Little Learners are so excited to be bringing our Mark Making sessions to the Tiny Tots area Gloworm Festival this year!
Little Learners is a multi award-winning messy play & mark making class created by a qualified teacher. Our educational sessions are full of messy play, paint, play dough, fine & gross motor activities, sand, sensory play, scribbling, singing and dance - all in a safe and fun environment!
At Gloworm Festival, our experienced Little Learners team will be on hand to help your child make marks and develop their early writing skills through play. We will take your child on a journey to meet our four Mark Maker characters - Lionel the soldier, Archie the rainbow, Swirlo the cauldron and Ziggy the monster! Ziggy will even be popping down to Gloworm to see you all...
What's the aim of Little Learners?
Little Learners is designed for babies, toddlers and preschoolers to learn to write through play. (Ages 5 months to 5 years) Its aim is to develop children's pre-writing motor skills, as well as their physical development (taking full account of EYFS guidance). A simple early writing programme is followed which involves learning four types of 'mark' that appear in letters, numbers, shape & pattern - these are taught through four fun characters! Physical development and mark making are vital skills to obtain in order for children to begin to grip objects, hold a pencil and eventually write. Little Learners classes help to prepare little ones for nursery and school by strengthening gross and fine motor skills, core strength and coordination.
