Physical development and mark making is a huge part of your child’s learning journey and is now a prime area of learning within the Early Years Foundation Stage Guidance for birth to 60 months.
Mark making is one of the outcomes of physical development. Exploring different textures, materials and grabbing various apparatus will help your child get ready for writing. Encouraging your child to use their hands, fingers, feet & toes to make marks will strengthen their core muscles and develop their gross & fine motor skills. These skills are vital for holding and controlling a pencil and for letter & number formation.
We run award-winning mark making classes, events and parties for under 5s in various locations across the North East and beyond! Click on your chosen venue below to see the classes and events that we have planned!
Our classes have been specially designed for your child to learn the basics of writing through play. Classes consist of messy play, dance, movement, paint, sand, play dough & more. Our classes often sell out so it is advisable to book. We run in 4 or 5 week terms and you can carry over any missed sessions to the next term if needed. Sometimes we offer drop in spaces where you can book and attend for 1 week as a trial.
Encourage your Little Learner to make their mark through messy play and find a class near you. Early booking is advised as our classes usually sell out! Full details of classes are on our website.

Naughty but nice Puddings!
Check out our delicious puddings, my favourite is the limoncello trifle, not suitable for the kids, but there are some other scrummy recipes that the whole family can enjoy! Take a look in our pudding section for recipes to make summer BBQ's and eating alfresco all the more tasty! My girls LOVE the chocolate pizza - making it, but mostly eating it!
Over the weekends and holidays there are always times when your children need some chill out time, or to fill an hour or so, or they say the dreaded 5 letter word - BORED! Well, our KidsZone is here to rescue you and them from these moments. Full of puzzles, colouring in sheets and activities from films and programmes there is lots to keep busy!
