A NEW, ten-issue digital magazine is launching next month, April, aiming to help children prepare for school.
Using storytelling and character-led material, and developmental activities, the magazine promises to give families loads of fun learning and sharing together.
With content that is designed specifically to build strong foundations for starting school, the engaging characters also teach children about building learning resilience through working on a ‘Growth Mindset’.
The magazine’s founder also hopes that the structure and activities will support families concerned about the impact Covid19 has had on younger learners, both preparing for primary and those who may have recently started at school.
Creator of the ‘Get Set Yeti’ universe, Carol Arnott, is a seasoned educator who champions the importance of parents as ‘their children’s first educators’.
Says Carol: “We want to give parents and carers the material to enable them to do the little things at home that have a big impact on their children’s readiness to start learning at school with confidence.”
A parent, experiencing Get Set Yeti’s material, adds:“This has all been fun and will go a long way to help and support my child while he’s learning. We really enjoyed everything we made and my child loved the fact that Mummy made them with him.”
Yet another comments: “I feel the material made things that I would like to achieve more enjoyable, as I’m more confident in what I’m doing with my son.”
‘Get Set Yeti’ magazine will be launching mid-April, full of comic strips, stories, songs, puzzles and printables.
At only £4.99 an issue, check out the ROARSOME yetis at www.getsetyeti.com/magazine.
Notes for editors:
Get Set Yeti Ltd is a digital educational programme and resource provider that supports schools, nurseries and communities to teach resilience and build learning confidence through the development of a Growth Mindset.
The organisation also provides training and resources for educators, to help support parents understand their importance as their childrens’ ‘first educators’ and provide them with the resources to do the small things at home that have a big impact in building the foundations for school in early literacy and early numeracy.
Get Set Yeti is passionate about giving children the right tools from the start of learning, to be able to understand that if they can’t do something straight away, it just means they can’t get there YET… but will if they keep on trying.
Get Set Yetis wants children to learn, not to be put off by mistakes and to enjoy being challenged – giving them the capacity to close the attainment gap and missing learning which has been exacerbated for many through pandemic-related issues. Every child should be given the gift of learning confidence and belief in their ability to succeed through determination and keeping trying.
