Home Learning Resources and Ideas

On this page we aim to signpost you to websites that can support your child’s learning journey as it continues at home. We will also be sending home packs of activities for the children to complete.


Little and often remains the key. During the day the children are used to lots of free ‘play’ time – we call it ‘choosing for learning’ Small world play, construction, singing, dancing, play dough, cooking, playing board games, chatting, drawing, making activities and being physically active


Daily activities


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. Foundation Stage (FS) children should use the phase 2 and 3 section. Year 1 children should use the phase 5 section.

Writing – Encourage your child to draw/stick in a picture and write a sentence (or more!) in their book.  They are working hard to leave finger spaces between their words and using their phonic knowledge to write independently. Year 1s should aim for 4 or 5 sentences. The Year 1s have been doing lots of work on using interesting vocabulary and are working hard to remember capital letters and full stops. The children have sound mats and tricky word cards that they can use to support their writing.

Reading  – This could be books, comics, recipes etc. Practice reading common exception words and the tricky words in your child’s phonics folder. 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. In addition we have sent home some practical maths ideas for the FS children and some addition and subtraction practice sheets for the Year 1s.

At school we follow the Whiterose maths scheme for our planning. They have created a parents/carers page with 5 lessons per year group (more will be added so keep checking.) Each lesson has a video explaining the concept being worked on as well as activities for the children. It is well worth a look.

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