Early Years Home Learning


Here are some useful ideas for supporting your children if they are in Nursery...

During our class closure, we have put together some resources to support your child in learning from home.

Lots of activities and story times will be uploaded to Tapestry – log in to your child’s Tapestry account using the email you provided during admissions. If you have not registered your account, don’t forget to check your email inbox and junk folder for an email from ‘Tapestry’.

If you are having difficulties logging in, please have a look at some handy videos by following this link: https://eyfs.info/forums/topic/47795-tutorials-contents-page-for-relatives/

I will be taking a daily register on Tapestry on Session 1’s video between 9.00-9.30. (More information available on Tapestry). I will then be adding different challenges and activities each day and marking your work. I look forward to seeing everything you get up to and I am here to support in any way I can!

Mrs Green will also be taking part in our challenges! Keep a look out for Mrs Green’s work and see if you can complete your challenges too.

 You could also have a go at playing some listening games with your child at home…

I SPY: “What can you see starting with the sound ssssssss?”

           “Something that is green”

          “Something we wear”

What sounds can you hear?:  Encourage your child to listen to sounds around the home, are they loud or quiet?

Can you hear some sounds from your open window/ from your garden?

Sound shakers: Can you fill empty containers- like bottles- with household items?

You could put a little sugar in one, perhaps some small toys in another, a tissue in another.

Do they sound different?

Can you order them from loudest to the quietest?

Can you hide the bottle so another family member can guess what is inside? 

On the left are some links to pages you can use at home:

·        Phonics Play: (Click on the free resources on Phase 1 phonics for some important listening and attention games. https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/resources/phase/1 )

·        Number Blocks: Have a look at the videos at the bottom of the page (‘The 1 song’ , ‘The 2 song’ etc  https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/watch/numberblocks-the-one-song )

Stay safe and I look forward to seeing you on Tapestry!

Here are some useful ideas for supporting your children if they are in Reception...

Whilst at home there are many things you can be doing to support your child’s learning.


Reading is still on the top of our agenda and we still follow our school motto, 'If you can read, you can do anything.' 


This link will let you access free books online to support your child with their reading. They will be able to use their phonic knowledge to sound the word out (segment) and put it back together to read (blend). 

Reading each day with your child will enhance their vocabulary and their understanding. There are many free books available online to read with your child- I have attached some links for you to browse.





Watching Alphablocks will encourage your child with their letter recognition and blending.


Read Write Inc have put some information to support you whilst you are at home. I have attached the link for you to browse the activities.



Around the house you could use objects to hide and use different positional language e.g. the car is under the chair, the shoes are next to the door.

Using items around the house to count or solve problems e.g. I need 4 forks for us all to eat, but I only have 3. How many more do I need?

Watching Numberblocks will help your child with their Maths.



Encourage your child to write either simple words or simple sentences using their phonics.

Can they write about what they have done during the day?

Encourage the correct formation of letters and holding a pencil to make marks.

Can they begin to write or think of their own story?

Other activities:

Board games are a great way to promote language, Maths and turn taking.

Playing cards e.g. ‘snap’ or ‘go fish.’

Drawing- drawing with Rob on Youtube is a great channel.


There will be daily challenges on tapestry to complete and more information will be sent out about live zoom lessons.

Thank you for your continued support. Please upload anything you complete on to tapestry for me to have a look. I cannot wait to see them all.
