Ideas to Support Learning at Home

In this section we'll be posting ideas to support learning at home; we hope you'll find them useful and an opportunity for you and your child to have lots of fun home learning together. 

 

Lockdown Learning

Lockdown Learning:- As lockdown continues we thought this would be a great place to share  some wonderful lockdown learning ideas for all parents of young children who have chosen not to send their child/ren into their nurseries or pre-schools. Enjoy the fun and enjoy a cuppa while your child enjoys their fun.

  • Go on a colour, number or letter walk around the community. Make a tick chart, attach it to a piece of scrap cardboard to form a clipboard, give your child a pencil and see how many colours, numbers or letters they can find on their walk that match the tick chart.
  • Encourage your child to look around the home for some story props to correlate with their favourite book; they can then create a small world scenario around the book while re-telling the story; great for literacy.
  • Role-play is a firm favourite with early years children and can be created very easily at home at no cost; themes can be various - a party with teddies and dolls, a vets, hospital or shop; the list is endless.
  • Make playdoh; here is a link to making your own at home with your children using basic store cupboard ingredients. Children won't even need tools, encourage poking, rolling with fingers, pulling and squeezing; all great for developing gross and fine motor skills https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/howto/guide/playdough-recipe.
  • ‘Hungry little minds’ is a fabulous 'go to' for some really fun stimulating activities for all children from 0 – 5 years. https://hungrylittleminds.campaign.gov.uk/#2
  • If music and dance is a firm favourite of your child’s, then Music Mike takes some beating; he offers some fabulous interactive music sessions guaranteed to have you and your child moving and singing; follow this link to learn more about the wonderful sessions he offers http://musicwithmike.co.uk/

                                    In the meantime take care, stay safe and we'll see you very soon. 

Thank you for all the lovely ideas, 'E' would like to try re-telling a story later.
