At home learning Reception/Year 1 

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.

My email is 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,

Miss Bianchi

White rose hub has 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 practical activities for EYFS.  This is the scheme we follow within school therefore children are familiar with the vocabulary and layout. White Rose are no longer uploading the year 1 worksheet on their webpage, only the lesson. Each day I will upload the year 1 worksheet in the files below. 

Please also find a challenge booklet for Year 1 and Reception below.  


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!
