In spite of feelings of stress and uncertainty, this time at home also presents a special opportunity for some valuable time together with your children. Enjoy moments cuddling up together, reading stories and making some special memories during this time which will inevitably go down in the history books. Talk together about old memories, maybe share some old photos. Perhaps you have some photos from when you were young which you could talk about with your children. Read your favourite stories, your children's favourite stories. Take turns reading between family members; find some simple words where Dragonflies can have a turn too. Use junk boxes and plastics to create trains, planes and amazing structures like fortresses or Princess's castles. Bake, watch movies together and make dens inside. Make your time together count in a fun way. Most important of all, stay safe!
During your time at home, there will be a Dragonfly learning pack to have a go at each week. Take a look at the additional links to stories which I will read, as well as the e-book link which will connect you to some phonic books where you can practice reading yourselves.
I would love to see how you are getting on. Please send me photos or examples of the activities you have done to: email@example.com or post any photos or videos onto the blog. See the link below.
I can't wait to hear from you Dragonflies!
