Unfortunately, Pre-school Room 1 remains closed until further notice and
we are all missing the children.
During these times, there are many things the children can be enjoying -
www.busythings.co.uk has lots of fun and educational EYFS games that the children will enjoy and you can sign up for a free 4 week trial.
www.phonicsplay.co.uk Click Resources then Phase 1 - this includes a few games to help the children's Letters and Sounds skills.
www.twinkl.co.uk/offer and enter the code - PARENTSTWINKLHELPS
This website is full of EYFS printable resources that the children usually enjoy using in our classroom.
Every morning, at 9am, Joe Wicks (the Body coach) is doing a free children's
PE workout on YouTube. Just search Joe Wicks.
Look out for Zoo's doing live streams so the children can watch the animals from the zoo, such as Chester zoo and Edinburgh zoo.
Whilst the weather is nice, in your back garden, let the children use a paintbrush and cup of water to do water painting - they love to do this at Pre-school, or if you have any chalks - let them make big marks on patio flags.
Read stories, play games, sing nursery rhymes or join in with your child's play.
Try to limit the time they have on devices each day.
This is quality time with your child and at this age they learn through all that they do.
I have attached an easy to make Playdough recipe and Moon sand recipe too.
Please everyone stay at home, take care and stay safe, we can do it!
Hope to see you all soon.
Kerry and the Pre-school team. xx
