Workshops in the Early Years

This week, we had our first parent workshop and it was well attended with nearly 20 parents in the room. Parents learnt about the physical development of their child and how they can better support them at home. We shared a variety of activities with the parents allowing them to see the differentiation between the F1, F2 and F3 classes. Everyone went away knowing that it is not just about holding a pencil and writing but it is about exercising all of the body parts and muscles in order for their child to be able to write well. They also learnt that it is important to exercise both sides of the body not just the hand the child starts to write with, as this has an effect on the brain. If we exercise both sides of our bodies at a very young age, it supports our ability to be able to read and in our mathematical learning.

Everyone enjoyed the videos from Shonette Bason and Boogie Beebies. If you did not get a chance to come along to the session, please do have a look at the links below and try them out at home. You could give your child 2 tea towels to dance with if you don’t have any scarves or ribbons.

I have also added a link for the ‘Development Matters’ in the UK, as this is where we get our learning objectives from. Physical development is one of the Prime Areas of learning and has a big focus in our Early Years at BVIS.

Please try to encourage your children to do things by themselves at home, as this will help their physical development as well as their independence.
