour them?


Which is your favourite pattern and why?

During the summertime, lots of us visit the funfair. 

  • Have you been to the funfair before? What was your favourite ride? Were there any rides you didn’t enjoy?


  • To warm up this morning, why not move to Jack Hartmann’s ‘Tooty Ta At The Fair’:


  • Perhaps you would like to watch Peppa Pig enjoying a day at the funfair?


  • Besides rides, there are lots of fun games to play at the funfair. Perhaps you could make your own game and have fun playing it with your family:

​​​​​​​Have lots of fun!

Hello everyone, we hope you are well.

Sometimes boys and girls like to visit the Zoo or wildlife park to see animals. Maybe today you could look in books or on Google to find picture of animals. Which animal is your favourite and why?

Maybe you could draw or paint your animal and find out where it lives in the wild. What does it eat? Where does it sleep? What special things does it do? Maybe you could let us know on Twitter.

Maybe you could create a poster all about animals or create a leaflet.

Have a great day!

Friday 10th July 2020


Hello boys and girls, we hope you are well smiley


Sometimes during the summer children and their parents like to visit the circus. At the circus there are lots of performers who like to put on shows. There might be clowns, acrobats, musicians, dancers, hoopers, tightrope walkers, jugglers, magicians or unicyclists.


Maybe you could do a Google search to find out more about the shows that go on in a circus.

There is a Woolly and Tig episode you might like on YouTube called The Clown - maybe you could find that too!


Why not try some circus yoga

Or maybe you would like to make a Circus tent collage, or paint a picture of a clown.

If you were in a circus what would you like to be or do? Maybe you could lets us know on Twitter.


It was lovely seeing lots of you in school this week! We hope you all have a lovely weekend wink

Have a look on YouTube and find 'The Ice Cream song' and 'Ice Cream Everywhere - Stories for Kids'.    Enjoy!



Friday 3rd July 2020

Bore da boys and girls, we hope you are well.

Today you might like to listen to the song about 'Five little Crabs' on You tube.

Then you could play a finding game:

Find 1 teddy bear

Find 2 towels

Find 3 forks

Find 4 spoons

Find 5 pencils

Find 6 shoes

Find 7 books

Find 8 items of food

Find 9 socks

Find 10 coins

We are really looking forward to seeing some of you next week and the following week, and will be in touch shortly.


Today you might like to find the story of 'Sharing a Shell' on You tube and have a listen.

Some of you may even have the book. Talk about the characters in the story, and think about why it is important to share. Maybe you could then draw or paint some of the characters or you could create a collage. Here are a few ideas:

Maybe you could then make a list of all the things you like sharing, and then make a list of things you don't like sharing. Ask your family members what they like or don't like sharing too!


Have a great day!

Hello boys and girls, I hope you are all well smiley


The sun seems to have gone away for a little while but its really important that we remember to apply sun cream when it does come out. Here are a few illustrations to help you.

When the days are sunny ask a grown up to help you apply sun cream yourself, as your teachers are not able to do this.

Maybe you could create a poster to show your friends how to keep safe in the sun and share it with them smiley 


Have a great day!

Friday 26th June 2020


Good morning boys and girls. Bore da! We hope you are well!


On Sunny days like yesterday, many people like to visit the beach. A really fun thing to do is build sandcastles.

Maybe you could watch a film clip on BBC i player today - Wolly and Tig, Series 2:1 Sandcastles.


Then maybe you could create a lovely bucket and spade of your own using collage shapes. Ask a grown up to cut squares, circles, rectangles and triangles for you. Sort all the shapes into the four categories and count how many of each you have. Then you can stick them like the picture below.


Remember to keep practising writing your name - this is so important!

If you visit a beach soon or have a sand pit, you could practise writing your name and numbers there too!


Have a lovely weekend!smiley




Thursday 24th June 2020


Hello  pirate friends! We hope you are well. We are coming to the end of our pirate topic; have you enjoyed it?

Today maybe you could paint a picture, make a collage or dress up and role play being a pirate. Use all the information you have found out during the past few weeks to help you. Talk to other people in your house about what you have found out. What have been your favourite things? What is your pirate name? What would your pirate ship be called? What does your pirate outfit look like? This is called reflecting on our leaning - remembering what we have found out and telling other. Maybe you could send some pictures to twitter too.

Or maybe today you are enjoying yourself outdoors in your pirate swimming pool smiley

  • Pirates were always on the look out for treasure. What do you treasure the most? (It doesn’t have to be possessions, it could be your family, pets or friends).



  • If you made a treasure chest last week, perhaps you could collect some precious photographs of your family, pets or friends (or anything else that you treasure) to place in there for safe keeping. If you haven’t made a treasure chest, perhaps you would like to make and decorate one using an old delivery box or something similar.


  • Can you complete the following counting exercises? If you haven’t got a printer, either video record your counting skills or draw similar pirate pictures to count. Write the correct numbers alongside.

This weekend Buddy wanted to find out more about parrots after he had listened to the story of  'Polly Parrot Picks a Pirate'. You can find this story on You Tube:


Buddy then made some beautiful artwork and sent it to his family, because he is missing them all mail Can you make some parrot artwork like Buddy? Maybe you can send it to someone you miss seeing at the moment.


Ask an adult to help you write the letter P for parrot.   How many things can you think of that start  with the letter P? Draw some pictures of all the things you think about.


If you had a parrot what would you call them? Send all you parrot names idea to our Nursery Twitter page.

 Good morning my pirate friends! We hope you are well smiley

A big thank you to everyone who for sharing all their fabulous work with us on Twitter. We love seeing it!

1. Lets start off today with some Pirate Yoga

2. Next you could make a pirates telescope from a piece of rolled up paper or the centre of a kitchen roll. Use your telescope to play 'I spy' and look for words, shapes, colours, toys etc. You could draw some circles on paper and draw all the things you see through your telescope.

3. Write numbers on cards and try to find some coin treasure to match. Keep counting up to 10 and back down to 0, and keep practising writing your numbers.


Have a great day our pirate friends!

  • Why not start the day with a fun pirate yoga workout by clicking on the following YouTube link:


  • We thought you could make and decorate a pirate telescope today, to use on a pirate treasure hunt:



  •  How many of the following items can you find on your pirate treasure hunt (or perhaps you would rather make your own list of treasures to find?) Don’t forget to use your pirate telescope to help    you search for them!



  • Ask an adult to help you write some simple clues on a piece of paper to help someone find these items. Example: look under the plant pot, look in the flower bed, look in the watering can etc. Roll up the piece of paper and place it in a bottle (plastic if possible, for safety reasons). Hopefully someone will find your message in a bottle and will be able to hunt for the treasures too!πŸ˜ƒ

Last night Buddy Bear had a lovely relaxing bath and he took in lots of toys to play with them. Some of the toys stayed on top of the water - this is called floating, but some of the toys went under the water all the way to the bottom of the bath. This is called sinking.


Here are some activities about floating and sinking that you might like to do.

  • You could find out about different materials and predict then test which ones float and sink.
  • You could make a chart to show your results like the one above.
  • You could make some boats using different materials and see which are the best at floating.
  • You could make a boat and see how many of toy characters it can hold before it sinks.
  • You could have a lovely bubble bath like Buddy Bear and see which of your toys float or sink.


Hope you have a lovely weekend, from all of your teachers smiley

This morning Buddy Bear has been helping Mrs Squires sort out all the jars in the pantry. Some are full, some are half-full and some are empty.


Maybe you could look to find some jars and sort and order them like Buddy. Or maybe an adult could draw some jars for you and then you can add collage materials like the ones below.

You could also fill up your toy boxes to full, half-full and empty, or maybe try a glass of water.


Keep practising your yoga and exercises and remember we are all missing you and hope to see you soon blush

Let's get creative again today. Maybe you would like to create some fish puppets and an octopus so that you can role-play the story of Rainbow Fish. There are some ideas below. Remember you could recycle materials you have at home and use an old cardboard box as an ocean.

You could act out the story of Rainbow Fish and think of questions you might like to ask Rainbow Fish and Octopus if you met them. When you have finished send us some pictures to Twitter. Maybe you could start with 'Why?' questions. 'Why did you not want to share?', 'Why did you go to see octopus?'

We hope you are well and enjoyed our very sunny half-term. Happy June!


As always your teachers are missing you very much, but there's also someone else who is missing you - can you guess?

Buddy Bear is missing you so much too! Buddy Bear stayed in school for several weeks wondering if you were coming back, but he got sad and lonely so now he is staying with Mrs Squires for a while. Yesterday Buddy phoned Mrs Morgan to ask how the fish Fflic and Fflac were doing.

Mrs Morgan said they were very well and their scales were really shiny, just like Rainbow Fish. Buddy didn't know who Rainbow Fish was so we looked on Youtube and found a story all about him. Maybe you would like to listen to this story too.



After listening to the story Buddy decided to paint Rainbow Fish and he added lots of shiny foil scales. Buddy sent his picture to Mrs Williams. Mrs Williams loved it and sent Buddy a picture that she has painted. Maybe you could paint a picture too and send it to someone you love. Also send us a photograph on Twitter.

When you have finished painting:

Talk about the colours you have used - in Welsh and English.

Count how many of each colour scales you have  - in Welsh and English

Talk about what other animals and plants might live in the ocean.


Then you might want to move around and try out one of Andy's Wild workouts- series 1: Under the Sea on


Have fun!

Good afternoon,

Below there is a link to some FAZ fun ideas for half-term.

Also remember 'Smartie the Penguin' over the holidays; Smartie reminds us to stay safe online - 'Before you tap and click, you need to stop and think and tell someone.' Remember if something doesn't look right, tell an adult.  Happy half - term smiley

I expect lots of you will be enjoying playing in your gardens or somewhere out doors today and over the weekend. Let's make some butterflies to hang up in our gardens or homes.

You will need a cereal box, pens or paints, scissors and string.

Draw a beautiful butterfly and ask a grown up to help you cut it out. You can paint it, maybe add some recycled materials or leaves and flowers and then use the string to hang from a tree or fence to make your garden look extra special. Remember to send some of your designs to Twitter so we can see them.



Thursday 14th May


Bore da!


We hope you are well; it's another sunny day!


Keep doing the exercises today, maybe you could do them in the garden. Why not see how many of each of the exercises you can do in a minute. A grown up could help you make a tally chart to record how many of each you do.


Buddy Bear has been feeling worried too this week. He is missing you all and wonders when he will see you again. Could you design a lovely patterned blanket for him? Maybe using a two or three repeat pattern and then you could show it to him when you next see him. You could start off by drawing a big square and then divide it up into little squares. How many squares have you made? What motifs are you going to add? I'm sure your lovely designs will make him feel much better.

Maybe you could write Buddy a little message and tell him that you miss him and hope to see him when it is safe to do so.

Happy designing and letter writing smiley

Hello everyone!smiley
We hope you are all well and feeling energetic!


  • Here are some exercises for you to try, to kickstart your day:


  • Continuing with pattern, we are going to make some worry butterflies today. Draw a big butterfly and colour a pretty pattern on it. Which colours have you used? Can you name them in English and Welsh?



  • Listen to the following story:



  • Now name any worries you have, talk about these worries and ask a grown up to write them on your butterfly. 


  • Play a game with your butterfly. Throw it in the air, counting how many times (in English and Welsh), and let your worries fly away. 
    Can you catch your butterfly?
  • Draw a picture of a net in your class book and put your captured butterfly in the net. 
  • Hopefully your worries have now gone and you are feeling happy. The butterfly is only beautiful because the caterpillar was so braveπŸ›πŸ¦‹πŸ˜ƒ


Have a lovely day. 
Please share your work on our Twitter page, @BryncNursery - Diolch!

  • We are going to start looking at patterns today, so let’s warm up by doing Jack Hartmann’s ‘Pump up the Pattern’ dance on YouTube:



  • Look around your home or outside. Can you see any patterns, maybe on cushions, curtains, bed covers, walls, patios? Can you describe these patterns?


  • Make a pattern by building a tower using blocks/Lego or other toys. Then use coloured pencils to draw your pattern:

We would love to see your work, so please tweet it to @BryncNursery

Hello everyone we hope you are well and have had a lovely weekend.

The teachers had a meeting this morning via the internet and we said how much we were missing you all, and how proud we are of all the playing and learning you are doing with your families at home.


Last week we began making books to record some of your adventures. Today lets carry on and add a few more pages. You might want to include:

  • My favourite place to visit
  • My favourite movie
  • My Favourite game to play
  • My favourite clothes to wear
  • My favourite bedtime story

Maybe you could add two more pages to your book.  Remember to ask a grown up to help write the contents page. They could write using a high lighter pen, and you could write over it in pencil. Then keep your book safe and we can add to it from time to time. Your teachers and friends would love to see your book when we are able to return to school.


Tomorrow we are going to be looking at patterns; patterns in the environment and making patterns of our own. Remember to keep busy and have lots of fun!

  • Thursday 7th May

  • You will need a dice for this morning’s physical activity. If you haven’t got a dice, perhaps you could make one.



  • We are going to continue with our VE Day theme today. Samuel Morse helped invent the Morse Code in 1836. Look at the following Morse Code. Can you write your name using this code? 


  • People show such bravery during wartime and are awarded bravery medals. Can you make a bravery medal? You are being very brave during this unusual lockdown and certainly deserve a medal, so when you finish making it, wear it with pride!


       Finally, some food for thoughtπŸ€”

  • If you are having a tea party to celebrate VE Day tomorrow, what food are you preparing? Sandwiches, fruit, cakes or biscuits? Think about the shapes you can see, for example, rectangular, square or triangular sandwiches, circular cakes.


We would like to say a great big thank you, to you and your family, for the fabulous work you are doing at home! Your efforts are amazing, you are working so hard. We also love seeing what you are doing on our Twitter page, so thank you for sending us your photographs and videos. 

We won’t be setting work tomorrow, so have a wonderful time celebrating VE Day and have a super Bank Holiday weekend! We’ll be back on Monday with lots of lovely activities for you!

  • The sun is shining brightly today, so let’s start with some exercise, outdoors or indoors:



  • On Friday, there will be lots of celebrations taking place for VE Day to mark the 75th Anniversary! This simple video explains what VE Day is and why we celebrate it:



  • Why not celebrate on Friday by having your own tea party with your family, toys and teddies? First, make a simple invitation asking them to join you. Where and when will the tea party take place? Do you need to wear anything special? 


  • Can you make a Union Jack πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ flag, hat or bunting for your tea party? 

Have a fun day planning this special occasion and share your creations with us on Twitter - @BryncNursery

  • My favourite foods - collages made from recycled materials, cut out pictures from magazines, draw/paint them.
  • My favourite toys - painting, drawing, photographs
  • When I grow up I want to be... - drawings and maybe ask a grown up to scribe for you

Monday 4th May

Good morning everyone, bore da!

We hope you had a lovely weekend and enjoyed some sunshine.


I know that lots of you are really enjoying reading at home, so this week we are going to make some books of our own. You might want to get some lose papers and stick/staple them together. Then your first job will be to design a cover. You could look at the covers of books you have at home for inspiration! The book is going to be about you, so you will need to include your name on the cover e.g. 'Alfie's Adventures', ' The Adventures of Lucy'.


Leave page 1 blank for now, then page 2 will be the contents page.

On page three draw a picture of your family and ask a grown-up to help you write their names.

On page 4 draw a picture of your house and say what you like doing at home ( you may want to include the garden).


Hello boys and girls,


It has been so lovely speaking to some of you and your parents over the past week via telephone. You are all working so hard at home, and keeping yourselves strong and healthy. It has been lovely catching up with your news; several babies have been born and lots of splashing around in pools and hot tubs has taken place smiley . I know lots of you have been working extremely hard to write your names independently and I have been really impressed with all the counting ( 0 to 10 and back down again). Keep up this fantastic work, and remember to thank your parents for all their hard work too.             We all miss you and hope to see you soon.

Best wishes

Mrs Squires

  • This is such a lovely, creative idea:

  • Can you create your own? Perhaps you could put this in a time capsule, along with other items to remind you of quarantine. This could be hidden somewhere, then rediscovered in the future, for you to look back on some lovely memories. 

Have fun! Remember to Tweet your photographs/videos to @BryncNursery.

Good morning boys and girls. We hope you have had a lovely weekend with your family and that you have had lots of fun! This week we are going to be focusing on 'New Life'. It is an important time of year when we think about new life - animals being born, plants begining to grow and Easter celebrations.

Here are some activities for today:


1. Go out into your garden, or look from your window and count how many plants or flowers you can see. You could ask a grown up to help you record them using tallies.


2. Draw a large oval egg on a piece of paper and decorate it using pencils, paint or pens. Then ask a grown up to help you cut it out. Remember keep the scissors straight and turn the paper.


3. Practice singing this rhyme and add actions of your own:

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,

Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.

All the kings horses and all the kings men,

Couldn't put Humpty together again.


Humpty Dumpty had a sore head,

Humpty Dumpty got into bed.

The king and the queen and the doctor too,

Put Humpty together with plasters and glue.


Take care, love  Nursery Staff

Look at the different materials you have chosen. Why do you think they will be suitable? How do the materials feel: rough, silky, smooth, squashy? How many words can you use to describe them? Build your nest. Whilst building it, think about it comfortable, big enough, warm, will it keep the rain out? Is there anything you would change if you could? Draw a picture of it in your class book. Over write the words ‘My nest is....’ and choose the best word to describe it. Take a photograph of your work and tweet it to @BryncNursery
