Stretch ‘n’ Grow – Frozen special

Little Learners Literacy Workshops held at Hewish – December 2019 

‘’Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring not even mouse….’
Our last Literacy Workshop left us feeling all festive and excited for Christmas. A big thank you to Kim for running these fantastic workshops this year that so many of our families have enjoyed attending!

Little Learners Literacy Workshops held at Hewish – November 2019 

Following a short break from the workshops it was great to get stuck in again and explore a new story. The focus of the session was based upon the book PEEPO and the key objective was to explore ‘rhyme’.

Kim read the story to the children and gave them the opportunity to predict and anticipate what might happen next, they all had some fantastic ideas. After the story the children were able to explore the variety of follow on activities available including making their own telescope.

Diwali Look at Learning classroom event

What a great morning! If you were able to make it on Wednesday 23rd October, thank you for joining us! Our Little Learners enjoyed showing their families around their classrooms. Our learning challenges included making diva lamps, writing our name, designing a Rangoli pattern and making our own firework painting.

At the snack table alongside our fruit and milk, we had the opportunity to try vegetable pakoras, chapatis and pomegranate juice.

It is important to us to share learning with families, please use your Little Learners Tapestry account to share learning with their key person too.

Little Learners Literacy Workshops held at Hewish


Little Learners Literacy Workshops held at West Wick – June 2019

We were pleased to welcome families to our first of a series of Literacy Workshops, run by Kim Beynon. All of our Little Learner families are invited to two interactive sessions to learn about how to support their child’s literacy development.  Our aim is to  ensure all Little Learners are exposed to a wide and rich literary experience with ultimate high literacy acquisition.  We expect  that all participating children and families will benefit from an enjoyable shared and sustained thinking experience and hope that families use some of the new skills learned in their children’s home learning experiences.

Week one – Owl Babies

Week two – The Hungry Caterpillar

Week three – Slinky Malinky

Week four – Room on the Broom
