Suggested Ideas For Completing EYFS Home Learning Activities

 

Dear Parents,

In response to lots of your concerns about completing learning activities at home during this difficult time, we have tried to put together a plan to help you. Some of you may be able to complete all of our suggested activities and some not so many. Please remember that this is not compulsory and we appreciate whatever you are able to manage. So many of you have been using Seesaw regularly and we have thoroughly enjoyed your posts. Please keep using this as responding and communicating directly with the children is important. We have also been amazed at all of the new skills the children have been learning - gardening, cooking, experimenting, dancing and so much more. These are just as valuable as the activities we’ve posted. Finding the time to give your child your undivided attention is invaluable so, if you do nothing else, please try and find the time each day to sit and share a story together. Talking about the story, re-telling the story and being immersed in language in this way is extremely important for your child’s development, it’s also a fun and enjoyable way to spend time together.

We hope all of you and your families are staying healthy and safe,

Many thanks the EYFS Team

Please find below some links to excellent online resources to support learning at home. These include games, stories, activities and printable resources.
Various educational websites such as Twinkl, TES and Classroom Secrets are offering free resources, that you would normally have to pay for. Please check these out. 
Please use the below PowerPoint presentations to help your child visually grasp the concepts of doubling, halving and number bonds to 10. These are topics which are due to be covered at school in the next few weeks. 
Below are the Phase 2 and 3 tricky words that the children have already been learning to read and spell. In the next couple of week, we are due to be teaching the children the Phase 4 tricky words (also below). Please help your child to recognise these words by sight and then spell them.
