Pod tips by Miss Mooney and her Easy Peas

Play

Jessica Mooney-Reception Teacher at St James’ Church of England Primary School — I have been the reception teacher at St James’ School for 5 years and I love being part of an early years team that believes in the power of play-based learning. I have always been a firm believer that carefully planned play experiences underpin children’s learning and development, this is why I was so excited to learn about Easy Peasy!

As a school, we were delighted to be part of the SHINE project and after learning about the home learning intervention I was looking forward to launching Easy Peasy across our early years setting. Since its launch I have had the pleasure of reading a number of positive comments from the parents about their child’s home learning experiences. The games have been a huge success and they have been met with smiles and enthusiasm by all the children.

One ardent Easy Pea summed up the attitude of all our learners perfectly when he said:

“I want to play those fun games all of the time! I want to play those fun games all of the time!”

5 tips you might find helpful

  • Get parents excited! Spread the word by putting up posters, hosting an Easy Peasy meeting and sending out information letters.

  • Get the children involved! Get the children excited about their new home learning by introducing some of the ‘Starter Games’ and including them in some of the publicity materials for parents.

  • Encourage parents to share tips! The children love hearing words of encouragement and positive feedback (I have found it encourages the children to challenge themselves).

  • Share their learning! Parents enjoy seeing their little ones participating in the games with their friends.

  • Why not incorporate the games in other areas of learning?! We have found a lot of the Easy Peasy games promote team work and have included these in our PSHE learning.

Thank you to Miss Mooney and her Easy-Peas for sharing their experiences!
