This activity will help give your child's confidence a boost at a time when children can often feel a bit nervous or anxious. It will also help with their literacy and fine motor skills as they put pen to paper and practise writing their name and filling in the information pages.

How to extend the magic

Starting school is a big milestone in your child's life. Why not cuddle up and watch a story about starting school. It's called 'Jack's Big Day' and you can find it by clicking through to the Story Time area of the website and browsing the section called Everyday Life.
