Rosie would like you to watch https://youtu.be/Iou5LV9dRP0 this video of the Bear Hunt story, which is read by the man who wrote it.  Rosie really likes listening to him reading it.  She likes the sounds he makes, as he goes on the bear hunt!  Do you have this book at home?  If you do, can you tell the story like Michael Rosen using the sounds he makes? 

Please find below the latest ideas of what you can do with your child at home if self-isolating or if your child is well and you have decided to keep them at home for the timebeing.

Below you will find further ways in which you can support your child's learning at home:

The government have produced some new guidance and resources for parents with children in the early years, to support their children’s learning at home during the Covid-19 outbreak. You will find the new content on https://www.gov.uk/guidance/help-children-aged-2-to-4-to-learn-at-home-during-coronavirus-covid-19?utm_source=Foundation+Years&utm_campaign=61d2309c31-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2019_03_21_05_01_COPY_01&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_8f9a6de061-61d2309c31-321567609&mc_cid=61d2309c31&mc_eid=58601a4ce3
