The interventions that were implemented in the preschool including staff bespoke training on mathematical development. Literacy and Numeracy boxes in all areas for children to access. Also a home library that was set up to encourage reading at home so children are getting a wide range of opportunities to listen to stories in various settings.
Reading project was set up via our website and included activities for children to join in with at home and in session, with video recordings and activities being shared for download, and also zoom sessions for children to join in with.
All staff attended bespoke training on mathematical development, which was focussed around some of the new resources we had purchased. This supported the staff in learning new ways to use the items to support all children with their learning.
The literacy and numeracy boxes took a little time to get prepared to assure there were resources available to support numeracy and literacy, whilst also relating to the area they were put into. These also needed regular upkeep due to children moving things to different areas.
The mini readers project took a little time to plan and assure all materials were accessible on the website. Deciding the stories for the term, making activities for download and filming myself reading the story and uploading onto website and youtube. Allowing parents to access at times convenient to them.
New resources were purchased to promote numeracy throughout the setting, inside and outside. This was to assure that all children had access to use numeracy resources in whichever area they had chosen to play in.
