Parents visit day


 Share

Recommended Posts

Yes we have an open week - because not all parents can make just one day. We encourage the parents to just come and join in. They play with the children, share stories, help with arts and crafts. We also encourage the parents to sit and look at their child's Learning Journey with them and discuss the things in it. It works really well and the parents love coming in to see us just as we are - we don't do anything special but just carry on as we always do!!!

We held a messy play session and invited parents to join in. Had mainly mums but one dad came. We gave each family a book of messy play activities that we had had out on the day which had recipes for play dough, gloop, slime, etc and and a little goody bag containing some of the items they needed in little pots/containers, eg borax substitute and pva glue to make slime. We also included details of what the children gained from these activities, e.g. refining fine motor skills to get ready for writing to explain that messy play has a purpose other than just making a mess!

 

We chose messy play as we had a lot of children starting who freak out at getting their hands dirty with the slightest bit of paint etc, so it would seem they don't have this sort of play at home.

I would have enjoyed that! Sounds great - I like the idea of putting recipes out
