Learn Together Show and Tell

"Learn Together" is one of our platforms on how to support a good working relationship with parents.  Its aim is to support opportunities for home learning.  Parents will find all information regarding  pre-schoolers, their involvements,

their plans for the near future and what they enjoy doing.


"Learn Together" explains the themes pre-schoolers are exploring, important dates and ideas for supporting children's learning at home.  It also informs the parents about the pre-school show and tell ideas.  These are ideas always linked with the themes they are involved in and always arise from the children's interests and curiosity.


Reading preschool "Learn Together" brings the parents closer to the understanding of how we encourage children to develop knowledge and skills across as many areas of learning as possible.

It has been decided that Show and Tell will be Free Choice for 2-3 year olds.

Pre-school will be exploring; The Arctic & Antarctic
