Getting ready for school

All parents want their children to thrive when they start school. However, it can sometimes be tricky to know how to support your child as they embark on this new journey and often parents struggle to find fun and simple activities that they can do at home.

As a result, we have created a set of 5 short and engaging videos to support parents with this task. Each of our 5 videos contains 10 fun and simple activities, based on some of the Early Learning Goals, that will help get their child ready for school and learning.

These activities can be done with any preschool child at any time, but they are great to do over the summer holidays! They do not require any special resources and they can all be adapted to suit the needs of the child.

Each video has been created in collaboration with Norfolk County Councils Early Year’s Team, Library Service and Family Learning Team. Please see our videos below:
