Happy and secure as we all learn together

Mums and Chums started sometime after ‘Dads and Lads’, responding to our Mums request to get involved!  So we now run successful sessions for Mums and girls.  Similarly to Dads and Lads, the focus is on developing Literacy Skills.  Our young learners are encouraged to work alongside female adults, including; Mums, big sisters, Nanas and Aunties.


The sessions are coordinated in the following way:

  • Autumn Term: Year 2
  • Spring Term: Year 1
  • Summer Term: Nursery and Reception


During these sessions the 'Mums and Chums' take part in a variety of activities including,

  • Factual Writing - Remembering and recording fire safety rules
  • Reading Comprehension activities - ‘Who am I?’ riddles
  • PoetryUsing natural art to stimulate ideas for poems
  • Den building
  • Fire lighting
  • Creative activities
  • And lots more!!


If you would like to attend any of these upcoming events then keep your eyes open on our weekly newsletters and also our Twitter page for the dates. The spaces are allocated on a first come first serve basis so make sure you don't miss out! We look forward to seeing you!
