  • Think u know – the online safety service have produced some new resources for keeping your child safe online – they have downloadable work books for you and your child to complete to help them learn more about online safety. https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents/
  • The story of Mr Tongue – this is a fun little story to encourage the movement of the tongue. If you are concerned about your child’s speech please speak to a member of staff, alternatively look at https://salt.ecch.org/ for advice. 
  • Take a look at the video’s from the Mid Norfolk Kidz Klub team. Usually Kidz Klub run a free monthly Saturday morning club and give primary school aged children the opportunity to engage with messy and fun games, craft, singing and learning about God. Matt also visits local schools for lunch time clubs and we would definitely recommend Kidz Klub for the future! (For this period also check out Matt’s weekly little Kidz videos aimed at those missing their parent and toddler groups) https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcxdQiPDuETrF6wDdqviKrw/videos

If we are unable to contact you we will work down your list of contacts - please ensure these details are kept up to date. Should the preschool be closed for weather or other unplanned purposes, we will update with information via our website http://www.firststepsashill.co.uk and will send a group email to you.
