We are delighted to announce our new partnership with the Department for Educations initiative Hungry Little Minds!
Hungry Little Minds is a campaign that has set out to improve early communication, language and literacy skills in young children. They aim to do this through encouraging parents to spend time with their children by engaging in activities that support their child’s learning. With our ethos of supporting and educating children through 'Learning Made Fun' this is the perfect partnership.
The Department for Education identified that some children in the UK start school months behind their peers. This gap can grow as they move through the education system meaning that by the time they leave school they can be significantly behind their classmates. Just 5-10 minutes a day spent chatting, reading or playing can be enough to stimulate a child’s brain which will help set them up for school and beyond!
One of the ways that we will be working together is with our free, downloadable activity sheets. The activity sheets can be used to start a conversation with young children and to get little minds thinking whilst having fun together. They’re also free to download.
We’re extremely excited about this partnership and are delighted to be able to support the Hungry Little Minds initiative and children, click here to view the range of activity sheets.
