Welcome to our Home Learning page. Here you will find ideas and activities that you can enjoy and complete at home.
Please be assured that Miss Gossage and Miss Woods will remain in contact with you via Dojo with reminders and also new activities for the children to complete. If you have any questions or if the children would like to share their learning with us, you can do this via Dojo profiles. We would love to see what the children have been up to.
In Foundation we follow the Development Matters curriculum. We have attached a copy for parents to look at when they are helping their children at home. By the end of Foundation we aim for all children to meet the Early Learning Goals (ELG) in all areas of learning. In this document there are some ideas about how to support your child to reach these goals and how your environment can be changed to support learning.
Our Early Years curriculum
Our daily timetable
This is just a brief outline of the children’s normal day in school in case you wanted to mimic some of this at home to help keep the children in some routine.
9am – we usually do a 30 minute phonics session. You can do your phonics session by using the online video resources. Make sure you start with the correct video. Class teachers will dojo message you this.
9.30 – Free choice activities – this period of time is for the children to explore the environment and chose activities e.g painting, construction, outside, writing, stories.
11am – Writing/reading time. The children will have a go at writing sentences. First the teacher models writing a sentence e.g. The pig has pink skin. The children will help the teacher write a sentence together e.g. The cat has big feet. Finally the children will then have a go at writing their own sentence. Please remember to use the sentence superheroes and writing steps to success. Reading time can be reading to your child, reading together, or your child reading to you. Talk about new words they hear and discuss the story asking your child questions about the story and the characters feelings.
11.30 – 12.30: Lunchtime
12:45 - 30 minutes of maths activities. Don’t worry if you don’t have cubes etc at home for the children to count out – you can use anything!
1.15- Free choice activties – this period of time is for the children to explore the environment and chose activities e.g painting, construction, outside, writing, stories.
2.30 tidy up time
2.40 – story time/go noodle.
We hope this helps to structure some of your home learning. We have also made a child friendly version of this timetable as below. If you wish to make your own timetable we have also added the timetable image cards we use in school. These have a variety of activities on so you can change the structure of the day to match your plans.
Please do not hesitate to contact us on dojo if you need support! We will do all we can to support you during these unusual and difficult times.
