Mid Mouse 

What is Mid mouse?
Mid mouse is an authority wide, community based transition project which will help to support your child as they move from their home & early learning & childcare setting into school. Each child will be gifted a mouse which can be used as an object to support and share their journey. Every school and early learning and childcare setting will also have a mouse, similar to your child’s. Mid mouse will be a part of this special time of change for your child and can be with them every step of the way.

Transitions Story Week 1: There’s a Bear on my Chair by Ross Collins

Transitions Story Week 2: Bloom by Anne Owen

Transitions Principle of the Week: Expectations: Families, communities, sense of belonging
This story is about feelings, positive thinking and empathy. It emphasises the power of kindness and celebrates the beauty of nature and the importance of nurturing things we love.

Mid Mouse Week 3 – 26th May 2021

Transitions Story Week 3: The Worrysaurus by Rachel Bright

Transitions Principle of the Week: Opportunities
The story helps children to explore their own emotions and recognise these. It supports them to think positively about unknown situations and gives them ideas of how to feel better if they are feeling worried about something. It also lets children know that often things aren’t as bad as they may seem.
