Month Two

This month Bertie and his friends are continuing their journey, you and your children can relax with the Mini Yo! Mindfulness film and develop their Hopping, Throwing and Catching Skills.

We will be focussing on the foundation of Co-ordination and do more activities that help develop other areas of learning.

We are so pleased you are continuing this exciting journey with us and hope you have a great month ahead.

Month One

Bertie’s Big Adventure

Bertie’s Adventure continues form last month.

Below are the Storyboards that you can double click on and they will expand allowing you or your child to read the story.

You can also download colouring in pictures for your child to colour in or give them paper and crayons to create their own drawings.

Mini Yo! Mindfulness

We all need time away from being busy, stresses of life, irrespective of how old we are and just enjoy some calm in the moment. You can now use our mindfulness films to help your children to relax, and relax yourself. All postures are based on the Mini Yo! moves but are kept simple and slow so your children can concentrate on just being and relaxing.

This month’s Mindfulness film includes the following moves:

Butterfly – Rock – Cat

Try this month’s film to relax:

Mini Yo! Mindfulness

You can also learn the moves and demonstrate them without the film.

Or do the moves faster for a higher energy activity!

Mini Moves

This month’s Skills are:

Hop – Throw – Catch

Children in the early years need to learn and have the opportunity to develop some basic physical skills. This section will help them to develop the skills.

Introduce your child to each move individually to give them a chance to try them and to develop.

Children can follow these films of the moves:

Hopping Throwing and Catching

Combine two or all three moves to create new activities

Here is an Active Story to get you started:

Cat, Kangaroo & Penguin

Can you create your own Active Story?

Add the skills to activities you already do to give children more opportunity to develop them.

If you can, print off the attached flashcards to use during activities or give them to your children to try them when they like. This will also help with their language acquisition.

If you have the Mini Moves Cards, you can use them too.

Learning Through Movement and Play

When children in the early years are moving and playing they will be developing holistically and learning.

Month Two focusses on Mathematics and Numeracy through movement and play. Have a look at the diagram below.

Here are some activities that can easily be done at home:

Counting Animals

Great to help children learn about numbers while moving and enjoying.

Row Row your Boat

Great for language acquisition.


Continue helping children to learning the alphabet:

Active Alphabet

This old faithful is a great, fine motor, mathematics, language and physical activity:

Paper Fortune Teller

(These activities cover Language, Literacy and Communication, Mathematics/Numeracy, PSED Health and Wellbeing and Cultural Diversity, Expressive Arts and Design Creative Development, Knowledge of and Understanding the World and includes the Mini Moves Skills.)

When children are being active they will naturally develop:


Agility – Balance – Coordination – Spatial Awareness

This month is all about Co-ordination. Here is an activity you could try to help develop co-ordination
