Hello everyone at home. I hope that you are all keeping well and managing to have some fun at home as well as keeping up with your learning. These are some websites which I hope you will find useful. 

Please keep checking the files below as they are regulary updated.

BBC Bitesize have created a range of lessons covering a wide variety of subjects. In the Reception files below you will also find a new file with new links to learning websites. Please also see this guidance from the Government about supporting your child's learning at home. 

Please click here to access valuable information about the Read Write Inc phonics programme, that we teach at school. There are daily sessions which are streamed for Set 1, 2 and 3 sounds. Up until school closure most children were consolidating Set1 and moving towards Set2.

Practice is the key. You can also help your child to correctly form their letters and write labels for pictures or short sentences, listening carefully for the sounds they hear in words.

Please click here to visit The Oxford Owl website, which has lots of lovely e books to share together.

I Spy is a fun game to play and can be extended to writing, I can see a ...... Use the letter sound, rather than the letter name as a prompt.

Twinkl is offering parents the opportunity to create their own accounts and have an amazing range of activities and resources. They cover all areas of the Early Years and Foundation Stage and beyond. They have suggested daily planners if you want to ideas on how to structure your day, to include lots of fun creative activities. 


White Rose Maths is being shared across the school and has daily lessons for Early Years included. It has lovely visuals and ensures consistency in its approach to teaching.

Top Marks - The children often play some of the maths games in class on the interactive whiteboard and some of them are accessible on tablets as well as computers or laptops. 

Some more ideas......

If you have access to some seeds, see what you can grow and if a fruit or vegetable you may even be able to eat some when they have grown, with your family for tea. Cress is fast growing and great with eggs. You can grow them on cotton wool or a damp paper towel. 

If you have some compost, you could try growing seeds from apples or other vegetables like peppers. You can use finished yogurt pots or margarine tubs to plant them in. These can even be grown on a sunny windowsill. You could make drawings of them as they grow and label these or even take photographs.

How about making a scrapbook about Spring. You can cut out pictures from magazines, draw pictures, stick in leaves or press flowers or petals and stick them in your scrapbook.

If you have run out of glue, your parents could help make you some by mixing flour and water.


Parents can also share what you have been doing at home by uploading photos or short videos onto Tapestry.

If you would like to contact me please email  

Happy learning and playing 🙂

Best wishes

Mrs Ives
