    Printed Twinkl Resources - Enjoy some 'bookish play' with these lovely resources from Twinkl. Two resources selected at random and other resources availavle to download. 


    Matching Animal Cards - Use the matching animal cards to begin discussions about animals in the zoo. These cards are great for recognition and vocabulary building, as well as beginning to talk about similarities and differences. 


    Playdough Mat - These mats are a great way to encourage multi-sensory creativity, as well as develop fine motor skills and hand strength. Follow the instructions on the mat, making choices about colour and design, shapes and texture. 


    Mark Making Card - These cards can help your little one practise new movements, shapes and patterns. Use a pencil, their finge ror any other tool you can think of! Mark making in the early years is when children intentionally start to draw their own lines, patterns or shapes using their bodies or tools. It is the first step towards writing and drawing.
