EYFS

Welcome to our year group's virtual page.
We hope with slight changes to the curriculum we will be able to accommodate online learning. We will provide a bank of tasks each week that you will be able to access and work through at home with independence. We hope that with your engagement and support we can provide your child with exciting learning opportunities.

  • How many different ways can you make 20? Can you spot any patterns?
  • Can you make some Easter biscuits? Use the scales to weigh the ingredients carefully.  Can you use the language heavy/heavier/heaviest/light/lighter/lightest to explain the different weights?  Send us a picture on Tapestry of your biscuits. https://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/easter_biscuits_37686

Other areas of learning

PE – everyday at 9am Joe Wicks ‘The Body Coach’ is delivering a 30 minute PE lesson. No equipment needed, just subscribe to the channel.

 

 

  • Understanding of the world – Go on a nature walk during your daily time outside. Think about what is happening to the trees.  What season are we in? What changes can you see?  Collect natural items on your walk.
  • Creative – Draw a picture of what you can see outside. Using the items you collected on your walk, make a spring picture.
  • Physical – Create an egg and spoon race. How far can you walk whilst balancing an egg (or another object) on a spoon?  Can you challenge your family members?
  • Physical – How many hops/jumps/star jumps can you do in 30 seconds? How many can you do in a minute? Repeat and see if you can beat your first score?  Who can do the most in your family?
  • Happiness – Take part in Cosmic Kids Yoga (Peter and Cotton Tail)

UPDATES FROM THE TEACHERS

We are all on a steep learning curve at the moment and we want to try and help parents and carers as much as we can. There is a lot of information out there about home learning, which is good in many ways, but can be overwhelming too. One of the best pieces of advice that we can give is to follow a timetable during the week. This needs to be very different from school as home learning is more of a one to one situation. Take a look at the examples posted here for ideas. Please remember that no one expects you to be an expert and often just being interested in what your child is doing is enough. You are doing a great job!
