As next week marks the beginning of our two week half term break we will not be setting weekly home learning tasks for these weeks. If you would like to continue with some activities, there are some Early Years websites listed below that you may find useful. Mrs Ireland has also sent some fun activities that build on some of R.E learning. Take a look by clicking the link below.

Mrs Ireland

 

Please enjoy a break, make the most of the sunshine and daily exercise. Be kind to yourself and to others and take care.

 

Hopefully we will see you soon,

The EYFS Team

 

Early Years Websites

Web sites for young children

Always review the sites ahead of time so that you are able to help your children find the best resources available within the sites. Some offer a great number of games, songs, stories, videos etc. so it is important to know the site well in order to support and develop your child’s learning.
