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
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.
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.
Additional resources and ideas
Starting on Monday 23rd, Joe Wicks will be doing a live 30 mins workout session everyday at 9am aimed at children on his YouTube channel
We know that is an uncertain time for all of us, and as always we appreciate your continued support and understanding.
With very best wishes,
