Hello Squirrels,

Please find at the bottom of the page, various documents which I hope you will find helpful to use at home which does not require a printer.

You can find activities to support the four areas of learning: Cognition, Communication, Social and Emotional and Physical below.


This term’s topic is Conservation and you can find activity ideas linked to our topic stories (Michael Recycle, Dear Greenpeace) at the bottom, there is also an additional story by Twinkl – Messy Magpie, which you can access below – see links and attachments.

Please do upload photos/comments on what you have been doing at home on the Evidence For Learning app where we can keep in touch.
