Hello and welcome to the Busy Explores page.
We hope to be able to provide you with a range of activities to do with your child/ren whilst at home during this time. As well as point you in the right direction for some useful websites and activity links.
Our aim is to encourage play based activities that develop skills and provide something different for you to share together.  We would love to see your learning at home and would encourage you to email photos for us to share on this page.  Additionally if you have some successful activities that you would like to share we would love to hear from you.
We have also included some Phase 1 phonics planning.  Phase 1 is such an important part of phonics, setting the foundations for future learning.  Your child would normally be immersed in phase 1 phonics within their nursery setting and this cannot be replicated in quite the same way.  However, we recognise the importance of these early phonics skills and so have developed a series of activities to help you and your child develop some of the key skills for learning whilst at home.  It is not meant to be a formal lesson and most activities can be done inside or outside (which is encouraged) in a fun and engaging way.  We hope you enjoy exploring these tasks together. 
Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any queries or questions. 
Additionally if you have any successful, exciting and engaging activities you would like to share with others we would love to feature them as part of this page.
