Home Learning

During the period of school closure please refer to this page for all learning activities that can be carried out at home. 

We also appreciate that keeping children engaged in their learning whilst at home is not going to be easy and so we have gathered perfectly matched content for your child that can be completed both independently or with adult support.

A letter, dated 19th March 2020, was sent to all parents informing of what to expect during the closure. All children will be contacted by a member of staff to discuss work completed at home and for well-being check ins.

Competition: Design new school

Foundation Stage

Learning through play is a key element of your child's development. Focus on:

  • reading and talking about books to develop their early reading skills
  • count objects, pictures and practise simple word problems using items from around the house
  • write letters, words and numbers, encouraging your child to hold writing equipment correctly
  • use scissors and other handheld tools to develop fine motor skills
  • be active - let your child explore the outdoors 


Year 1

Your child can be supported at home in ways that encourage a love of learning. Reading at home with your child and spelling out words, decoding them together, is a beneficial way of supporting your child's learning. Try to pick stories that centre on their interests to keep it fun. 

Check the front and back of the reading book from school as there are often suggested activities for your child to do. 

  • practise reading words from the 2019 phonics screening check.
  • practise handwriting at home, keeping letters neatly sitting on the line. 
  • count in 1s, 2s, 5s, 10s and 3s. 
  • count objects, pictures and then record in equations.

Year 2

Please follow the links below for further home learning. The Home Learning links will take you directly to tasks within the Twinkl website. These tasks can be shared with your child and completed in their home learning book.

Please support your child to read and write the first 100 high frequency words and common exception words for their year group.
