What your child learns at home is very important to us in school. We would like you to extend what they have been learning in school to the home environment to cement their new knowledge.
To help with this we will upload resources for you on this page. This will range from the books we are reading, simple recipes that you can cook at home with your child, simple activities that you can do and songs that you can sing.
Ideas for Home Learning with your child 24.3.2020
Each day we will post some ideas for activities that you can do with your child at home to support the Early Years Foundation Stage.
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Cook together at home. We have simple recipes that you can make with your children at home. Pitta pizza, pancakes, stir fry. Spend time talking about the ingredients and healthy eating.
Communication and Language
Story Telling. Children enjoy nothing more than snuggling up with a book. Make it a time for you to be together. Choose a familiar book and ask them how it might end and about the characters.
Treasure Hunt. Design a simple treasure hunt around the house and garden. Give the children a list of easily found items and see how many they can bring you. Make sure there is a prize at the end!
What's in the bag? Put an object into a small bag and give clues to what might be inside. Take it in turns and see who gets the most items right.
Sorting Anything can be sorted! Socks, coins, toys. You can sort by size, shape or colour. Using language to describe the items as you sort them - big, bigger, biggest, small, smaller, smallest, etc.
Understanding the World
Weather chart. Take a few minutes each day to observe the weather and plot on a chart. A simply drawn calendar of days that you can write or draw the weather on each day.
Expressive Arts and Design
Dance It's free! Turn the music up and just let go.
