Home Learning

Home learning

If your family is in isolation, waiting for a test, or the class bubble has been closed and your child is well, please follow the guidance below to ensure your child does not miss out on the learning or fall behind his/her class mates.  Please ensure you work one to one with your child using the links below.


There is a daily online Maths lesson from White Rose home learning- this follows the same plan as our class learning.

There is a daily online Literacy lesson from Oak academy home learning- this is slightly different to our class learning, but follows similar objectives.

Other Areas of Learning will be covered in the 'Resources' link- hopefully this should provide you with ideas to do with your child related to Understanding the world, Art and design and Physical Development.  Oak academy home learning also provides weekly ideas for these areas of learning that you could use if you would like a more guided approach.


I have not attached a timetable as children of this age are more fluid in their approach to learning and much is learned through play.  However, I would recommend that you structure a daily Maths and Literacy lesson into your home timetable, at the same time each day if possible, of about 15-20 mins per subject,  to encourage a sense of routine.  Another recommendation is a daily story time, where you and your children can share a story book, un-rushed, talk about it and enjoy it together.  There is also online "Bug club" to log into (see SeeSaw for your login code) that will allow your child to continue with their home reading practice too.



Scroll down the web page to older dates, as some of the current lessons start on lesson 6 (half way through a unit)  rather than lesson 1!  Your child may find some lessons easier than others, as there are varied ability and skill levels being presented, but most children will need an adult on hand at home to help and support the learning.  



As these are weekly lessons that we do in class as well, please follow the order below;

4.1.21  Introducing 0

11.1.21 Comparting Numbers to 5

18.1.21 Composition of 5

25.1.21 Making Pairs with 6,7 and 8

Daily phonics sessions

We have started to follow the "Song of Sounds" phase 2 learning in the classroom.  We take part in a daily teaching session, of about 15 minutes, that includes learning a letter sound, practicing the song & actions associated with that sound, matching pictures that start with that initial sound and reading simple 3 letter words that begin with the sound. We also encourage the children to take part in a practical practice task in the classroom too-a minimum time of at least 10 minutes!! You can find more information about Song of sounds and the letter order, by following the link on the Seesaw app, under the class announcements section.

Teaching order of sounds (weekly);

A daily phonics session for you to do with your child can be found on YouTube; Learn Phase 2 phonics with Maddison & Felix.
