Home Learning

Each week we will continue to provide work for your child to complete at home during the school closure. You will find a suggested timetable under the section Year 1. Your child does not need to complete all of the activities each day,  however they are suggestions that you can do each week and on different days to help them manage their time at home.  Although this is an unsettling time for everyone, it is also a unique opportunity to spend time together and for your children to learn other skills that they may not have had time for. Below are some ideas that you could do with your child whilst at home:

  • Learning to tie their shoelaces
  • Polishing their shoes
  • Learning to put on their tie or do up their buttons
  • Sorting out their clothes in a drawer or wardrobe
  • Making simple sandwiches for lunch
  • Making a vegetable soup together or fruit salad
  • Baking cakes
  • Writing a shopping list
  • Setting the table for dinner or helping to wash and dry the dishes
  • Looking through old photos
  • Learning a song by heart
  • Helping to tidy up an area of the house each day, for example a cupboard
  • Learning a board game or completing a difficult puzzle
  • Keeping a diary
  • Learning a new word each day and using it in conversations
  • Learning a new language
  • Doing 30 minutes exercise each day - see Joe Wicks on Youtube
  • Listening to mindfulness exercises for children - see Youtube
  • Learning their address or your telephone number
  • Write a letter and post it to a family member or friend
  • Helping to tidy the garden or caring for indoor plants
  • Taking it in turns to read each page in a picture book and asking each other questions
  • Make play dough or create an object from paper mache
  • Make paper aeroplanes
  • Look at Google Earth
  • Check out some of the Science activities under the section British Science Week
  • Learn about a different animal each day using books or the Internet or asking questions
  • Draw their family tree
  • Look at a map of the world or the UK or London and talk about it
