Home Learning Daily Activities & Resources

Phonics – Please encourage your child to access the website ‘Phonics Play.’ Here you will find lots of games and activities that will support and consolidate your child’s current learning. Year 1 children should use the phase 5 section. We especially love ‘Reading Robot’ as it helps us to read nonsense and real word (they are fantastic at this!). We sometimes like to play hangman with simple words and make up our own alien words.
Writing – Encourage your child to draw/stick in a picture and write in their book.  Beech Class have been doing lots of work on using interesting vocabulary and are working hard to remember capital letters and full stops. They are also working really hard on their handwriting.

Reading  – This could be books, comics, recipes etc. It is really important that the children discuss what they have read, ask them questions, encourage them to ask questions, talk about what has happened already and what might happen next. Reading to your child is just as important.


Big Cat Collins have a login for parents where you can read leveled ebooks. These are books that the children use in school

Maths – There is so much opportunity for maths in real life – cooking is a great way of developing maths skills. Telling the time is another great maths skill to practice at home. Children can also be practicing their times tables, in particular 2, 5 and 10. In addition we have sent home some fractions work sheets for Year 2 some addition and subtraction practice sheets for the Year 1s.


The following websites/links have lots of maths games and ideas
