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.

Then 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 sit on the carpet and show good listening. My teacher will talk about the days of the week or the weather and I can sing songs and learn them.

I will go with my Keyworker to do an activity in a small group. I can practice my cutting or drawing or sticking or listening and lots of other things.

I can choose what I want to do now. I can play in the Home Corner/ the Problem Corner/ the Book Corner or I can go outside and play with the Construction or the Car Wash 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. Then we listen to the Tidy Up Time song whilst we tidy the toys away.

I will sit in a small group with my Keyworker and show good listening whilst we listen to a story/ share a song or play a special game.

Then I will go to the lunch table or wait until my teacher says I can go to my parent/ carer who is picking me up.

MUM/ DAD/ CARER

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.

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

Keyworker activity is focused skills-based learning in small groups, adult-led.

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.
