Dear Parents

We have put together some practical activities (based on your children’s current level of progress and development) which you and your child can do at home, some they can do independently, some will require support from an adult.

Please share your activities on Tapestry, we can then use this as evidence and are still able to assess their progress and development through the seven areas of learning within the Early Years Foundation Stage.   If you have got your child’s activity books from pre-school, please do add any activity sheets that you do together, with the date, then when we re-open please bring them back in as they form part of our assessment process. If you don’t have the book, please collate the pages and bring them in.   

We hope you find the home learning pack useful, please do keep in touch and let us know how you’re getting on. If you need further ideas, we will be putting regular updates and suggestions here, as well as on our Facebook page and through parent mail.

Please do all stay in touch in this uncertain time and look after yourselves 

From all at Cuckoo Meadow Pre-School

But first, here’s a little note from us all
