Here is a programme of suggested home learning activities if you are isolating at home or should school be closed due to current restrictions. There are weekly activity sheets that cover the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. There will also be stand-alone activities on both our website and Seesaw for children to access.
To support your child’s ongoing learning we would recommend that you complete the following activities daily.
1, Reading: Login to Oxford Reading Buddy, even if your child is not blending. Your child needs to read at least one book per day. Do not forget the importance of accessing picture books as these are equally important to develop their skills. Please aim to complete the comprehension quizzes at the end of the story. Any wider reading from favourite books is always encouraged and can be shown on the Buddy system with any comments you may have.
2, Spelling and Phonics: We are currently focusing on recalling and writing phonics and introducing Ruth Miskin red words – known as tricky words. These are sight words that need to be learnt to aid and progress their reading and writing. These can be accessed here on the school website. Focus initially on the first 6 starting with “I” and ending with “was”. Once secure by sight please feel free to learn others on the list. Play games with these or hide them around your home to try and make this learning more fun.
3, Number: We have created simple Maths Challenges which can be found on the Home Learning section of our website. These encourage the children to use and practise their number skills. Please choose one each day and develop / extend as appropriate for your child.
Any completed work can be uploaded to SEESAW. Do as much as you are able and work at a pace that suits your family life at this time. Our priority is for you and your family to keep safe.
Please do email us using the class email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like any support or would like to give us feedback. We will be accessing this regularly and will respond as soon as we are able.
