Learning Corner

We're delighted to be open again having closed back in March following Covid-19 Goverment guidelines for all childcare providers to shut to all children except for those of Key Workers'.

 

During this challenging time we set up this Learning Corner as a way to give our Parents some fun activity ideas. We know lots of Parents found these activities helpful, and so even though we are back up and running, we thought we'd keep this Learning Corner! We hope you continue to find it useful.

We hope you're all managing a few walks during the week and thought these books would link nicely as the characters go for a walk. If you don't have these stories as physical books they might be nice to act out with some props, dolls, teddies or even puppets you have drawn yourselves.

Simple activities and play ideas to help you develop your child's communication skills and find out about their amazing early development.

Searchable site of thousands of quality teaching and interactive resources.

 

Making yoga and mindfulness fun for kids.​

A short Video, explaining to children in Early Years why we are staying at home - we hope you find it useful.

  • Read a favourite story together, the children have really been enjoying Julia Donaldson books, some of their favourites being, ‘Monkey Puzzle’, ‘The Smartest Giant in Town’, ‘Tabby McTat’ and ‘Room on the Broom’, you could share some of your favourite stories with us via a photograph on Learning book.

  • Sing some favourite songs, we all know Wind the Bobbin Up’ is one of our favourites and action songs are great to keep us all moving.

  • Encourage your child to join in counting to 10, this can just be reciting the numbers, counting objects, playing board games, counting the spots on the dice, etc. 

  • Make a colourful picture, you could display it in your window for anyone to see when passing.

  • Building with blocks, Lego, boxes, etc. write a list of things your child would like to make, a rocket, a rollercoaster, an amazing roller machine!, choose to make one weekly or more often depending on how elaborate they are!

​We hope you have lots of fun and look forward to you sharing any photos of activities on the Learning book ‘at home’ tab. 

Your child’s key person can link your photos to the Early Years Curriculum to enable us to continue to support your child in their learning while we are away from the Pre-school.
