We are now starting our Easter holidays, although this will be different from our normal holidays I encourage you to take these two weeks to relax and enjoy your time together as a family. I've attached some Easter activities below for you give a go over this time. I will still be available via email and would love to stay in touch so please keep sending me updates, pictures and videos!
Please use this page to find daily phonics and maths activities, weekly topic activities as well as websites you may find useful to support your child at home.
I would recommend following a timetable at home as children feel safe with routine and rules, particularly in this time of uncertainty. Below I have attached an example timetable which may help.
During this time I would encourage you to follow your child's interests as much as possible, this will help keep things easy for you and help keep them engaged! Please do not feel you need to fit in everything on this page, I understand that this will not be possible- use this mainly as a guide.
For example, if your child loves dinosaurs, you can research dinosaurs, create fossils with salt-dough, go on dinosaur hunts etc. If you would like to help with this then email me over some of your child's interests and I can put together some activities focused on that interest for you to do at home. Let's keep learning fun!
My email is firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be available to contact between 9am-3pm every weekday. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with any questions or queries you may have!
Stay safe everyone,
Use this time at home to work on the children's creative skills. This is a great way to keep children calm and engaged. Attached below is a booklet of ideas to help inspire you. Hobbycraft have created a craft club, join them daily at 11 am on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for crafting challenges! https://www.hobbycraft.co.uk/ideas/kids/kids-craft-club
White rose hub have created at home learning videos, work and mark schemes that can be accessed via their website.
There are daily lessons on here for Y1. There are suggested pratical activities for EYFS.
We follow these scheme within school so children should be familiar with the vocabulary and layout used.
The Maths Factor are offering a months free subscription to their platform. They offer daily challenges that can be accessed via a laptop, computer, tablet or phone. I'd recommend using this site as it links to our national curriculum and is also fun and engaging.
I recommend that Year 1 children also do frequent arithmetic work- to help them stay fluent with their maths. I will upload some arithmetic questions daily, that should take around 10-20 minutes.
For EYFS children I have attached a booklet below to work on numbers 0-10.
I cannot recommend Numberblocks on CBBC enough for both Reception and Year 1 (you can also find these on YouTube). We often watch these in class and they are great at teaching the children maths whilst also keeping them entertained!
Please find attached below some maths Easter challenges for this weeks maths. These challenges are suitable for Year 1 and EYFS, however Reception children will need more support with these.
For Reception children I have uploaded, below, a booklet of at maths at home learning ideas.
Any questions or queries please email me.
Below are some ideas of science experiments that you can carry out at home.
Please find below a booklet which contains writing ideas for your child to do at home.
Topic - Famous for more than five minutes
Study people who have made significant contributions both nationally and internationally. Learn about their achievements and try some projects in their areas of expertise such as art, music, leadership, science, mathematics and invention. Be inspired by these role models to dream of what you might achieve in the future. Choose famous people from Tudor, Renaissance, Victorian or Modern times. Each block will allow you to explore one or two changes in aspects of everyday life.
