Siobhan from Skylarks
Our new group activity, All Your Senses, starts on Friday 11th June and will take place every Friday morning until the end of term.
This group activity takes place upstairs in our largest room. It is aimed at pre-school children, but children of any age are welcome. A parent is expected to stay and take part with the child. As with all our indoor activities, during the pandemic, parents are expected to wear a face mask.
All Your Senses is a new group activity designed to engage your child's senses and to allow them to try out new textures, sounds and smells. The group is led by Siobhan, our Skylarks staff member who is a trained Early Years practitioner. This is a structured session where activities will be brought out one after another, designed to encourage children to participate in their own way and to enjoy interacting with their parent or carer.
Activities may include:
- hidden sounds
- dried pasta
- objects hidden in cold cooked spaghetti
- natural objects
- squishy bags of paint
- bubble wrap painting
- shaving foam colour mixing
These will be adapted to suit the ages, developmental stages and needs of the children who are booked in, so please book early to allow us preparation time.
Please let us know if your child has any allergies or intolerances such as wheat/gluten, so that we can provide alternatives, such as different types of play dough.
You can also book a session in our play room, either before or after All Your Senses. This needs to be booked separately:
Play session 1 10.00 – 10.30 This is a short play session before joining All Your Senses
Play session 3 11.30 – 12.00 This is a short play session after All Your Senses
