Please find below activities for your child to complete this term if they are working from home. Please do not worry if you are unable to achieve all of them. We have tried to give a wide variety so you can choose what suits you and your child.


For any queries regarding these home learning activities, please email   Paula or Nicki will get back to you as soon as possible. Thanks

Home learning resources 

Please visit the Oxford reading tree website and choose an ebook to read to your child. We are working on Stage 1 Stage 1+ Stage 2 Stage 3 in class. Ask your child questions about what they have heard or what they can see.

Read these poems with your child. If they are able to learn any of the words and say them with you that would be good.


Set up a mini greengrocers using real fruit and vegetables or pictures. Give each item a price. Some children will be able to count out coins to the correct value to buy the items and work out change. Other children should make choices as to what they would like to buy. They can then practise exchanging money/card to gain the items.


Visit your garden or a local park for some fresh air. Make a list with your child of all the things you can see there. Take photographs if possible to remind them when you return home.

Use this visit to get them to dictate sentences or make choices of what they saw so that the adult records what they remember. Use a tablet/eye gaze/laptop to record.

Use the coloured symbols we have sent home to make some sentences about what you can do in the garden. Ask your child to choose the yellow word first, then a matching, orange, green and blue word. Then see if they can read what they have written.


 Look at a picture on the internet by Claude Monet, the water lilies. Let your child explore with blues and greens,either paint,felt tips,cornflour with food dye,coloured papers,whatever medium is right for them. Let them produce their own water scene in the style of the water lilies. If you have a printer they can produce the background and then add pre-printed water lily flowers on to it.


If you have the resources, help your child to explore soil and seeds before decorating a small plant pot and planting one. Cress/sunflower seeds are good. Talk about what the plant will need to grow.
