Editor of Nursery Education PLUS, Tracey, introduces our ‘Sky high’ themed activities and offers more ideas for exploring the topic with your children:
‘Take off with these wonderful activities that will bring a magical touch into your setting. Why not extend the fantasy element by creating an enchanted fairy tale land or little witches’ and wizards’ school? There are so many opportunities to encourage children to develop their own imaginative stories or create fantastic spells. Where will their magic carpet take them once they have designed it? Venture into the mythical world with Pegasus and our online-only ‘Pegasus talk about cards’. Gallop and fly around your outdoor spaces!’
