To help you through these challenging times  we have added some ideas for activities, games and songs you can try with your children at home. Please see download links below.


Included are some of our bible songs which the children can hopefully teach you - there are lots of actions to learn as well - ask them to demonstrate, or perhaps you can make up some new ones.


There are also some fun and educational ideas you can try at home, both indoors and outside, including a spring walk which you could do as part of your daily exercise. 


A selection of useful leaflets devised by the Redbridge Early Years team, which include a recipe for making playdough, sound and music ideas, water play and small worlds and the 'what to expect when' document which also includes some ideas to promote your child's home learning.


You may have seen lots of rainbow pictures appearing in your neighbour's front windows, these are to show support and love to each other and to know we are all in this together. You can download and print one of the rainbow pictures for your child to colour, or they can just make their own.


Why not try out our Mr Noah song whilst your child is creating their masterpiece and perhaps your child can teach you the sign for rainbow?


We would love to hear about your adventures during this time - so why not take a photo of your rainbow picture, or your child trying out some of our activities and send it to us by email - and with your permission we can add these to the website for others to enjoy.


Or perhaps you have some of your own ideas and suggestions ? we would love to hear all about them.


Have fun and take care of each other


We miss you, but hope to see you soon.
