This beautifully bright journey of self-discovery has been created specifically for younger children (preschool and reception age). We believe that learning should predominantly be through play, which this pack actively encourages. The 84 pages of activities should spark children’s imaginations, prompting them to interpret things in their own unique way. They will almost certainly be motivated to come up with spin-off activities and games.
We have developed this pack in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage framework, so that the activities help children develop in the seven key areas of learning. These are:
- communication and language
- physical development
- personal, social and emotional development
- understanding the world
- expressive arts and design
Among other things, this curriculum contains activities exploring:
- personal information
- the home
- parts of the body
- the senses
- favourite things
- counting on and back
- fine and gross motor skills
- reading and writing
- size order
- people who help us
- articulating ideas
- giving opinions
- taking turns
- initial sounds
- following instructions
- arts, crafts and design opportunities
The pack is suitable from the point that your child is experimenting with mark making and is able to verbally communicate their thoughts and ideas. Children at this early stage will need adult support as is appropriate for them. If there are parts you feel they are not yet ready for, simply skip or adapt them. it’s a great resource to return to time and time again. Children really benefit from repetition as they are acquiring new skills so you can print extra copies of activities from the digital file as needed. There will likely be big differences in a child’s response to a task a year apart. The pack also becomes a special keepsake of your child’s development.
Incredible Me is ideal for preschool and reception age children and depending on the individual child, they should be able to do lots independently.
The activities are designed to prompt discussion and to be adaptable for different children. For example, if your child is not yet writing you could scribe their ideas. Another child may be able to copy something you have written or trace your writing, others will be able to write independently. Whichever way your child completes the activities please be assured that they are learning lots.
Many of the tasks could take several hours or be spread over a number of days, try to let your child set their own pace. Equally, some of the activities could be done more than once as your child might like to play a game for a second time or design a few versions of something. You can always print extra copies of these activities from the digital file if they wish to do so.
We believe that children learn best when they are motivated and interested by what they are doing. We are sure that your incredible one will find lots of engaging activities that they are keen to try in the pack. The best part is there’s plenty of educational value in every single one of them!
It is so important to help children develop their skills and knowledge by providing them with a rich variety of learning experiences. With this curriculum your child will have opportunities to experiment and investigate. They will build their reading, writing and comprehension skills. Their critical thinking, problem solving and resilience will be encouraged. Numbers, letters and key concepts will be reinforced. They will strengthen those vital fine and gross motor skills as well as increase their understanding of their own preferences, emotions and opinions.
The pack by no means covers the entire framework but it is intended to give you lots of ideas which you can build on and extend in a way that works for your child as they develop their understanding of their abilities, character, and feelings.
Some of our activities require resources that you may not have readily at home but can be purchased inexpensively online or at the supermarket. Some tasks involve the use of things like scissors, knives and ovens; children will need appropriate supervision for these.
If you purchase the digital file please be aware that not all of the 84 pages require printing. Our packs are bright and vibrant to make them appealing to children and as such it may not be economical to print them in their entirety. Many pages are suitable to be read on a device without the need for printing. Please be mindful of this.
Our hard copies come in stunning full colour print with a complimentary PDF version so you can print extra pages as you wish. The print quality is far superior to a home printer and they are professionally bound with thick covers. 2nd class postage and packaging within the UK is also included in the purchase price. If you would like faster postage please contact us for a custom invoice.
We aim to dispatch packs within two working days of purchase and estimated delivery for this pack is 2nd February; we cannot control or guarantee delivery times.
