Would you like Fred to visit you for #fredsadventurestories?
Fred is on a mission to visit early years settings and primary schools for outdoor adventures across the UK.
This high-quality UK grown wooden figure is the perfect resource to support children’s learning and development through outdoor play.
Fred can promote speech and written language development, problem solving, emotional security and empathy as children engage in imaginative outdoor play and storytelling together.
Take a look at #fredsadventurestories on Instagram and, if you would like to receive your own Fred to inspire the children at your setting, just email firstname.lastname@example.org. Use the subject line ‘Fred to stay’ and include your name and postal address in the message, so that Fred can find his way to you for free.
As Fred says, “Small things can make a BIG difference!”
Natalia Kosmirak, Temple Learning Academy EYFS lead, says:
“Fred is cross curricula and meets requirements in the statutory framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage.
“Fred’s adventures heavily link with the personal, social and emotional aspect of the EYFS, as well as promoting in-depth communication and language and expanding a child’s critical thinking through exploration of their natural world.”
