West Berkshire Flying Start Poster
02 Jul
The Early Years Service Team has now created a West Berkshire school readiness poster – “ A Flying Start to School”. (see download) We hope that this will be a useful resource which will enable schools, settings and childminders to have a common language with regards to school readiness, supporting transition, and to help signpost parents of ways they can support their child prior to starting school. There is also a page on the West Berkshire directory which complements the poster and provides further information: www.westberks.gov.uk/flyingstart

01 Jul
New from e-Bug an e-story book ‘My Back to School Bubble’ ‘My Back to School Bubble’ aims to help children understand the new protective measures that may be in place at their school, in an age-appropriate way. It reinforces public health messages including the importance of hand and respiratory hygiene, while reassuring children that everyone makes mistakes, helping to combat feelings of anxiety, that have been reported by parents. The published story is available as a free download and can be found alongside our other COVID-19 resources on the e-Bug website. We hope to evaluate this resource and collect feedback to inform future projects. Please contribute via the feedback survey.
