Flying Start @ Saltash Are Back!

 

Over the last 2 weeks the Saltash children have enjoyed being back at nursery!

In preparation for going to school the Preschool  children have been working on their fine motor skills, threading, name writing, scissors.

 

 

We have had great fun in the garden making dinosaur worlds.

 

 

The baby and toddlers have been planting seeds and having great fun in the garden and getting messy with water play and painting!

All the preschool children have their own named pot filled with pencils, scissors, ruler, glue and a paintbrush and they have used these to take part in a variety of craft sessions.

In the garden the preschool have enjoyed using the magnifying glasses to look for bugs.

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.

Being school ready is all about developing important independence skills! Why not let your child have a go at dressing and choosing their own clothes to match the weather? Remember to gradually give them more independence to it all themselves, you will be surprised at how quickly they learn with the opportunity to try lots!
