Support for the under 5's

We can run a 1 – 2 hour session which starts with the reading of “Stay Safe with Thomas the Tank Engine” book.  The children rotate around the next three activities: colouring in train pictures; role play with a ticket office (buying tickets with pretend money) and making and decorating a model train.  Children will learn about the ‘yellow line’ and why it’s important.  We will also have picture of our different staff and will talk about their roles.
