Home Learning for children who are not attending school

Please find below home learning that has been set. We do not recommend that you follow our daily timetable, rather find the best way to build your child's learning into a routine that works for you and allows you time to work with any other children you have and also work from home. It is important to allow your child plenty of time for learning through play. We understand that this is a difficult time for you as parents so please do not feel that you need to complete all the activities but as a minimum please try to do the phonics, the sentence writing, magic maths and explorers. Keep sharing books with your child. 


A member of the Yr R staff will be available via Tapestry each school day to answer any questions about the learning. 


This will be set on a weekly basis (the format will change from next week to include physical and wellbeing activities) and we encourage you to post on Tapestry so we can see how your child is getting on.



Home learning for Week beginning 18-1-21

Hello YR

well done for completing another week of home learning. We are loving seeing all the super learning you are doing. We have lots more exciting learning planned for this week and we will be thinking about the story of the 3 little pigs; do you know that story?


Parents, just a reminder that we need to see what your children have been learning at home so ask that you try to post this on Tapestry once a day or at the very least a summary of all learning once a week.

We love seeing what you have been doing and appreciate how hard you have been working to support your children in their learning.


If we can support you in any way with home learning or you have any queries do contact us and we will do our best to help.

Good luck with this week's learning.

Want to try something a little bit different. Have a go at a yoga session designed specifically for children.

Tricky words

Tricky words are the words that you can not 'sound out' in English. These words need to be memorised as a whole word.

The children will bring home tricky word Bingo games in a zippy wallet in their book bags. Please follow the instructions provided inside the zippy wallet. We encourage you to practise these regularly at home to support your child's progress. 

Please find below some extra sets of  the Bingo words and games you can play to support your child's recall of the tricky words.

Reading material

You can register with Oxford Owl for free to access books for your child. Select your child's age and book band. We suggest you try the Pink book band to start with.
Phonics Play comics allow you to select specific sounds you would like your child to practise reading in a fun context.
