Flying Start @ Marjon Make A Rainbow!

This week we have been making rainbow invitations. We heard that some of the NHS staff that were living on the Marjon campus as they were having to isolate away from their families due to their job roles and were feeling a little lonely.

Therefore we have created some rainbow pictures inviting them to our daily wake up shake up session in the car park to encourage social distancing.

Flying Start Home Learning Continues…!

Flying Start upload weekly home learning plans to your child’s online learning story!

Each week and sometimes twice a week, you will find an activity idea delivered to your child’s eyLog learning story! You will get a notification in your emails and then can see the easy to read plan which has been written for your childs’s age and stage in learning.

The plans have been written by experienced Flying Start staff and they target areas across the whole curriculum, but using items that you will have at home… so you don’t need to go out and buy anything fancy!

 

If your child needs some speech and language support, you will find some plans are targeted for this area of development, telling you exactly how you can support their development.

All we ask, is you give them a go and if possible upload a little photo or video back onto their learning story so we can see their progress.

Keep your eyes peeled, every now and again there will be competitions and fun to get involved with!

The children have been creating their own ball runs in the garden. It is a great way to test their problem-solving skills and practice their turn taking. The big children even encouraged the younger children to try by making the run lower for them to participate.
