LOOK WHAT I CAN DO

When I first arrive I can find my peg with my name and picture on, hang up my coat and bag, put my book bag in the Book Bag Box and give my lunchbox to a teacher.

Then I will find my name on the board and choose a Busy Fingers activity from the selection laid out.

When I hear the tambourine jingling I will stop what I’m doing and wiggle my fingers in the air.
We listen to the Tidy Up Time song whilst we tidy the toys away and find a space to sit on the carpet.

I will go with my Keyworker to do an activity in a small group. I can develop my skills and extend my learning.

I can choose what I want to do now. I can play in the Home Corner/ the Mark Making Area/ the Book Corner or I can go outside and play with the Construction or the Messy Play Activities etc.

When I’m hungry I can go and sit at the snack table and have a drink and a snack.

When I hear the tambourine jingling I will stop what I’m doing and wiggle my fingers in the air. We will listen to the Tidy Up Time song whilst we tidy the toys away.

I will sit in a group with my friends and show good listening whilst we listen to a story and sing my favourite songs.

I will go to the lunch table to have my lunch or wait until my parent/ carer arrives to collect me and listen for my teacher to call my name.

PARENTS/CARERS

We encourage children to explore their independence, identify their own name and practice putting coats on and off. You can help your child by encouraging them to do it themselves.

Sharing in tidying away the toys we’ve played with are crucial social skills and they make Preschool life fair and stress-free.

Keyworker activities are adult led and focus on each individual child's development to extend their learning and skills.

The activities available will be rotated and varied to develop different skills and they will be available inside and outside. The key point is your child chooses what they want to do and where they play.

A rolling snack is available for children when they’re ready. All children will be encouraged to take it at some point.

Strong listening skills are fundamental building blocks for learning phonics and being prepared for school.

To ensure the children's safety we encourage them to wait on the carpet until a member of staff calls their name.
