What have Early Years been up to?
As schools will be closing for most children from Monday, learning opportunities will be provided online. For Early Years, it is our aim to update these each day when we would have been in school, starting from Monday. Please check-in regularly to find out what your child can do. We will also add links to the Early Years web page to websites that can provide support. It would be great if you added photos or explanations of some of the things the children are doing onto their tapestry pages. This will enable us to keep communication between home and school going.
You will notice the blue box, directly above this one, named, ‘Home learning links.’ By clicking on the round link buttons, you will be able to access links to websites and learning on a daily basis.
Many thanks and stay healthy.
The Early Years team

Use a milk carton to create an elephant – see picture below or another wild animals
On a sunny day use your animal toys to create a shadow – What causes the shadow? Can you draw round the shadow? Can you make the shadow bigger or smaller? – see photo below
You could go on your own lion/animal hunt. Perhaps draw a map to follow and find the animal.
Pretend you a saw a wild lion – what would you do? You could record this a picture, sentence or just talk about it with you.
