The Nursery and Reception Activity eBook is a beautifully illustrated guide linked to early learning goals for children in Nursery and Reception. With fun and familiar themes divided into six activities per section, this eBook puts the fun into learning from the word go. Each activity is short to keep your child engaged, and so you can limit your time investment to just as long as you have. And when it comes to fun activities such as becoming a dinosaur hunter, making collages or creating a textured farmyard picture, all the things you will need are items that you probably already have at home.
With easy-to-follow instructions, a clear description of the areas of learning and development along with age groups for attainment, your child will love learning while they play. Plus, complementing the activities are templates for writing postcards, mini board games, cut outs, activity sheets and many more hands-on things to do, discuss and explore.
Your child will do lots of phonics learning at school – so why not use games to help them put their new skills into practice at home? Our Phonics games learning pack, created by a KS1 teacher (and parent), offers ten games and activities to choose from. Everything you need to start playing, from instructions to game boards and a sound die, is included in your download – print off your bingo counters, sharpen your pencils and have some fun!
