Remote Learning in the Early Years

The remote learning we provide is a suggestion and offers ideas. If you feel that the activity is too difficult or too easy, please adapt them to suit your child.  The Early Years Team is always available to answer any questions or have some suggestions ready to differentiate tasks. We are always here to help during this uncertain time.  Below you will find a summary of what we offer when children have to isolate  or there is a full lockdown.

   

Daily Plans

Our Early Years team prepares daily plans that match the home/remote learning to the learning that is happening in school.  The plans are cross-curricular and include all areas of learning, many exciting activities and experiments, links to useful educational videos and inspirational photos to make it easier for families to follow the plan. The plans are differentiated between Nursery and Reception and are sent to every child in Early Years every morning. The plans are accompanied by PDF books of the week to read with your child.

Must Read Books

We love reading books and we believe in their power and their magic!  The Early Years Team compiled a list of essential reads that every child should read before they graduate from Early Years. Every Friday your child will receive a PDF version of the Must Read of the week and a pack with activities to do at home that are linked to the book. Snuggle together and make the reading time a very special time for your family!  Below you will find an examples.

Mindfulness

At Globe we prioritise well-being and we believe that Mindfulness is the key to provide your child with relaxation techniques and stress coping mechanisms, to support developing resilience and strong sense of self-confidence.

Every Monday your child will receive a pack via SchoolPing app with a link to a meditation or breathing session. The sessions are suitable for the whole family.  You will find an example below.
