Whilst your children are not at school, it would be beneficial for them to continue their learning at home. Practising maths, phonics and reading daily will keep their learning fresh in their minds and help keep them occupied. Below are suggested activities or websites the children use at school and can continue to use at home.

Designing and making:

Junk modelling – make houses, cars, rockets, animals etc from old tubes and lids.

Draw flowers, leaves and foods they see around them.

Go for a nature walk and notice the natural things they see, smell, hear etc

Bake something tasty together.

Make playdough together.


Phonics and reading

Spot digraphs in their reading such as th, sh, ch ,ow, oa, ar, ai, ee etc.

Make lists of words that rhyme eg





Enjoy reading your books at home – even if you have read them before it will help their confidence to re-read well known books.

Use youtube for picture books to read out loud e.g. The very Hungry caterpillar (all the Eric Carle books are online). Read nursery rhymes together.


Counting carrots, snacks and posing problems eg ‘Ben has two carrots and Jo has three – how many altogether?’

Talk about the time of the day and sequencing the events in the day.

2D and 3D shape hunts in the environment
