A new and exciting initiative is happening – our very own resource library.
This will be a borrowing scheme – designed to help families have access to new resources and support developing independent play.
Hobbies at Home resources have been divided into two categories: playing activities and academic activities (although of course they can be intertwined!). Resources include threading, alphabet beads, theraputy, train tracks, building blocks and marble runs.
How it will work:
-Families can look at the catalogue of resources and we can send out a paper copy too.
-Families can request to borrow a certain item by writing in the communication book, or by emailing
-If the resource is available, it will be sent home on the closest Friday to the request being made. If the resource if already being borrowed, you will be notified that your name is on the waiting list. You may then wish to borrow a different resource in the meantime
-Families will be able to borrow one resource at a time, for a maximum of two weeks. If you wish to re-borrow the same item, your child’s name will be added to the waiting list
-A home school agreement will be signed by families wishing to borrow resources to ensure that resources and equipment is used and cared for whilst within family homes
-When families show an interest in borrowing an item, but are unsure of what to choose, teachers can support in pointing in the right direction. The communication book is the best place to have these conversations. Families may wish teachers to direct them towards skills that are being worked on in the classroom
-Please provide any feedback to your class teacher or via the office – we are always striving to improve
