We are so excited to be partnering with Tranmere Rovers football team to provide downloadable activity packs for you and your children.
Here’s what Tranmere Rovers said:
“Over the last seven months we have provided activity packs for adults and children during the lockdown period which have been a massive success and are happy to be able to continue to provide these.
Foundation Years Trust are a small, Wirral based charity. They recognise that parents are children’s first and most important educator. In fact, parents and carers have the biggest influence on children’s learning than anyone else. So FYT provide lots of useful information and tips so that parents can do more with their babies and toddlers.
Learning for 0-5’s is about having fun together and exploring the world around. Experts tell us that the more parents share books with their children, sing nursery rhymes and take time to chat with their little ones, the better children are able to learn, and the better prepared they are for school. The good news is, you don’t need lots of equipment or toys. You just need time, patience and a willingness to learn more about your child.
So here’s some fun activities to do with your little ones. Enjoy your time together and remember – parents really do make the difference.”

This week’s Adventures at Home is all about ‘small movements matter’. Join Jennie as she explains in her Talktime video about the importance of small movements for your child. We show how water play using tools such as whisks, ladles, or measuring cups, offers your child the chance to practice using their smaller muscles to coordinate their movements. We also have a fun activity idea – pretending to make and decorate your own playdough cupcakes - adding cupcake cases, candles, buttons, gems, beads, or whatever you have at home. Whilst playing your child will be strengthening their muscles in their arms, wrist, hands and fingers by manipulating the dough, and you can also take this opportunity to use lots of new words with your child, such as pat, poke, roll, squeeze etc.
