For those of you who are isolating or have decided not to return to pre school during lockdown here are some materials and ideas to help you this week. Our home learning theme is winter.

You will find lots of free resources to print on Twinkl for ages 3-5. https://www.twinkl.co.uk/home-learning-hub

Here you’ll find a set of free activities for you and your child, updated daily and designed to make each day of the week as easy as possible during a school lockdown. Expect home learning activities, crafts, weekend fun, games, parenting blogs and much more. We also host great content from our partners, including Joe Wicks, Peppa Pig and many others!Everything you need for the next day’s learning and fun will be listed the day before, giving you enough time to get prepped and set up. If you’re looking for fun games to entertain your child, extra learning based activities, or just a way of adding a bit of routine into your day – you’ll find it here, and it’s entirely free.

Play a listening game ‘snowman says’, where the leader is a snowman and gives

instructions such as “Snowman says, touch your buttons.” “Snowman says, touch

your carrot nose.” “Snowman says clap your mittens.”

Make

some Salt Dough with the children and use it to create some

snowman models. Provide paint or small decorations for the children to decorate

their snowman model. (https://www.yummytoddlerfood.com/activities/the-best-salt-dough-ornaments/)

A winter themed small world will help to encourage lots of imaginative

play. Use existing resources such as playgrounds, or even dinosaurs, and give

them a wintery makeover using fake snow, desiccated coconut or simply a white

fabric base.
