Please remember to use the resources listed on the main Home Learning overview page such as Bug Club, Abacus, Oddizzi and Purple Mash.
We have provided some additional links and resources for parents to help with home schooling during this time. Teachers will not be marking or recording activities completed by the children.
Good luck to everybody during this new and difficult time. We hope you can enjoy spending time together learning and having some fun!
TES have produced a series of phonics lessons. These are aimed at children in Reception and Year 1 but may be useful for children in Year 2 who are not yet confident using phonics as an approach to reading. Details about the lesson content can be found in the documents below.
Additional phonics resources to support Letters and Sounds can be found at www.letters-and-sounds.com
Home learning packs
Please download a home learning pack by clicking on the documents below. These will be added to as required over the coming weeks. They contain ideas for activities but are not compulsory tasks and do not need to be returned to school. Teachers will not be marking or recording activities completed by the children. There are lots of other activities signposted on the home learning overview page of this website. You could also register at www.readliverpool.co.uk for access to free ebooks.
https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/ will link to 5 maths activities matched to EYFS. This will be updated each week. Every activity comes with a short video showing you clearly and simply how to help your child to complete the activity successfully.
Whilst you have been learning at home we have seen lots of lovely work in Purple Mash. We think it would be fun if you could all see each other’s work so you could have it posted on our class display boards. Any work you would like posted needs to be saved and ‘handed in’. If you want a piece of work posting then please type ‘post me’ in the comments to teacher box when you save and hand in your work. We are not able to put photos of children on the display board.

Ideas & websites to support our topics in EYFS
Some other fun activities to try:
- Try some cooking or baking together and then draw and label the ingredients that you used.
- Create a treasure trail of words around the house/garden with clues describing where to find them. (see below for suitable words and refer to twinkl for specific word lists for phonics phases 2, 3 and 4 words)
- Who has the best memory in your house? … Put a few items on a tray (for example, a crayon, an apple, a building brick, a toy car). Then look, cover, remember and check! Add more items to make to make it more challenging.
- Look at some family photographs. Copy the image in the photograph onto some paper using pencils / crayons / paints. You could write a sentence to explain what is happening in the photo.
- Make a puppet theatre using your teddies and toys to retell a favourite book.
- Play throw and catch using a ball or a soft object. Count how many throws you can successfully complete. After every 2 rallies you could add these up using a numberline eg. 4 + 5 = 9
- Log onto Active Learn and read every day.
- Draw a picture of what you have done and write a sentence about it.
- Write numbers to 20 on post-it notes and place them on the floor. Jump on a number and say the number that is one more / 1 less.
- Go on the website http://www.letters-and-sounds.com/ and play Phase 2 / 3 / 4 games.
- Make a poster about a country. Draw the flag, an animal from that country and other information.
- Cut out shapes and stick them on paper and make a shape picture.
- Find a small box and see how many objects you can fit in the box.
- Count forwards and backwards to 20.
- Write your numbers and letters
- Do some gardening or plant a seed / bulb
- Go on a shape hunt, how many different shapes can you find?
- Write down the different ways that make 10. You can use sweets , buttons, pieces of Lego etc. 3+7=10 4+6=10
Encourage the children to read and write these words. Start by pressing both palms together and ‘stretch’ the word out by separating your hands further apart with each sound in the word whilst saying each sound clearly out loud eg. t – a – p. Then clap hands together and say the finished word –> tap.
