Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, regrettably we are unable to invite parents into school for a tour of Berkswich CE primary and nursery. We understand that choosing the right setting for your child is one of the most important decisions that you will make in your child’s learning journey. With this in mind, we hope to provide you with a range of opportunities to allow you to gain an insight into life as part of our special Berkswich community and the chance to ask questions. We certainly welcome the opportunity to support and reassure you as you organise your child’s first steps into Nursery and Reception. We are offering virtual meetings to provide an opportunity for new parents to meet our headteacher, EYFS leader and teaching staff. This will provide a great opportunity for you to ask questions and find out about our community and learning at Berkswich CE. Your child is a vital part of this process, and so we welcome them to join in with the meeting.

Arts, Design and Crafts



Being creative is an excellent way to keep ourselves busy and stimulate our minds. Have a look at the list to see if there is anything that you could have a go at…


  • Join author Rob Bidulph to learn how to draw characters online: biddulph
  • Make a home-made bird feeder and watch them come flocking!
  • Lots of us have mindfulness colouring books; now is the time to dust them off with some relaxing colouring…
  • Hold a paper aeroplane competition. Compare different designs and see how well they fly and land
  • Make a set of bookmarks to encourage reading.
  • Use insulating or masking tape to create a road map on your floor. Drive toy cars around your imaginary town and use other toys as landmarks and local characters.
  • Create an artistic collage – cut out from magazines and catalogues, use stickers and paint to bring it to life. If you have an empty picture frame it can go on the wall.
  • Raid the garden for decent sized stones and do some rock paintings.
  • Ask your parent/carer if you have an old white t-shirt and fabric dye to create a tie-dye masterpiece.
  • Turn odd socks into sock puppets:
  • Any old tins? Ask an adult to help you to clean them out and make your own desk organiser or indoor plant pot.
  • Ask an adult to visit Pinterest for you for the best crafts ideas from making bowls and dreamcatchers to fire-breathing dragons and fairy houses.
