Please find below a link to the Facebook page referred to on the above website. Check out the videos for some lovely activities (albeit requiring some preparation and resources). Each activity is generally labelled as Phase 2, 3, etc. and/or ‘suitable for Reception, etc.’ which should help you find activities suitable for your child’s level.
