There are more structured daily tasks on here to keep your children learning whilst they are at home. The daily activities can be found below and are intended to be done in short bursts of 15-20 mins. In school we do short activities and then physical breaks as the children cannot concentrate for long periods of time. Please do not do a whole day of maths, writing or phonics, mix up the different activities as this is what the children are used to in school. Most of all make the learning fun and enjoyable, learning should be very practical and engaging at this age!

If you are unable to complete the tasks for any reason please just let us know, please don't worry if you cannot complete all the tasks.

Don't forget to upload completed tasks onto your child's Class Dojo account. We have set the account so you can upload just a photograph.

Thank you for your support.

Reading ideas

  • Log onto Oxford Owls – you will need to create a Parent account.
  • There are lots of books on there that the children have not read but please ensure you check the stage of book & only read the books from the stage your child is at. They may read books from a previous stage but if you go above that stage they may not have the phonic skills to be able to decode & read the books.
  • Please choose 2 books for this week to read as we would do in school.
  •  We would suggest that you begin reading from the Stage 1.
  • None of the children should be reading books above Stage 1+.




Writing tasks.

Top tips for writing with your child..

  • Draw lines to help your child focus their writing and letter formation.
  • Encourage correct pencil grip.
  • Ask your child what they want to write. You repeat it back to them and then both say it again.
  • Allow your child to sound out for themselves & only support them to sound out if they need encouragement. We would not expect the children to be using “ea” for read, it would be written reed. Day would be dai, fly would be fligh.
  • Don’t worry if they miss some of the middle sounds, developmentally children will hear the initial and final sounds before they hear the middle sounds.
  • Keep repeating the sentence back to your child to help them remember what to write next.
  • Encourage your child to read back what they have written so far so they can keep track of where they are up to.
  • Give them lots of praise & encouragement.



Phonics practise.

  • Use your child’s phonics homework book & check which sounds they have learnt so far.
  • Practise writing those sounds and write a simple 3  letter word to go with that sound            eg s- sit, b - bat, m - mum
  • Practise reading & writing Tricky words – Phase 2 words - I, no, go, to, the & into.
  • They must be able to read the tricky words by themselves & begin to write them too.

Please encourage them to think about online safety rules as they learn and lots of these links can be found on our school website.
