'Opportunity For All To Succeed'

Puffins Pre-School 

 

                           

                                                             As we are currently learning and working remotely we will be updating this page  with learning activities reflecting

                                                                                                                          the learning which would be done in the classroom. 

 

  • We appreciate that children at this age need lots of practical and active learning opportunities.  Short focus times (15 minutes) are a better option for children at this age and they need lots of time to repeat processes to fully understand concepts.
  •  To support the children’s personal, social and emotional development there will be a daily story time session at 11.20am on Zoom. We encourage all children to take part in this, as it will enable them to interact with the adults and see their peers. A link to the sessions will be sent to you from the school office.
  • Work packs can also be collected for your child from school. 
  • If you would like to send in pictures of what you child has been doing please email them to Livingstonepuffins@gmail.com

 

              Recommended daily activities at home

  • Reading a variety of books. Learning number skills, counting, mark making and learning shapes. Physical activities such as, running, races, ball games, skipping, dancing, going to the park and making obstacle course using everyday items. It is important to give children opportunities to be active throughout the day. Singing songs, creating own rhythms and musical stories. Taking part in craft activities such as drawing, painting, collage, junk modelling, cutting and sticking activities.

              Thank you for your continued support.

The children in Puffins are starting out in their journey and we do lots of learning through play. Learning can sometimes be messy so if we come home dirty we have had fun!
