'Let's get ready for school' Parent workshop


Activities to try at home

Tiny Happy People have produced a series of short videos with suggestions for games and activities you can do at home, which will support your child with a range of skills. They are fun and easy to do. Take a look here


Please take a look at our 'Parent Information Pack' which answers many of the frequently asked questions from parents.

Attached below is a link 'getting ready to start school'  as well as the Hampshire School Readiness document. Both of these provide great guidance on the fundamental skills which should be happening before any curriculum learning can take place. These are everyday things which will support your child's learning, awareness and development and can be completed by giving them experiences, being outdoors and questioning absolutely everything! Try starting sentences with 'I wonder if...?' or 'What do you think...?' and then allow them to think for themselves and be independent!
