As some of our families begin to self-isolate we are providing home learning packs which can be downloaded through our class pages.
For those in self-isolation: Home learning ideas for Year R
If you are unable to access the internet at home then please let the office know and we will print and send home a learning pack for you.
Please note: the most effective work you can be doing with your child are the things that they should already be doing as often as possible.
- Reading and recording reading/tasks in their home school book 4 x per week.
- Completing and recording a maths activity in their home school diary 4 x per week.
- Practising their phonics by watching phonic Youtube videos listed below.
- Exploring the world around them; introduce them to new terminology and promote good language skills.

To help your child at home you can:
- Count with your child to 100.
- Ask them which number comes after another: What's one more than 17?
- Include maths into your daily routines: I have 5 oranges and 3 apples. How many do I have altogether?
- Help your child to begin forming the numbers.
- Recognise and name shapes in your home. Show your child how to describe the shapes: It has four corners and four sides.
- Sing counting songs.
- Practice your child's key words with them.
- Listen to your child read their book and record your experiences in the home learning diary.
- Read stories together and talk about the characters, setting and plot.
- Sing nursery rhymes and play rhyming games.
- Help your child to form the letters and ask them which sounds the letters make.
