School Readiness: Teacher Resources
Funded by Innovate UK
'Get Ready Embers!' is a suite of lessons and activities designed to embed key principles for children to thrive within a classroom environment all based on an episode of Embers the Dragon showing what happened on his first day of school
To understand the background to the theory behind the resources and how to use them, please watch the introduction video featuring our Clincial Lead, Emma. The learning has been divided into three sessions, each with associated follow up interventions for small group or one to one work picking up on core school readiness themes.
For each session, you'll find an editable powerpoint that links to the planning, downloadable worksheets and resources and also video clips from the episode you can show to re-enforce particular learning points.
